The new interim issue of Common-place takes up the question of alternative histories, exploring counterfactual approaches to early American history in a variety of media. Benjamin Cloyd discusses the faux-documentary “CSA,” Jonathan Beecher Field and Jan Rune Holmevik review the third installment of “Assassin’s Creed,” and Melvyn Stokes thinks about what history would have been like if Abraham Lincoln were, in fact, a vampire hunter. All this, plus Radiclani Clytus’ review of “Django Unchained,” a new installment of Josh Brown’s graphic novella “Ithaca,” and Poetic Research from Nicole Stelton O’Donnell, can be found at http://www.common-place.org/.
