I’m going to try something different this year for my long running Alternate History Thursday series. Instead of whatever story gets beamed into my mind while I sleep the night before, I will spend the entire year focused on one story. Yes, I tried it in the past, and I sometimes went back to that story, but no. This year will be different. This year I have a goal. This is the year The Lights Went Out on Broadway.
I will spend the remaining 11 posts detailing the alternate world that arose to produce the chilling story told in that song. Right now, I suggest you listen to this masterpiece and familiarize yourself it. There will be no history being told tonight. Your homework is to study the song, pay attention to the lyrics, and come back next month with an idea of what this world would look like.
