The Sidewise Awards for Alternate History were conceived in late 1995 to honor the best allohistorical genre publications of the year. The awards were created by Steven H Silver, Evelyn C. Leeper, and Robert B. Schmunk. The first awards were announced in summer 1996 and honored works from 1995. The award takes its name from Murray Leinster’s 1934 short story “Sidewise in Time”, in which a strange storm causes portions of Earth to swap places with their analogs from other timelines.
The Sidewise Awards for Alternate History winners were announced at the 2013 Worldcon/LoneStarCon 2 in San Antonio, Texas, USA on August 31st :
