I have a critique group that is classical speculative fiction: Sci fi, fantasy, supernatural, horror, etc. We have a person who would like to join and is writing alternate history. Some well-known sci fi writers like Harry Turtledove have done alternate history, but does it really get categorized with the above spec fiction subgenres? It is in that section at at least one of our bookstores. Interested in others' take on this.
