"Delivers plenty of laughs...A smart, layered satire for historians and cultural critics alike." - Kirkus Reviews
“A lot of books predict the future; “1916: The Blog” actually predicts the past. A smart, observant satire with unexpected heart, it’s the funniest book you’ll read all year, depending on what year you read it.” - Davy Rothbart, FOUND Magazine, This American Life
"Christian Schneider’s 1916: The Blog is wildly inventive concept that mixes historical research, a keen eye for social satire, witty writing, and giggle-inducing humor... Offbeat, madcap, unpredictable and a whole lot of fun." - Jim Geraghty, National Review
A lively and humorous novel of alternate history, "1916: The Blog" tells the story of Sebastian, a low-level newspaper typist who in 1916 comes into possession of a futuristic connectivity machine. When he discovers this new "internet," Sebastian runs into early 20th-Century scams, snake oil salesmen, medical quacks, dating websites, and trolls, all with hilarious consequences.
