The Goddess of Fortune
What if, by the passing of just two events, Japan and Germany had won World War 2? The Goddess of Fortune is a work of speculative fiction in which alternate history is explored, and consequences examined. - Beautiful Louise, while only 24 years old, uses her intelligence, wiles, and body to dominate the so-called "stronger sex." - Kaito Sasaki of the Bank of Tokyo, inspired by Lenin (“The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency”), proves just that with his printing of U.S. 100 dollar bills. - The treachery of Hermann "Fatso" Goering is uncovered and his punishment is swift. - The duplicity of Roosevelt and his so-called Brains Trust is exposed and the doubts of the urbane gentleman, Henry Morgenthau, are made clear. As a work of historical fiction, Goddess reveals the private foibles, quirks, and lusts of the famous (and often rich) of the period. How could the end goals of the Axis come to fruition given these events? Goddess explores just how, and in doing so brings to light in imaginative prose the lives of historical figures we have only known from our history books.
Reviews
Foreword Clarion

"This alternate history of WWII is also a reflection on modern-day economic and social missteps. When folks are clothed, Blencowe shows solid ability to write conversational interactions in a believable fashion, especially in the halls of power."

Kirkus Reviews

"...Blencowe succeeds in putting a unique spin on familiar events and creating plenty of new ones. He explores the darker connections among governments, corporations, and the military in an informed manner ("Nations have no permanent friends or allies, they only have permanent interests," one character says) and connects subplots in wildly different locales with relative ease."

San Francisco Book Review

"Goddess of Fortune is a tour-de-force of alternate historical fiction. The scenes jump from one end of the world to the next, but the action is almost constant. The book is filled with a tension, many times sexual, that teases the reader and leaves them yearning for more."
