A carnival of (or on) Speed

History Carnival No 18 is now up on Acephalous. It's unlike any history carnival you've ever seen before. (My drunken Greek symposium - tame in comparison - is here, should you be seeking a comparison.)

I might call it the History Carnival on speed, but that might disqualify Acephalous from leadership of the British Conservative Party, and I wouldn't want to do anything so nasty ... (or nice).

I hope that's not a bad thing...I initially intended to focus it all through Kahn, a kind of alterna-history Carnival, but after reviewing it, thought that some of the other pieces deserved their own mini-narratives. I suppose one of the things my insecurity drove me to do is give everyone I linked to a strong sense that I'd read and processed their entries, that I didn't simply list them, and I thought that incorporating them all into small, topical (but loosely collected, in the end) narratives would be one way to do that.

NO, it is not at all a criticism, I thought it was great fun, and different - which is one of the enjoyable things about the nature of carnivals, as they move around between different hosts. They get boring very quickly if just a list of links.
