FAN #103: "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" by Johnny Pez

Up today at the Sobel Wiki are two more For All Nails vignettes, both posted by their authors.  First, there's my own #103: "Matchmaker, Matchmaker", in which a royal marriage is arranged in July 1974 between King Fernando of New Granada and Princess Sophia of Great Britain.  Next is David Mix Barrington's #110A: "Between the Rivers", in which a political analyst discusses the August 1974 election results in the C.N.A.

"Matchmaker, Matchmaker" was first posted to the soc.history.what-if newsgroup on 10 August 2002, and "Between the Rivers" on 25 August 2002.

Princess Sophia, btw, is based on a shw-i regular from back in the day who was noted for her brilliance and elegance.  (Check out the Wikipedia article on Netley Abbey, much of it her work, for evidence of both her brilliance and her elegance.)
