Every short story in this wonderfully varied collection has in common some diversion in history, some alternate reality from what we know, resulting in a very different world.

In addition to original stories specially commissioned from bestselling writers such as James Morrow, Stephen Baxter, and Ken MacLeod, there are genre classics from Kim Stanley Robinson, Harry Turtledove, and George Zebrowski: over 20 stories in all.

Alternate Histories - Oh Boy!!!


Compelling, engaging, mind-boggling - all words to describe this book. I found myself wondering ....... 'what if' with every turn of the page.



Wake up in a different reality altogether.


There are many and varied authors and historical situations presented that would have left us in a very different now. Some authors are better than others as you would expect, and some historical milestones that may be unknown to some readers. Overall highly recommended but maybe not too relevant to young readers who have not studied history.
