Summary
  • Every short story in this varied collection has one thing in common: a divergence from historical reality resulting in a world very different from the one we know today. --
  • As well as original fiction specially commissioned from bestselling writers such as James Morrow and Ken MacLeod, there are genre classics such as Fritz Leiber's "Catch that Zeppelin" and Kim Stanley Robinson's tale of the Second World War atomic bomber Enola Gay being replaced by the Lucky Strike---with profoundly different consequences. --Book Jacket
