Some of science fiction's most visionary authors present a collection of chilling "what if" stories that offer an alternate version of actual historical events in an anthology that includes Kim Stanley Robinson's "The Lucky Strike," Greg Bear's "Through Road No Wither," and works by Gregory Benford, Susan Schwartz, Harry Turtledove, and others.

7 out of 10

A great mixed bag of Alternative History SF. The Standouts in this collection would be Kim Stanley Robinson's take on Hiroshima. Greg Bear's story about Nazi Europe and of course Ward Moore's classic 'Bring the Jubilee'. Some not so great, but that is to be expected in any collection of stories.

This book was set free to find a new reader; I'm so glad you've found it!

I'd be thrilled if you'd make a journal entry to let the book's previous readers know that it's safely in your hands - you may even do so anonymously.

If you're new to BookCrossing, I hope you will take some time to explore this wonderful free and anonymous community of book lovers and learn about what it has to offer. If you decide to sign up, you may use me (hyphen8) as your referring member, but that's certainly not required.

In fact, there are no requirements: this is now your book and you may do whatever you like with it. You're welcome to keep it for as long as you wish, and you can even mark it for your "permanent collection"...but you don't have to.

Please do feel free to make a journal entry when you're done with the book saying what you thought of it or what you plan to do with it next: if you decide to pass it this book to another reader or leave it for someone else to find, joining BookCrossing will allow you to follow the book's future travels whenever another reader makes a journal entry...who knows where it will turn up next?
