about this book

In this definitive anthology of alternate history stories-each presenting chilling “what if” scenarios from the last one hundred years­-science fiction’s most visionary writers offer fourteen of the most mind-bending tales imaginable. Including alternate versions of the American Civil War, World War II, and Vietnam by such authors as Poul Anderson, Greg Bear, Gregory Benford, War Moore, Larry Niven, Kim Stanley Robinson, Bruce Sterling, and Harry Turtledove himself, this is a collection of the most unnerving accounts of the world that could have existed.
