(From the publisher):
What would have happened if history had been different: if the major events that shaped our times had occurred in a different way - or not at all? In this thought-provoking volume, eleven outstanding science-fiction writers and one legendary statesman alter the past to better see the present.
From a Trojan War in which Helen surrenders to a Civil War fought with robots, from a World War I in which Teddy Roosevelt tries to recapture the glory of San Juan Hill to a World War II in which the race is not for atomic weapons but for orbital rockets, these bold excursions in time depict bizarre new worlds - oddly familiar, disturbingly different. A rare glimpse of What Might Have Been...
