Summary (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 had not occurred at all?

In this stellar collection, twelve of science fiction's most imaginative minds have altered the past to reveal a present of astonishing and startling possibilities - a rare glimpse of what might have been. From a Germany that won the war to a modern exodus from Egypt, from the death of ancient Greece to the true secret of the Soviets, these bold excursions in time depict bizzare new worlds - oddly familiar, disturbingly different.
