Summary (From the publisher):

"History is something that never happened, written by a man who wasn't there." - Anonymous

In this all-new collection of original novellas, four award-winning masters of alternate history turn back time, twisting the facts with four brilliant excursions into what might have been by traversing Worlds That Weren't

Under the influence of the philosopher Sokrates, the Athenian general Alkibiades leads his soldiers to victory over the Spartans in New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove's "The Daimon."

Set in the same in the same universe as The Peshwar Lancers, "Shikari in Galveston" by national bestselling author S. M. Stirling features an Angrezi aristocrat's expedition to the wilds of Texas - and his growing admiration for the natives who dwell there.

In 1453, a rather different Turkish Empire raised the flag of Astarte's Bloody Cresent over Constantinople. Four years later, European mercenaries find themselves stranded on the coast of North Africa - with an embarrassing corpse - in "The Logistics of Carthage" by Mary Gentle.

In Walter Jon Williams's "The Last Ride of German Freddie," a mysterious Old World figure stalks Tombstone, Arizona, as a cardsharp, trading philosophy - and lead - with the likes of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.

The past isn't what it used to be...
