The Mammoth Book of Alternate Histories

Ian Watson, Ian Whates

2 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Fantasy

Over 40 fascinating stories of worlds that might have been

Every short story in this wonderfully varied collection has one thing in common: each features some alteration in history, some divergence from historical reality, which results in a world very different from the one we know today. As well as original stories specially commissioned from bestselling writers such as James Morrow, Stephen Baxter and Ken MacLeod, there are genre classics such as Kim Stanley Robinson's story of how World War II atomic bomber the Enola Gay, having crashed on a training flight, is replaced by the Lucky Strike with profoundly different consequences.

Praise for the editors:

'Mr Watson wreaks havoc with what is accepted - and acceptable.' The Times

'One of Britain's consistently finest science fiction writers.' New Scientist
