Alternate History Short Stories

Regular price $50.00

"What if?" history is a big topic for movies and real-world events alike, on Netflix, HBO and more. It's all science fiction, and this new book covers every angle from ancient worlds, to distant futures, World War Two, Steampunk and more.

What if the course of history had been changed by a different decision, a different victor, a different invention? Utopian stories and alternative history stories by H.G. Wells, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Castello Holford and others are combined here with new stories by new writers from open submissions, exploring the variety and delight of alternative history to reimagine the world around us: What if the Ancient Egyptians had conquered Rome? What if World War II had been won by the loser, not the victors? What if women had ruled the world for 4000 years not men?
