Probably one of the main references for scientific approach to Alternate History in fiction to be published in English, it takes a very different approach from R. Evans' Altered Pasts (about deliberate misuse of history), to give but a name. It is also less thoughtfull than the French book "Pour une histoire des possibles" (Deluermoz & Singaravelou). On of the reproach I have is the rather poor selection of foreign langages studies mentionned, and the too anglo-saxon-centric approach taken overall. Still a good first step for those looking at the theory behind the popular genre.

This is not a collection of stories but of pseudo analysis. More like a scholastic paper than anything significant. It is NOT worth the charge.
Since it is not satisfied with review I guess I have to write more.
Amazon should be ashamed to sell this. It is worth only the $0.00 that I keep getting offered.
