by Gregory BenfordTHE UNIVERSE NEXT DOOR
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 hold excursions in time depict bizarre new worlds — oddly familiar, disturbingly different.
