Carolyn
Some stories better than others (of course), but really liked the premise that the divergence was from scientific reasons, instead of the more usual military battle/political figure ones.

I was looking for more by Charles Stross, and though this collection of short stories by many authors would be fun. I was very disappointed, though I did enjoy the Charles Stross story in the collection. On the whole, the description of each short story tended to be far superior than the stories themselves.

I've always been a big fan of "What if?" stories, and the editor has assembled a great collection here.

Well, that was . . . interesting. Some of the stories were thought-provoking. Some were confusing. Some I just didn't like.

These stories are a way of asking what if. Some make more sense than others., but it's definitely a fun read.

Although a very interesting premise, the writing fell flat. Stories were forced and not very clever. A missed opportunity.
