's review

really liked it

It's difficult to write a review for several short stories but this anthology makes it even more difficult because most of them were very thought-provoking. I particularly liked the alternative history stories over the mythology-based ones and the what-if tales relating to slight changes, anything as switching as having a female cosmonaut to somewhat larger things around readers labeled as witches to massive historical moments leading to even greater catastrophes, while Under Pressure shows a very realistic account of a deep sea political murder with line that I thought most accurately summed up the entire anthology "There was a time when all this might never have happened." To sum up, where I enjoyed some stories more than others, the ones I did enjoy were so good that I couldn't give them less than 5 stars. Great work.
