I enjoyed some of the stories, but not all, thus I don't quite feel like it's the best. I am a huge fan of alternative history, but was kind of disappointed with some of these stories. The novella ("Bring the Jubilee" by Ward Moore) I felt could have been better off as a standalone book rather than put right in the middle of this anthology (where it takes up more than a quarter of the book). I personally disliked that story, as it seemed to drag on without much to bring you in.

However, some of the stories are worth checking out, including the "Death of Captain Future" - a retro futuristic story, that I enjoyed despite the fact that it isn't quite a "history" story.
