Author Essay

The thing about Alternate History is that not enough people know it exists.  Sure, they may have read the occasional Alternate History novel or story, but they probably didn’t know the genre has a name (Alternate History!) or even that it is a genre!  So we at Del Rey decided to do a book of short stories as a kind of introduction to the genre.  Fortunately, the editors of Isaac Asimov’s Magazine and Analog magazine had already had the idea for an anthology made up of stories they originally published in their two magazines.  Perfect.  After all, there’s nothing I like better than having someone else do my work for me!
