Other Earths an Anthology
A collection of 11 stories dealing with alternate paths of history including stories by Stephen Baxter and Gene Wolf. Robert Charles Wilson deals with a world in which there was no American Civil War whilst Stephen Baxter's Unblinking Eye is set in a world where the Incas are discovering and education the old world. However many of the stories verge on the edge of fantasy such as Thoeodora Goss's Csilla's Story. The scenarios seem to lack plausbility for example the Holy City and EM'S Reptile Farm which has a scenario of Crusaders leading a crusade in America.
