Well, in any case.....believe it or not, I actually wrote, compiled, and self-published(thru Smashwords, to be clear) my own collection of short stories some time ago, called "Uchronian Tales".

PoD is a (more) succesful Napoleonic invasion of Ireland, under Hoche in 1796 (all it took was one day of calm weather and 15000 french troops are ashore in a then poorly defended Ireland) , and all that follows from it.
