Would you change one thing in the past, if you could? Speculative fiction writers ask “What If?” for a mind-bending exercise of imagination in each of the short stories of this new, great collection from Samuel Peralta. Every writer’s style is different, and the stories take on different issues in varied periods of history. I enjoyed the challenge of exploring strange new worlds in this anthology. I highly recommend the book to stimulate new thoughts on how history shapes society.
