A Reader's History of Science Fiction

Apr 1, 2022

I missed a few important books in the previous episode on alternate history. Here is an overview of those works.

Recommendation: "If Lee Had Not Won the Battle of Gettysburg" by Winston Churchill (yes, really).

Other works discussed:
The Grasshopper Lies Heavy from The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick
Fallen Axis from this Onion article.
The United Colonies Triumphant from The Two Georges by Harry Turtledove.
Proposed book by Abraham Lincoln from The Guns of the South by Harry Turtledove, along with remarks in the Southern Victory series.
Insane alternate World War II from this XKCD comic.
