The Sinners from Mitar
I am not a fan of time travel stories, but this collection of alternate histories does not have too many of that sort of genre. The stories are all well written, thought-provocative, and interesting. It's a good-cross section of "what if" ideas from most of the 20th century USA. A story that makes me think, or brings a tear to the eye is always appreciated. There's a couple here.

I was not real impressed with it as there is little in the way of macro changes in history. These stories seem to be focused on the effects on a few people rather than the world. I could not stay with any of the stories more than 8-10 pages. Oh well, not my type of stories, but you might enjoy them.

Multiple Stories, multiple levels of expertise. For me, the best has always been "Bring the Jubilee" somewhat expanded in a later novel form.

ok

In my view, the William Sander's story "The Undiscovered" is more than worth the price of the entire volume. I read it years ago, and find myself returning to it with pleasure and recommending it to others.
Halloween
This was my introduction to alternate history short fiction. Subject matter is fascinating but the writing itself didn't overly impress. Appreciated Turtledoves comments as they were brief, interesting and insightful. I got this book on
Mozel
Most stories were easy had clever premises but were still easy to follow. A moderate level of historical knowledge is needed by the reader to enjoy fully.
Nice to see a change that you don't expect in a book or for alternate history. would advised for anyone
