I can't say enough nice things about this collection of alternate history mysteries. Alternate histories are fun, as it lets the author and reader speculate what would have happened if history had taken a left, instead of the right we know about. This collection sees Azteck empires in a modern North America or the Nazi's rising to power in the US, rather than Germany.

Adding the mystery coating to alternate history gives quite a dimension to the stories. Diiferent styles of mysteries abound, so don't worry that it's all Philip Marlow. Several stories also cleverly integrate the role of detective/private eye into their mythos.

Editor Lou Anders has done a great job selecting contributions to the anthology. This is worth picking up.
