Publisher's Summary

“Alternitech” sends prospectors into alternate but similar timelines where tiny differences yield significant changes: a world where the Beatles never broke up, or where Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t gunned down after the Kennedy assassination, where an accidental medical breakthrough offers the cure to a certain disease, where a struggling author really did write the great American novel, or where a freak accident reveals the existence of a serial killer. 

"Alternitech" finds those differences - and profits from them.

Too short, but other than that...

This is a collection of short stories that all take place in the same world. There are even occasional references to characters or events that happened in other stories, which is fun.

A company sends "prospectors" to alternate timelines which are similar but slightly different to the current one. They look for things that don't exist in the current world, such as a hit song the Beatles never recorded here or the cure for a disease that hasn't yet been discovered. Of course, all such findings become the property of the company, but still...

I really enjoyed the idea of going to a similar but different world.

This story is read by the incredible Starla Huchton. If this book doesn't appeal to you, go listen to anything she's recorded. You won't be sorry.
