Publisher's Summary

Fourteen outstanding authors. Fourteen worlds that never were.

Throughout the human experience, historians have wondered, “What if?” What if Japan had been on the side of the U.S. in World War II? What if things had been just a little different in the Falklands? What if Russia had started World War Three?

Wonder no more, for these questions, along with many others, are answered within the chapters of this book. Told by a variety of award-winning authors, like Sarah Hoyt, the 2018 Dragon Award Winner for Alternate History, and Kacey Ezell, the winner of the 2018 Baen Reader’s Choice Award, Those in Peril, deals with naval warfare that never happened in our world...but easily could have.

The first book in the exciting new Phases of Mars anthology series, there is something for everyone inside! From sailing ships, to steam, to today’s modern aircraft carriers, Those in Peril traces several centuries of naval warfare...that wasn’t. From adding a psychic...to making a different choice of friend or foe...to something insignificant toppling a kingdom, this book has it, so come aboard and find out “what if” all of these things had changed history...just a little. You’ll be glad you did!

This book has everything

I like this book because it may not be exact history but it tells of naval warfare from the very beginning. Challenges and performance of ships and their crew. From sails to submarines, Their challenges in war. Yes I would recommend this book, it gives so much information about the sea in the wars. Thank you to the author and the narrator great job.

I enjoyed this collection, but the accents were atrocius and distracting. Not a stage play.

Weak stories, reader completely out of his depth.

The producers REALLY should make sure that a performer of stories of naval alternate history can pronounce names like "Trafalgar" and "Crimea"! Didn't an editor or someone listen to this before committing it to the final recording?

Several of the stories have a more of a YA flavor than an atmosphere of mature historical research and realistic writing.

Good stories and terrible narration.

The stories are decent but the narration ruins it. Mispronunciations, poor phrasing, and hokey accents take you out of the story.

Cannon fire and blood in the scuppers!

I enjoyed almost all of these short stories. There is a nice spread across alternate timelines, far in the past and into the future. However, the narrator could use more practice with the content and with word pronunciation. I was jarred out of the stories several times when he missed the rhythm of the text, as well as the poor pronunciation of common military jargon. The narrator's accents were good overall, as well as imitating female character voices. This audiobook is well worth the listen.

good stories, but the narrator

Dick Van Dyke proved over 50 years ago in Mary Poppins that Americans should stay away from what we perceive the accents of other nationalities to be. The distraction was just too much so I stopped listening at the 9 hr point.

Fun on the high seas

There is nothing more fun than what could have been or what could have happened the tales in book do this rather well from battles with pirates to the UK and the USA frighting each other on the high seas.

I really enjoyed theses stories I wish they had been longer a great way to spend a few hours.
