The Lucky Strike (Google eBook)
The classic and controversial story which Robinson has personally chosen for PM Press's new Outspoken Authors series begins on a lonely Pacific island, where a crew of untested men are about to take off in an untried aircraft with a deadly payload that will change the world forever. Until, that is, something goes wonderfully wrong. As a special addition, Robinson has also included an essay, A Sensitive Dependence on Initial Conditions, which dramatically deconstructs history to explore what might have been if things had gone differently over Hiroshima on that fateful day in 1945.

A decent short story, with good characters and an interesting plot. I was hoping for a more surprising alternate outcome than this. Read full review

Nice alternative history book (short story) but I would have liked more logical analysis of why the history changed the way it did. Read full review
