David Gerrold takes you on a tour of alternate universes ... universes where Santa Claus isn't nice and the best man is actually elected president; where Ronald Reagan and Gregory Peck command the plane carrying the first atomic bomb and John F. Kennedy stars in the hit show ''star Track,'' where Franz Kafka doesn't write fiction and the Devil holds educational seminars. Introduction by Mike Resnick.
