Discussion: Alternate History – When Things Changed

JFK alternative history

Today’s topic comes from QSFer John Allenson:

“When things changed. What stories do you like that rewrite an event in history? Examples: What if Napolean had decided to invade Scotland rather than Russia? What if Abraham Lincoln had lost the election to become POTUS?”

I like this one. It’s an area of speculative fiction we don’t discuss all that often – the future as seen from the past.

There are so many moments when history spun on a dime and went off in another direction because of a single event or series of events.

So where would you change the world? And to throw in a little queer seasoning, what events could have made things better (or worse) for the LGBT community, if only they had gone differently?
