Alternate History Fiction

What would have happened if the pilgrims had never landed in America? What would have happened if Germany had won World War II? What if the individuals convicted in the Salem witch trials were witches who resurrected for vengeance? Alternate history novels delve into “what if” scenarios, providing readers with a new perspective on the past and sometimes even the present.
