Bibliography

I have not attempted an exhaustive bibliography for the alternate history because such bibliographies already exist and are easily accessible. In addition, the sheer size of the field and the tendency of science fiction to go in and out of print makes the task of compiling such a list daunting, if not impossible. The Works Cited section provides bibliographic information for all primary and secondary works cited and all primary texts mentioned by title.

Hacker, Barton C., and Gordon B. Chamberlain. “Pasts that Might Have Been:
An Annotated Bibliography of Alternate History.” Extrapolation 22 (Winter 1981):
334–78

This was revised and updated as

Hacker, Barton C., and Gordon B. Chamberlain. “Pasts that Might Have Been,
II: A Revised Bibliography of Alternative History.” In Alternative Histories, edit-
ed by Charles G. Waugh and Martin H. Greenberg, 301–63. New York: Gar-
land, 1986.

This is an annotated bibliography of alternate histories, including short stories, works in languages other than English, and forthcoming books. It lists anthologies and also provides the titles of all the stories within the anthologies. The nexus
