I was very excited to get my hands on this book. The moment that I heard about it, it sounded like the perfect book for me. Sci-fi and alternate time line stories. How could you go wrong. But alas, it did. The stories were too far out in left field. Instead of alternate time lines, they were deep into science fiction and tales of fiction, bordering on fairy tales. It's not even a case of improbable, but impossible (even in the realm of sci-fi). I'm sure that some people will enjoy these stories. But I don't think that they could even make a Doctor Who episode out of any of them.
