A clever collection of "What If" stories focusing on the world of showbiz, from Irish writer Robert Neilson, released in this smart collection published by Elastic Press.
"In these fourteen short stories entertainment is explored in all its forms, subtly twisted into alternate realities where music, boxing, film, and television distort history to sometimes comic, sometimes tragic effect. In Neilson's science fiction, fantasy lives just around the corner from reality.
What if John Lennon had been kicked out of the Beatles? What if Elvis' twin brother had survived? What if we could go back in time to give reality TV a historical perspective? What if the Pope was Irish, a gambler, and needed to bet on a dead cert? Open this book and find out."
