October Books 16) Alternate Worldcons

16) Alternate Worldcons, ed. Mike Resnick

Not really a lot to say: a short anthology of very short stories about fantasised Worldcons. Also a moving poem about fans in a war zone by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. A couple of recurring themes: the impact of Star Trek is given grudging acceptance in two stories, and Mike Resnick and the (presumably fictional) Jerry Phipps are recurring characters. Picked it up cheap at Octocon and probably got my money's worth.
