It was odd, whereas most anthologies dip up and down in quality, Altered Europa started poorly but really rocketed up in quality after a few stories. And shout out to @Thande and @Bruno in particular - their stories were some of the best in the entire anthologyGreat review.
You're right about anthologies being a mixed bag, I've found that to be the case for most of the ones I've read (and not just for alternate history).
It is supposed to be Frederick II yes. @Skinny87Just read over the review again and noticed something:
“Beginning with the death of William II, King of Prussia, on the battlefield of Kunersdorf in 1759,”
Is this supposed to be Frederick II or am I completely off base?
