Dico S.F. – Uchrony

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Uchrony is a literary genre imagining what would be our History if one (or more) past event(s) had taken place in some other way. How would be our present if the Confederates had won the Civil war? If the Germans had won the World War II? If Mary Quant hadn’t invent the miniskirt? 🙂

In short, uchrony is the “if” art.
