Historian Thomas Cahill argued that it was the Jewish people who invented the very concept of history as we know it. They were the first to perceive time not as an endless circle of life, death and rebirth, but as the flight of an arrow, on a linear path to somewhere from somewhere.

But what if time is not one arrow, but a volley of arrows?

What if there are other timelines, other histories, other Jews? Would they still have a covenant with the one God, or would they know strange gods? Would they have survived banishment, pogrom and Holocaust? What if the Holocaust had not occurred? Or what if it had succeeded beyond Hitler's darkest dreams?

Some of the world's greatest speculative fiction authors explore these roads not taken, and many others, in Other Covenants: Alternate Histories of the Jewish People, the first-ever anthology of Jewish alternate history fiction.

Contributors include Jack Dann, Robert Silverberg, Harry Turtledove, Jane Yolen, Lavie Tidhar and Benjamin Rosenbaum, among many others
