2020 got you down? Stressed about ongoing mass extinction, unavoidable climate catastrophe, global pandemic? Any of a host of other ills? Well, when there's no other way, why not rewrite history? Try an alternate history, available in books and movies, to change the present by rewriting the past. Whether it be a planet-threatening meteor impact, or a different outcome to past world wars, alternate histories are guaranteed to provide you an alternate present. And in 2020, doesn't that sound like just what the doctor ordered? Alternate histories, think different. (Apple)
