I've loved reading Speculative Fiction since I stumbled upon "A Sound of Thunder"
as a child. There's lots out there that deal with wars - tons of books, movies, and even video games about the dystopic future if Germany had won WW2, etc.
Is there anything recent that involves a speculative future where Al Gore won the 2000 election? Obviously the largest piece of this is the creative curiosity of how the 9/11 terrorist attacks and subsequent foreign policy would have been different, but I'm interested in it all. It seems like someone should have written something by now! Any links to books or websites appreciated.
