Alternative Histories And Galaxies
However, this aspect of alternative histories is rarely addressed because the emphasis is on altered historical events on Earth. SM Stirling has a terraformed Venus and Mars. His Draka move into their Solar System and their antagonists go further. But cosmic sf is mainly developed in the future of what fictitiously remains our unaltered timeline.
Spaceships able to make instantaneous jumps between galaxies; one such ship visiting a planetary system in intergalactic space.
A relativistic spaceship accelerating between groups of galaxies and beyond this universe.
Inorganic intelligences spreading through and beyond the galaxy at sublight speeds.
Cities flying between stars; a planet flying to the metagalactic centre in time for a cosmic collision.
Star-dwelling energy beings communicating with civilizations in eleven galaxies and collapsing three galaxies.
A civilization spreading between galaxies, receiving messages from its future.
