An Excerpt from "First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch," by Samuel Ben White

In 1941, the Japanese attacked the west coast of America and had soon overthrown the underequipped and poorly led Mexican armies. By 1945, they had cast the Russians out of Alaska because the Russians were too busy fighting the man with the little mustache to worry about another section of frozen tundra. By 1948, the Japanese were knocking on Texas' door and the leaders at Austin were forced to recall many of their troupes from Europe in order to fight the more immediately threatening menace at home.

In 1952, it looked as if Hitler would finally be defeated. He was hard-pressed on both fronts and it looked like the end. Mussolini -- disheartened and weakened by pneumonia -- had surrendered the previous winter, and all looked black for the Third Reich. But the madman played his hole card.

It was an offensive of two airplanes that brought the war to an end. The first airplane left a German-held airfield in western France while its counterpart was refueling over the enemy territory of Russia. Then, it happened.

On June 17, 1952, the world entered the nuclear age as the first atomic bomb was dropped over London. The ultimate death count exceeded a million people when the fires were put out. The British were forced to surrender when another bomb dropped on Glasgow two days later.

About First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch

"What if history didn't happen that way ... the first time?"

Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx.

But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdimensionally, Garison has traveled through time ... twice.

Now, he's in something called "The United States of America," and a woman he's never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or has he somehow changed history?
