What if Hitler had not lost the Second World War?

After developing his own atom bomb, Hitler conquered most of Europe and Russia but reached a stalemate with America. In the ensuing cold war, Germany suffers renewed inflation and is stifled by an overstratified bureaucracy while America prospers but devolves into a fractured country of rugged individualists. This warped mirror image of our world is seen through the eyes of New York editor Alan Whittmore and through two of his publications.

Thirty years after the war’s end, Hilda Goebbels, the daughter of Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and now a world-famous anarchist, threatens to release her father’s long-suppressed diaries—revealing the bizarre fantasies at the core of Nazi doctrine, which could destroy the Reich.

But all that changed on his assignment to the Cay Habitat. Could you just stand there and allow the exploitation of hundreds of helpless children merely to enhance the bottom line of a heartless mega-corporation?

Leo Graf adopted 1000 quaddies—now all he had to do was teach them to be free.
