While the idea of parallel dimensions isn’t new — just ask any guy who’s grown a goatee — writer K Chess is taking a different approach to them in her new sci-fi novel Famous Men Who Never Lived (hardcover, Kindle) by showing us what it would be someone who has to live in a reality slightly different from their own.
