Countersolar! by Richard A Lupoff( Book )
7 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in English and held by 270 libraries worldwide
In this followup to Circumpolar!, Lupoff again admits us to his engagingly loopy alternate universe where the popular culture's far-fetched ideas turn out to be literally true. In a peaceful 1942 that hasn't heard of Adolf Hitler, a competition emerges between an American aircraft (crewed by Babe Didrikson and, as absent-minded navigator, Albert Einstein) and an Argentinian-German plane (carrying Juan Peron and his Evita). They're flying to a counter-Earth on the other side of the sun that is a warped mirror image of their world, with its own Evita et al. On the way, they discover in the asteroid belt a still-thriving ancient Egyptian civilization using powerful rays to influence events on Earth. This lively, well-paced adventure story wonderfully recalls the icons and attitudes of the period but does not neglect a little hindsight on developments that may lead to nuclear weapons
