With shocking vividness, Turtledove demonstrates the extreme fragility of our modern world . . . This is state-of-the-art alternate history, nothing less
<i>Publishers Weekly</i> on HOW FEW REMAIN)
Turtledove plays heady games with actual history, scattering object lessons and bitter ironies along the way. Strong, complex characters against a sweeping alt-historical background.

Good fun. It has an authentic speculative quality, energy and dash.
<i>Time Out</i> on A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
Engrossing ... definitely the work of one of alternate history's authentic modern masters . . . totally fascinating.
