Three Miles Down

A pleasure to read with Jerry’s gee-whiz awe, combined with intelligent humor. The nods and winks toward genre standouts from the ’70s add to the verisimilitude and fun for SF fans.

The House of Daniel

While alternate-history king Turtledove (Bombs Away; In the Balance) unsurprisingly has a firm grasp of the tale's time period (especially the baseball of the era), his incorporation of vampires, werewolves, and zombies fails to be integral to the story. In addition, the plot moves at such a leisurely pace that even those readers with a high tolerance for detailed descriptions of baseball games might lose patience.

Supervolcano: Things Fall Apart

Turtledove has a knack for creating well-rounded characters who epitomize the time he describes, whether in works of alternative history or speculative fiction. Series fans and readers who clamor for "disaster" novels should enjoy this ongoing chronicle of a possible future.

Supervolcano: All Fall Down

Tracking the Ferguson family's fortunes in a vastly changed America, alternative history master Turtledove (The Guns of the South; Days of Infamy) tells in microcosm the story of a nation coping with an unavoidable natural disaster. His chilling look at a plausible future will arouse interest in his fans as well as readers who enjoy ecothrillers.

The War That Came Early

The author's fans should enjoy this further permutation of world history, even while wondering how many "new" ways to tell a familiar story remain. [Library marketing.]
