It was a FReeper who turned me on to Harry Turtledove who definitely goes out of his way to find unique ways of thinking of things.
His short story “The Road Not Taken” can be found here (I just downloaded it to my kindle for a more in depth read)
Turtledove is awesome.
You know, out of the walls of books I have and of the many times people recommend him to me, I still haven’t read him. I don’t know why. I never hear word one but praise for him.
I gotta fix that.
Thanks for that!
