Harry Turtledove recommends
The Wild Blue and the Gray
The Wild Blue and the Gray (1991)
William Sanders
"THE WILD BLUE AND THE GRAY is a tragicomic alternate look at the first great catastrophe of the twentieth century. Laughter is often the only way to shield ourselves from pain that would otherwise be intolerable. Sanders understands this well--and also that, the more things change, the more they sometimes look the same."
Against the Tide of Years
Against the Tide of Years (1999)
(Island in the Sea of Time, book 2)
S M Stirling
"Amazingly real. The research is impeccable, the writing excellent"
Honoured Enemy
Honoured Enemy (2001)
(Legends of the Riftwar, book 1)
Raymond E Feist and William R Forstchen
"One of the most intriguing writers today in the field of historical and military science fiction"
Lion's Blood: A Novel of Slavery and Freedom in an Alternate America
Lion's Blood: A Novel of Slavery and Freedom in an Alternate America (2002)
Steven Barnes
"...goes to the heart of the human condition...one of the important novels of the year, and not to be missed."
Long Walks, Last Flights: And Other Strange Journeys
Long Walks, Last Flights: And Other Strange Journeys (2008)
Ken Scholes
"A hot new voice to watch for... Grab on now, because he's going places."
Lamentation
Lamentation (2009)
(Psalms of Isaak, book 1)
Ken Scholes
"Ken Scholes is a hot new voice to watch for on the interesting frontier between science fiction and fantasy. He has a keen eye for action and a keen ear for the sounds of the human heart. Grab on now, because he's going places."
36
36 (2012)
Martin Berman-Gorvine
"Read 36 as a well-written, scarily plausible if-this-goes-on novel. Or read it as a highly intelligent philosophical meditation. But whatever you do, read it."
