Posts Tagged ‘Byzantine Empire’


Harry Norman Turtledove, born June 14, 1949, is a brilliant writer, who has done work in the genres of historical fiction, alternate histories, and Sci-Fi.

He is a Historian, and has a PhD in Byzantine history.  He has been dubbed “The Master of Alternate History”, and has strong elements of Military Sci-Fi as well in many of his novels.

I personally found his series “WoldWar | Colonization” to be entertaining and fascinating. It takes a special kind of genius to do an alternate history universe where an Alien Invasion happens in the middle of World War II.

I highly recommend you pick up this series and read. If you are like me and are also a history buff, you would enjoy many of his other series, which include a series in which the Byzantine Empire rose to world dominance. Fascinating reading!!
