Book of the Week: Liberating Atlantis.

As it is Sunday, we shall now switch out On Stranger Tides for Harry Turtledove’s Liberating Atlantis. It’s the third book of an alternate history series where the eastern half of the North American continent (named Atlantis by the inhabitants) had apparently been detached millions of years previously and more or less parked in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The previous two books highlighted the alternate’s version of the Age of Discovery and the American Revolution; this one looks to address Atlantis’ version of the American Civil War.

Or you could just buy it because it’s by Harry Turtledove. I find that to be a remarkably successful book-buying strategy.

    Sounds like a rewrite of his alternative US history series. I can’t agree with your endorsement of Turtledove as a writer. He got boring way back. And for a writer of popcorn, that’s a bad thing.

    I have to agree with Raven. After the horrible Mongolian goat rope that was Turtledove’s 16-volume (okay, maybe it was just 12, but it sure felt like 16) rewrite of the American Civil Wars, I’m not touching anything else the man writes. Outside of his narrow historical specialty, he’s an ignorant, bigoted idiot.
