Although we all came into this genre by different means, the vast majority of us started off by reading a Harry Turtledove novel. I know I did and I am always pleased to hear that people had a similar experience. Even if you didn't, you can't deny his impact on the genre. His prolific writing style has almost guaranteed that he has written about most major points of divergence.
So please if you are on Facebook and want to chat with some like minded Harry Turtledove fans, join the group!
