* CreepyUncle: [[spoiler: UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler]] in "Uncle Alf". The story consists of a series of letters from [[spoiler: Hitler]] to his niece, in a world in which the Germans won [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne]] and [[spoiler: Hitler]] is helping stamp out the French resistance. The letters are increasingly suggestive and disturbing, but the clincher is the final line of the story:

Harry Turtledove (yes, that's his real last name) is an author of [[AlternateUniverse Alternative History]] - one of the most prolific and accessible. He has written many, many books and short stories, some of them set in {{Alternate Universe}}s, some of them {{fantasy}} diverging from recorded history.

* UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar: Both directly and indirectly.
* UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution: With the same participants, only Our Continents Are Different.



* UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar: ''The Hot War'' trilogy presents an alternate history in which the Korean War goes nuclear, but due to the limitations of the technology of the early 1950's, only creates a CrapsackWorld rather than TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

* HumansAreSpecial: Just try to count the number of times in the ''Worldwar'' series that a member of the alien Race bemoans how different humans are to the Race themselves or their other subject species. Go on. We'll wait.

* CompoundTitle: The ''Counting Up, Counting Down'' anthology features two stories at the beginning and end, "Counting Up..." and "...Counting Down." Both are actually the same story told from different perspectives.

* MoneyDearBoy: Creator/MikeResnick explained the reason for some of Turtledove's more...inflated series during a lecture at my university: "He had to put his three daughters through college, all within a few years of each other." Not surprisingly, Turtledove's recent books have (mostly) been more streamlined: 2007-2009's ''Opening of the World'' trilogy, and 2009's ''Give Me Back My Legions!'' were lean, mean, and lots of fun.

** As one of his few stories written in the present day, Turtledove is clearly enjoying the opportunity to take jabs at preferred targets in the Supervolcano series. A fantastic gag has the main character turning from good CNN coverage of the volcano to Fox News, which blames the President for the volcano...and then disgustedly turning to MSNBC, which is instead blaming the Republican Congress.
