Harry Turtledove is an American author of alternate history, historical fiction, science fiction and fantasy novels. He is the author of several different series, including the Southern Victory, Worldwar, Crosstime Traffic and other series. He has been referred to “The Master of Alternate History.” He has written under several pseudonyms, including Eric G. Iverson (early in his career) and H.N. Turteltaub (a modified version of “turtle dove” in German). He is married to fellow author Laura Frankos.

Harry Turtledove started his career as an author in 1979 with Wereblood under the pen name Eric G. Iverson, which he used because publishers did not believe readers would believe his real name. He would use that nom de plume until 1985. Below is a list of Harry Turtledove’s books in order of when they were originally published (and in chronological order):
