I'd like to meet him some time, I think, but he's a bit funny-looking, don't you think? Turtle Fan 14:04, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

A bit....TR 15:27, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Omniscient NarratorEdit

The English lit major in me bristles a bit at the idea of assuming at the Narrator of the story is in fact HT. On the other hand, it probably is accurate in this case. TR 01:23, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

You were an English lit major? Huh, news to me.
On balance of evidence, it could go either way. Consider, though: Reading this story was painful!! The possibility of making mocking articles like this was the only thing that kept me from screaming. Turtle Fan 01:44, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
Oh. You win. (And I double-majored.) TR 01:48, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
Read the article on Rufus. He wasn't the POV (this story really didn't have one; HT would come closest to qualifying) but he was the main character and every piece of the story except perhaps the introduction involves him. So I made his article a summary for the whole story. Read it and imagine it going on and on for ten full pages. . . .
Your knowledge of English lit has come in handy around here many times, so I'm glad you double-majored. Turtle Fan 02:41, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Should 'the followers of Harry Turtledove are called Turtledovians' be allowed to stay. And yes,he does look funny... 20:59, May 14, 2013 (UTC)Zhukov15


Johnathan edited the sentence on Turteltaub to read "the pseudonym "H.N. Turteltaub" (a literal German translation of his surname)". I don't have a problem, as such, but Turteltaub is the original German version of HT's surname and Turtledove is the literal translation. Suggestions on rewording this?

Probably "the original German version of his now Anglicized surname". Something like that. TR (talk) 16:07, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

HT interview, June 2020Edit

A new interview with HT was just released. Not terribly informative, and HT mixes and matches the names of two characters from different series.Matthew Babe Stevenson (talk) 18:58, June 26, 2020 (UTC)
