Turtledove

The title character must have missed his chance to fight in The War That Came Early, heh heh heh. Turtle Fan (talk) 19:26, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Well, he's definitely living up to his name; this book was tentatively scheduled for a release in the fall of 2012.  It's still technically fall, but there isn't much of 2012 left.  TR (talk) 22:00, December 5, 2012 (UTC)

Storyline[]

Three Hearts and a Lion. That was a good story. Wonder if TMwCL is about the same premise.

It's out[]

Amazon is showing Multiverse for sale, so it was definitely published. I'll give it a week and see if our local library can obtain a copy. I'm not optimistic since the publisher seems to be a small, "boutique" type, and those seem to have a hard time getting books into larger libraries.

From the reviews I've read, HT's story is more of a direct sequel to the Anderson novel, rather than an incidental "untold" tale like "Trantor Falls". TR (talk) 15:56, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

I just checked the TPL catalog. Nothing listed, not even for the SF Reference Library. Pity. I vaguely recall reading Three Hearts and Three Lions and that I enjoyed it. It would make a good excuse to reread the Anderson book as well as what Turtledove does with it. ML4E (talk) 16:36, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
Saw it was at the reference library a few weeks ago and had a chance to finally read it today. I think I would like to re-read TH&TL before I do any more work here. A pity there isn't an equivalent wiki for the works of Anderson. I would have dropped links into the two character articles for this story the way TF did for the Foundation story. The only other comment I have is about Turtledove (in the best alter kocker accent): "always with the punning". ML4E (talk) 19:53, September 10, 2014 (UTC)
Maybe the best way to do it is to follow the model we used for "Eyewear". Have an article about the characters from Anderson's original, with a couple of paragraphs explaining who the character is and why s/he's important to TH&TL, then do a sub-section for the Turtledove work, in-universe. See the Esperanza article, for example. TR (talk) 17:46, September 12, 2014 (UTC)
I was thinking about doing something like that since my previous post. It would probably be best that way knowing my propensity to overwrite. This way my summary for the Anderson work will be based on the little I recall and so should be just the highlights. ML4E (talk) 18:41, September 12, 2014 (UTC)
