Harry Turtledove
Fiction has to be plausible. All history has to do is happen.
Turtledove quotes
Many things are possible. Few things are certain.
I can't not write. I'm obsessive-compulsive, and I know it.

Turtledove Harry quotes
I see people who write characters who are loonies and make them convincing and believable, and I envy them tremendously. I donít really understand them. Itís funny, because Iíve created my own monster. In the ĎGreat Warí and ĎAmerican Empireí books, Iím writing the person who is the functional equivalent of Adolf Hitler. Iím inside his head ó and thatís a very strange place for somebody who thinks of himself as a fairly rational fellow to be. Thatís alarming
Turtledove Harry
I'm a social caterpillar. I am not a social butterfly
Harry Turtledove quotes
I suspect S.F. has an individualistic, antiauthoritarian trend to it not least because so many of the people who read and write it (not all by any means, but quite a few) are innerdirected introverts who make neither good leaders nor good followers. Am I talking about myself? Well, now that you mention it, yes. But I ainít the only one, not even close.
