I initially read The Road Not Taken in my Science Fiction Lit class during my undergrad (I miss that class!).  I had been thinking about the story the last few days and I had to reread and share!  I ran into some problems though because I could not find this particular short story listed by itself.  So here is a cute, and relevant picture from Pinterest and I provided the link to Turtledove’s website.  I am afraid to provide a synopsis because I don’t really want to spoil the story for you.

Just know that Turtledove is the king of ‘what if?’.  This story takes a different look at point of Frost’s ‘The Road Not Taken.”  And he does so utilizing alien cultures and technological advancement!  Just read it!

Sorry for the short review.  Anyone out there a Turtledove fan!?
