I read Harry Turtledove's The Guns of the South over the weekend. It's based on the premise that the South actually wins the Civil War due to the intervention of some time traveling folks who give them AK-47's. I actually liked it, and I think that it was very different in it's portrayal of folks like Robert E. Lee than I originally expected. I'm ashamed to say that I have stayed away from Mr. Turtledove's books in the past because I thought that the covers looked hokey, but now I'm going to read some of his other works. So I guess I do judge books by their covers.
