Which of Harry Turtledove's sf¹ works are not alternate history?

The only one I know of is The Case of the Toxic Spell Dump. There's possibly the Videssos series, from the Wikipedia description. What else?

¹ By sf, I mean any speculative fiction, whether it's science fiction, fantasy, or other subcategory, but not “mundane” historical novels.

    Seems like a legit question to me. Direct, answerable... if you're going to close it, Mr. Moderator, close it for not being a "true" sci-fi question. I vote to reopen. Jan 23, 2011 at 10:42

    A list would definitely be finite, so it's not really a "list" question that can go on and on and is never resolved.

    @Mark: Ok, clearly you and I have different tastes in question titles. If you object to my rollback, let's please discuss it on Meta or in chat.

  • My bad. Yeah, I'll run it by you, I just wanted to make the title a question, sorry for stepping on your feet. Jan 25, 2011 at 23:28

I found a site that lists all Harry Turtledove's book with an indication of what type of book it is.

  • Except that list categorizes works as either SF or T[rue history], never both.

Probably dozens. There's a very rich wiki devoted to him at http://turtledove.wikia.com/wiki/Harry_Turtledove_Wiki

    On this page, like others I found when googling, I can find a list of his alternate history writings. I'm looking for a list of the rest, in a more manageable form that taking the full list and crossing off the elements of the alt-hist list.

  • It might not exist. You might want to get in touch with some people at that wiki and start a Non-Alternative History category there. The community can pitch in and the list will be built over time.
