AH editorial NY Times online Book Review

Last week the online BR published an article on AH. Writer first cited What Ifs of American History-Watergate. Mentions other stuff, too. Second part of the article she writes:"Just as counterfactuals employ too much imagination to qualify as historical works AH(sic) often labors under too great a load of artifical "facts" to take flight as fiction." Its one thing to create a novel of ideas and another to produce a novel that is vehicle for fiction. She mentions Man in the High Castle and Years of Rice and Salt.You will have to googol to NY Times and get a user name and password to read it. Comments?
