Card, Orson Scott. Tales of Alvin Maker
Divergence: 1520 CE
What if: Natural magic works. Also, the course of American colonization took a different course as a result of the Aztecs defeating Cortes and of the successful Puritan revolution in Britain.
Series note: Series including Seventh Son, Red Prophet, Prentice Alvin, Alvin Journeyman, Heartfire, and The Crystal City. One additional and final volume, entitled Master Alvin, was long expected but has apparently never been written. There are two related short stories, "Grinning Man" and "The Yazoo Queen", which take place between Heartfire and The Crystal City. Note that the first three volumes of the series were collected in the omnibus volume Hatrack River. The second book is being published in comic book form (with issues then collected as graphic novels) by Marvel as by Card and Roland Bernard Brown.
