Night after night dark dreams haunt Abraham Lincoln. Night after the ghost of an unknown professor knocks at his bedroom window. Why are the two President and professor bound together by bonds not even death can sunder? Why must one die for the other to live? How is the Gettysburg Address but a compact between the two of them, the living and the dead?
Award-winning author Lee Allred (DC Comics, Baen Books, Asimov's) pieces together this complex puzzle from presidential secretary John Hay's diaries, Lincoln's innermost thoughts, and commemorative speeches made a quarter century after the war.
Dubbed the "Master Sergeant of Alternate History," Lee Allred's award-winning short fiction has appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction magazine and several science fiction anthologies. He's also written for DC Comics and Image Comics.
