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.
