Sci-fi, time-travel, western, horror—genres crash in this grand, pulpy novel of American history gone wrong.
#1 Amazon Kindle Time-Travel* Best-Seller!
When President Abraham Lincoln chose to keep the union together rather than wage civil war over slavery, he put America on a very different path, leading to a future where slavery still existed on earth—and on the planets earth had conquered.
In that grim future, an experiment in genetic technology goes terribly wrong, creating a grotesque, shape-shifting monster known as the Proteus.
Frank Deadeye, a free African American lawman, has dedicated his life to hunting down the beast. His primary weapon: a prosthesis quantum-microprocessor ring-bot that communicates with his brain by nerve induction. Fusing his consciousness with the bot’s data and analysis, Frank can perform superhuman feats. He’s been known to dodge bullets. Hell, he’s been known to catch them.
But when the Proteus escapes, Frank needs to draw on all his training, all his strength, and all his courage. Because not only is the Proteus a living nightmare—sadistically violent and virtually indestructible—but the monster has escaped into a territory more wild and dangerous than any Frank has known: the past.
And not just any past. America, 1861.
