Welcome to the world of master fabulist Edward Morris, where History has been pulled down a Hieronymous Bosch rabbit-hole and everything makes far too much sense. In this first volume of Morris's alternate history tour de force, on an East Coast two centuries after Armageddon, a rogue soldier throws himself back in Time to wreak havoc upon History and feed on the blood in the streets. He lands in the New World with the first white settlers. The Irrakwa try to stop him. And from two centuries ahead, the Law tries to follow him back... Dare to step inside. History is only one of the things you will never see in quite the same way again.

"What a trip! What a ride! We used to write about the past, present, or future. Then we got into alternate time-lines and reality-tinkerers (of which Ed Morris is a major contender if not the champ). And then there was this book! Wow! Reading There Was a Crooked Man is like listening to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Karl-Heinz Stockhausen, Charles Ives and Frank Zappa simultaneously, while indulging in a serious absinthe high and daydreaming about Howard Phillips Lovecraft.Morris is either a documented genius or a certifiable madman. I’ll put my money on the former." Richard A. Lupoff Author of Visions, Dreams, and The Emerald Cat KillerAbout the Author:
Edward Morris was born on Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina in 1975, and grew up in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania. He graduated Temple University in 1998 with a BA in Film, and lived in the Bay Area for a year before transplanting to Portland, Oregon: where he lives and works with his Muse, gallery artist and graduate art therapy student Serena Blossom Appel. Morris was nominated for the 2009 Rhysling Award and for the 2010 Bram Stoker; he was a 2005 nominee for the British Science Fiction Association Award, and was considered for the 2005 Sidewise Award for Alternate History.
