About this title


Theodore Roosevelt: president, naturalist, explorer, author, cowboy, police commissioner, deputy marshal, soldier, taxidermist, ornithologist, and boxer. Everyone knows about that.
But how about vampire hunter?
Or African king?
Or Jack the Ripper's nemesis?
Or World War I doughboy?
Mike Resnick (the most-awarded short story writer in science fiction history, according to Locus) has been the biographer of these other Teddy Roosevelts for almost two decades. Here you will find a familiar Roosevelt, but in unfamiliar surroundings stalking a vampire through the streets of New York, or a crazed killer down the back alleys of Whitechapel, coming face-to-face with the devastation of 20th Century warfare, waging an early battle for women's suffrage, applying all his skills to bring American democracy to the untamed African wilderness, or coming face-to-face with one of H. G. Wells' Martian invaders in the swamps of Cuba.
And, as Winston Churchill said of the Arthurian legends, if these stories aren't true, then they should have been.

From Publishers Weekly:

Comprising seven of Resnick's alternate historical tales of Theodore Roosevelt, this slim collection easily takes the prize for narrow selection criteria. The best-known story is Bully! nominated for multiple awards following its 1991 publication, while the two most entertaining are arguably the two most recently written: 2001's Redchapel and 2007's Two Hunters in Manhattan, which respectively pit Roosevelt against Jack the Ripper and a vampiric New York crime lord. The Bull Moose at Bay, Bully! and Over There all find Roosevelt in futile and rather unflattering opposition to the forces of history, and The Light That Blinds, the Claws That Catch serves as an oddly ambivalent coda. A choppy appendix of Roosevelt facts and anecdotes largely copies from the smoother, more concisely biographical introduction. Those with special interest in Roosevelt or Resnick (Santiago) will find the collection well packaged, but for general readers, there isn't enough material to justify the high price. (Feb.)
