Alan A. Winter - Wolf (with Herbert J. Stern)
Announcing the upcoming publication (mid-February 2020) coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Nazi Party.
"Wolf" challenges the historical view that Adolf Hitler was subhuman or even a "black hole." That he was a non-person. While most recent historians paint this picture of him, they it not be further from the truth. While it does not change the ultimate horrors that Hitler perpetrated as one of the worst villians in all of history, "Wolf" paints a different picture of the man in private that must be understood, especially in today's complicated environment. Seen through the eyes of the man in the bed next Hitler in a mental hospital at the end of the Great War, "Wolf" will by turns offer many surprises to even those most knowledgable about his era. https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Wolf/Herbert-J-Stern/9781510751088

This historical fiction is based on a true story and extensive research. Saturday was taken captive in Nigeria in 1767, brought to Saint-Domingue, secretly gained an education, and became the personal attendant to my grandmother. When the Haitian Revolution exploded in 1791, he was unable to save Grandmother Catherine but took her two boys to Charleston where he raised them as his own children. Later he got caught up in the Vesey Conspiracy and fled to Cuba where he gained his freedom. Through the roller-coaster that was his life he held on to his love for a voodoo priestess, known generally as The Witch Woman. You’ll laugh and cry at his incredible will to survive and become a free man.

Lewis McIntyre - The Eagle and the Dragon
A fictional account of the first Roman diplomatic mission to China, based loosely on an actual Roman mission to China in 166AD, in which the emperors already knew each other by name... so obviously not the first. That first mission is lost to history, but my fictional account adheres closely to the historical facts.... and like most first missions, nothing goes right!
Take an epic journey by sea and land through all the major empires of Eurasia at the dawn of the Second Century AD. There is action, adventure, skullduggery, pirates, three love stories... and oh, yes, camels! Don't forget the camels!
I am very excited that Fiction River just released their anthology Hard Choices. My thriller short story, Payback is in the anthology.
