Join Captain Samuel McCord with his new bride, Empress Meilori Shinseen, on a one of a kind world cruise
aboard the sky-steamboat, Xanadu, with Mark Twain, 12 year old Nikola Tesla, revenant Benjamin Franklin, the all-too-alive Abraham Lincoln
(seeking revenge for the death of his wife at the infamous Ford's theater),
General William Tecumseh Sherman,
furious over McCord's destruction of his troops before their march through Georgia
and the Ranger's interference in the peace treaty establishing the Great Sioux Nation,
disgraced former President Andrew Johnson,
impeached upon suspicion of his part in the attempted assassination of Lincoln,
Thomas Edison, eager to spot another invention which he can steal and claim for himself,
Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer, fuming at being denied glory and promotion by the inviolate borders of the Great Sioux Nation,
and a host of other dignitaries such as
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Ada Byron, John B. Stetson -- yes, that one
Rear Admiral David Farragut,
who hates McCord for humiliating him by keeping him out of the French Quarter in 1862 ...
To which Mark Twain drawls, "Captain Sam, ain't there one person on this here boat who don't hate you?"
"Well, Meilori loves me."
Meilori's sphinx eyes sparkles as she murmurs, "Sometimes."
Welcome to my latest WIP (just on page 5).
I am having such fun. Wish me luck.
