Washington has fallen! Legions of 'grays' -- dead soldiers reanimated on the battlefield and pressed back into service of the Southern Cause -- have pushed the lines as far north as the Ohio River. Lincoln has moved the government of the United States to New York City. He needs to stop the juggernaught of the Southern undead 'abominations' or the North will ultimately fall. But Allan Pinkerton, his head of security, has a plan... The Northern newspapers are heralding Braxton Wright as the Hero of Parkersburg, but the engineer who designed the Northern walking monitors -- Tall Guns -- knows the truth. He had acted more out of panic than heroism and is certain he has gotten his best best friend, physician Lawrence Hancock, killed in the cold waters of the Ohio as a result. What he would like is to be forgotten. But at Pinkerton's urging, Lincoln personally sends Braxton on a mission aboard Gen. Sherman's airship deep into Southern territory. He will find Hattie Lawton, the woman who is the North's most capable spy, and with her must stop the undead of the South from rising again!

About the Author
Tracy Hickman

Tracy Hickman was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from Provo High School in 1974 where his major interests were in Drama, music and Air Force JROTC. He served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) in Hawaii and Indonesia. As a result, Tracy can still speak conversational Indonesian and occasionally basis his magical phrases on that language. Tracy married his high school sweetheart, Laura Curtis, within four months of his returning to the United States. They have been married ever since and are the parents of four children.

Tracy has worked as a supermarket stockboy, a movie projectionist, a theater manager, a glass worker, a television assistant director, and a drill press operator in a genealogy center. It was in 1981 -- between jobs and wanting to buy shoes for his children -- that he approached TSR about buying two of his modules . . . and ended up with a job instead. That job lead to his association with Margaret Weis and their first publication together: the Dragonlance Chronicles.

Since that time in 1985, they have jointly authored over forty book titles. Tracy's first two solo novels, "Requiem of Stars" and "The Immortals" were published in the spring of 1996. More recently, Tracy and his wife Laura have been able to fulfill a long-time dream; they once again are writing together. Their first joint novel, MYSTIC WARRIOR, was published in 2004 and they look forward to a long and exciting career together.

Tracy remains highly active in his church and pursues a number of hobbies including guitar, singing, piano, models, DVD and Bluray movies (although he STILL maintains that HD-DVD was a better format), computer games, television production and animation. He loves to read biographies, histories and popular science books.

Tracy currently resides with his wife in South Jordan, Utah.
