GENRE: HISTORIC FANTASY / HORROR
THIS THING OF DARKNESS
by Allan Batchelder
History tells us that William Shakespeare died in April of 1616.
Or did he?
What if the “William Kemp” who set sail from England for the New World in April of 1619 was actually the bard in disguise?
How would he adjust to life in the Virginia Colony? How would he interact with the Powhatans?
And what if he was forced to do battle with a monster out of legend?
This is the story of Shakespeare’s second life.
