From the Editor

Set in New York City at the turn of the millennium, The Man of Legends transpires in a forty-eight-hour span that flies along at a breakneck speed. It’s an epic, fast-paced blending of adventure, romance, and international conspiracy about an enigmatic man who has profoundly altered two thousand years of human history.

The book imagines one of the great untold legends through a kaleidoscope of fictional first-person-eyewitness accounts. Gathered and interwoven by an ambitious journalist who herself becomes a principal character in the drama, these individual stories chronicle a deeply felt search for redemption through tragic loss, heartfelt love, and the title character’s quest to discover his true mission in the world despite the ancient curse that binds him.

I was already a third of the way through devouring The Man of Legends before the author’s name rang a bell and I realized I was reading a new novel from the creator of the original V series, as well as The Bionic Woman, The Incredible Hulk, and the TV adaptation of Alien Nation. Given Johnson’s science-fiction pedigree, I admit that I turned to the rest of the book with even higher hopes. And it exceeded them, culminating in a raucous climax that left me wanting to read the book all over again.

Readers looking for an adventurous, addictive escape—with the high stakes of The Da Vinci Code and the page-turning blend of history and the supernatural of The Einstein Prophecy—need look no further.

Review

“Johnson takes a big gamble by telling such a complex tale invoking every genre imaginable while juggling distinct and deep characterizations. The bet pays off, resulting in a story that will be popular with book clubs and fun to discuss.” Associated Press

“Kenneth Johnson has once again created a timeless tale that offers up adventure, suspense and romance all wrapped up tightly in a supernatural mystery.” Suspense Magazine
