Experience turn-of-the-last-century Lewes in a way you've never imagined. Some of it is true - and the rest of it might be. Who's to say for sure?
Lewes rocket scientist and science fiction author Jack Clemons gives us a Wild West thriller with an alternate history twist in The Outliers. Taking advantage of known gaps in the historical record, he imagines a familiar cast of characters transplanted to the East Coast, with a breakwater construction project underway and federal funds flowing into a sleepy town.
A visiting U.S. marshal and a charming ne'er do well are mysteriously at loggerheads with each other, with an innocent Nanticoke Indian youth named Sonny trapped in the middle. He's just trying to live his life, but will he make it to the end of the week?
