Diogenes Ra, Joseph Lamere's half-fictional "literary archaeologist," is back, and he's in some trouble. He may or may not have shot his father, the fictional private eye Seamus the Shamus, in a bit of trans-temporal malfeasance. But the cross dimensional crisis doesn't end there. Ra's best friend is a writer looking to turn his story into Hollywood gold. Things get complicated when Ra loses the famous narrator of a novel on every high school teacher's Required Reading list. A mixture of fantasy as it's never been written and noir and mystery, Dramatis Personae: Past Tense takes Diogenes Ra to places he's never been and that he may never return from.
