This article is about the overall storyline of the novella Kissyman.
For information specific to the character refer to Kissyman (character)


Kissyman was orignally released in August 2007 as a short story in the Bloodcast Season 1 podcast feed. Author Scott Sigler was quoted as saying,
Kissyman is a story I was inspired to write after reading “Devil in a Blue Dress” by Walter Mosley. This is not the hard-science horror stuff that is my bread and butter, but rather a hard-boiled detective style take on an illegal immigrant from another era in America’s history. No science (unless you count psychology), but it does, indeed, get us back on the “lots and lots of violence” track.

Synopsis

Kissyman follows the dark and unsavory escapades of a former German Nazi as he tries to start his life anew in America. Set in the 1940's, the story not only details the history of the character but also the genesis of his unique name.
