Ashley Joanna “Ash” Williams is an idiot and a hero. But mostly an idiot. For over 35 years, he’s battled the deadites, evil demons hellbent on the destruction of humankind.
Ash’s first encounter with deadites happened when he and his girlfriend, Linda, were vacationing in a cabin in Morristown, Tennessee. It seems an archaeologist had come to the cabin before the couple to translate and study his latest find: Necronomicon ex Mortis, The Book of the Dead. Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, this ancient Sumerian text contained bizarre burial rites, funerary incantations, and demon resurrection passages. It was never meant for the world of the living. The book awoke something dark in the forest. First, it took Linda. Then it came for Ash.
It got into his hand and went bad, so Ash lopped it off at the wrist. Then it came back—big time. With the help of the archeologist’s daughter, Ash opened a portal through time and space which destroyed the evil. As a side effect, the portal also deposited Ash in 14th-century medieval England.
Again, Ash (reluctantly) battled the forces of darkness, this time with the help of an army of knights. Once defeated, Ash used another incantation to return home.
Of course, that wasn’t the end of the deadites…
