This is two fictional short stories, each originally written in serial form across many days on DavidMegill.com. The first story, "Batman was Here," is broken into days and covers one week of an unusual relationship. The second story, "Otis," is broken into "floors" of a building and is a bit of a mystery, filled with odd characters and strange intersections.
Sometimes it's as if the life we've been seeking has managed to elude us. We wake up and ask ourselves, "Is this what life is all about?" Life has not turned out exactly the way we expected or hoped. We were promised certain things, by parents, culture, by church, and, as Christians believe, by Christ himself. Were we lied to? Did we misunderstand the promises? Scripture actually tells us the truth: that life is hidden, not always obvious.
"Insightful book from a leader on a journey"
What do Sherlock Holmes, Star Wars, A Christmas Carol, and Charlotte's Web have in common? Seven identical and profound themes. Actually we use only these four stories as examples of seven inescapable themes, found in whole or in part in every story in every medium from books to movies. I believe these themes are inescapable, not because our culture imposes them upon creators but because they reflect our deepest longings.
