At only 300 copies, and with a huge demand, this item is going to sell out fast. In a used book store, Thomas Abbey, an avid fan of Marshall France, a deceased writer of unique children’s books, has a chance encounter with Saxony Gardner, another enthusiast of that reclusive man. Together, they set out to the town of Galen, to meet Anna France, the writer’s daughter, in order to obtain her permission to write Marshall France’s biography. Prepared for rejection, they are warmly welcomed and settle into the community and their literary endeavor. However, they find an uncanny resemblance between the town of Galen and its inhabitants, and the literary world of their idol. Figures from Marshall France’s books are alive in Galen, and Thomas and Saxony begin to question if the books were patterned onto Galen, or if the writer’s magic created Galen. Equally disturbing is Thomas’ role as biographer, who appears to create reality by his writing, and begins to question the motives of Anna and the inhabitants of Galen. Events reach a crisis point when Thomas’ biography reaches the time of Marshall France’s arrival in Galen.
