This is the first in a series of linked Urban Fables. Each story stands on its own and is being released as a single e-book. But they all connect in a much larger meta-narrative. Much like our lives.
When we meet the boy, he's imprisoned by curtains, surrounded by vegetables, lost on his bicycle, caught by plums. Oh yes, the first of many stories about the singular childhood of the little boy in a big room. Not quite a Gargoyle, not yet a Poet, he waits each night for his vegetable gruel. Sometimes a room is just too big.
All my Urban Fables connect with the "Newfie Bullet" trilogy.
