“Is he real? Does he have free will? Whom should he share his discovery with, if he dare share it at all? Are the author’s intentions noble or wicked? Can Elisha make contact with his creator and if so, should he? And most troubling of all, why do the people he crosses paths with seem to meet such unfortunate ends?” --Bruce Warren Heydt

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Bruce Warren Heydt’s new book explores what it would be like to be nothing more than a character in a book.

For those who have ever wondered what it would be like to be a character in a novel, bookseller Elisha Bookbinder is about to discover the answer to that very question. What once seemed like nothing more than a rhetorical question quickly becomes reality for this ironically named merchandiser. Elisha Bookbinder has become convinced that he and everyone he has ever met are really characters in a fictional tale being crafted by an unseen author.

At first, he finds his epiphany deeply disturbing. As Elisha comes to grips with his startling new worldview, he wrestles with its weighty implications. He does not know if he is real or even has free will. He does not know if his author’s intentions are noble or wicked. As Elisha searches for understanding and purpose, his questions and the answers for those questions turn out to be not so different from those of real people living in the real world.
