Two novellas (long short stories) on the theme of evil in our society.
These are not simple moral fables, but multi-layered and intensive investigations into the nature and source and allure of evil. The first story concerns the efforts of a man to protect a family from interior strife and outside dangers (and all the while living in their garage without their knowledge). The second novella, "Kept", is a no holds barred thrill ride, a trip inside the strangest apartment block you're ever likely to come across. The denizens of the Strathcona Building are weird, bizarre, other-worldly. And they are under the protection of a caretaker who will go to any extreme to keep them safe from the world beyond the front door.
Both novellas have been optioned for adaptation into movies.
