    Summary

    In telling the story of my father's life, it's impossible to separate fact from fiction, the man from the myth. The best I can do is to tell it the way he told me. It doesn't always make sense, and most of it never happened.

    But that's what kind of story this is.

    Or: On his deathbed, Erik Lensherr takes it upon himself to tell his greatest story. The story of his life.

    (Based on the movie "Big Fish".)

    Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.
    - Terry Pratchett

    John was in London, visiting his aunt during the summer hols. The year was 1959. She had suggested he go spend some time in the country.

And it was only a few hours out of the city by train, so he couldn’t see the harm...

    Summary

    “Shut up,” Danny says with a smile. “You’re the worst best friend ever.”

    “That would be true if I wasn’t about to give you a Kelly heads-up,” Steve murmurs, and Danny’s eyes fly open. “He’s at your two o’clock.”

    Sure enough, the most frustratingly enigmatic and attractive member of the NASA engineering team is pushing open the back gate of Mueller’s yard. He’s wearing khakis and brown leather shoes, but instead of his usual crisp, dark jacket, Chin Ho Kelly is wearing a soft, green polo shirt, sleeves tight around his biceps. Danny’s palms start sweating. He’s going to blame the heat.

    It's 1964, and Dr. Danny Williams has a mission to complete. Though, if he's honest with himself, he might actually have two.
