Sometimes it becomes a way of life to be reluctant about meeting relations who we do not seem to gel in with. However, when magic brings torn relations together, it becomes really interesting. Wesley Cris discusses the process of creation fueled by anger which instills magic in an inanimate. The short “The Typewriter” story is really interesting because for me it describes the desperation of a writer who has the power to imagine and create beautiful moments. Anger and hate directs the mind of Melisa towards creating magic in her words which is beautiful and interesting at the same time.I would certainly like to read more from Wesley Cris and encourage readers to taste the brilliance that his stories entail.
Melisa dreams of being an author just like her grandfather. To help her pursue this dream her Grandfather allows her to use his old typewriter, while she's staying with him. Even though she would much rather use a computer, Melisa reluctantly agrees to use the typewriter, but this is no ordinary typewriter, it has the ability to think for itself and take control of the person using it. In not very long Melisa soon finds herself The Typewriter's Slave. In order to stop The Typewriter, Melisa must now discover The Typewriter's secrets, as well as secrets that she's been hiding from herself. If you enjoy books about evil machines, brave kids, psychological horror, and a dark sense of humor, you're sure to love this book.
