and so we cross paths yet again Mr Keller.

i must say, you have a gift of telling stories. i liked the story a lot. the characterization was done very well. Zeek/ Evil Eye came out quite distinctly. i somehow was able to anticipate the ending though. it was very "bollywood" (Indian Cinema in case you are not aware).

the set description was done very well. loved the conversation between Zeek and the Pastor.

one thing though, and i think this is simply due to watching a lot of clint eastwood films, the final faceoff between the two was a tad slow. it could have picked up pace after the first shot.

but overall, I Loved It.

    I am not sure if this really counts for a short story. pardon its length and it is a decent read. the concept of time-travel and search of god was brought together beautifully. kudos. a brilliant concept. the narration was also very gripping except a few parts when the protagonist drifts into thoughts of Jesse. a few things i observed. the story starts with a regret expressed... read
