The Dissident is a novella about a rural Kentucky town and a recent visitor who seems to have supernatural powers.
It's Christmas time in Pinehurst, Kentucky. The town is preparing for the annual Christmas festival when an unexpected visitor arrives, saving a child who falls into the river. He seems to have some remarkable abilities, including stretching wood and multiplying food. Everyone in town sees him differently, from the sheriff who believes he's an escaped parolee, to his landlady who sees a resemblance to her late husband. Is he a Christmas miracle, an alien, or just a trouble maker?
James Bishop's new novella is a deep look into how we view ourselves, others around us, and reality itself.
