stories within the story


INTRO

The easy town books are full of stories. Not just the main stories but also stories within the story and even untold stories.

A story within the story can have different sources.

For example:
A teacher goes on a journey is a background story about how Steven and Robin came to the town project.
Friends, on the other hand, is a story that happens parallel to the main story, but none of the main characters knows anything about it.
Princess Marlana and her guards in black is a fairy tale retold by Hachiro, the project’s head designer.
A lake of tears is a tale to help one of the main characters in a rough moment.

And then there are Jack’s movies.
Jack is one of the main characters in the book series and a famous actor.
Some of his movies are just mentioned in the easy town story, some are recounted by him, like Breaking the Cycle, and in the case of The Invention of Evil, Jack and Alice watch his movie together.

Jack’s complete movie list will be published with book 4/1, building, and it’s possible that by then more of his movies will have entered the story.

As for the untold stories, the story of Dunya Shirinova is one of my favourites, and I’m really curious to see whether her story will be told one day.
