The Mighty Theme

“To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme. No great and enduring volume can ever be written on the flea, though many there be who have tried it.”  

– Herman Melville, Moby-Dick, chapter 104

The “mighty” themes of my two novels (one completed, on Amazon, the other half-way through the final phase of editing) are:

Oncewhere Walked the Whale: What is a messiah?

Kirana (working title): What is fear?

Note: the two books, and thus their themes, are not related.
