Mixon includes dozens of examples from the literary canon along with a step-by-step analysis of six brilliant stories from which their genres sprang, as well as discussing the grand art of storytelling, from character arc/narrative arc to three-dimensional graphing, from hunting the ghost tiger to the Tao of theme.
