Is Galen Monroe a man on a divine mission, or simply a mentally deranged criminal? He is a homeless junkie whose domicile of choice is a cardboard box in an East Dallas alley. His requirements for living are as basic as any human that ever existed on earth: food and shelter, comfort, and amusement. He fulfills these needs with trashcan treasures, stolen electronics, and heroin.
But Galen also has qualities that reach into the spiritual dimension. He discovers that he has supernatural gifts, including remote viewing and the ability to interact with transcendental beings, from guardian angels to ancient aliens. When Quid the Runt invades the limited confines of his box, he turns Galen’s world upside down with his talk of eternal truths, heaven and hell, and secret missions.
If the cops and shrinks would just leave him alone, he could slip into something more comfortable – like death. The county jail doctors diagnose him as obsessive/compulsive, paranoid, and schizophrenic. Regardless, Galen knows that he is merely orderly, cautious, and gifted in a way that others could never understand. Predictably, the mental health and law enforcement communities are determined to have him permanently locked away.
Galen’s life and the lives of all who encounter him are changed forever. In some other time and place, he might have been considered a holy man. How should we deal with those who evidently were created with faulty wiring?
