Hes sold half a million books and counting, including the bestselling Door Within Trilogy. If youre a fan of Batsons fiction, youll love Law of the Land.About Batsons Short Fiction: I wrote these stories for my students (Batson has taught middle school Reading & English for 22 years) long before the novels. I needed good, high interest stories to supplement the curriculum, so I wrote my own. Little did I expect that students would become so fond of the stories. I began to infuse each tale with cues for reading comprehension strategies (predicting, inferring, connecting, etc.), literary elements (plot, character, setting, etc.), and writing techniques (the 6+1 traits, figures of speech, suspense tactics, etc)…all to allow dozens of teachable moments in each story. For middle or high school teachers who purchase these short stories, feel free to print a class set for your kids. Enjoy! --Wayne Thomas Batson
