5 books on Bruce Wayne’s bedside table [batman]

1. The Art of War by Sun-Tzu. (Because Gotham is a war, and Batman is both general and army.)

2. Walks Through Lost Gotham: A Journey Into the Heart of Historic Gotham by Gordon Fraby. (Instructive as well as interesting, although he always has strange dreams afterward, full of buildings with their foundations torn out and streets that are only partly there.)

3. Nightwatch by Terry Pratchett. (He likes Vimes, although he thinks Vimes would arrest him on principle. But then a Gotham that had Vimes wouldn’t need Batman.)

4. Final Harvest by Emily Dickinson. (She writes kindly of death, and there are nights—mornings—when he needs that comfort, however hollow it may be.)

5. The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead by Max Brooks. (It never hurts to be prepared.)
