Tony Ellis is correct.
Death's sentence refers to the fact that Tackman 
is in fact a fictional character.
However, there is another interpretation that
I think is also correct.
Note that Tackman (at least partly) lives out his fantasies.
Also note that the adults in Tackman's
world also (at least partly) live out their fantasies
(with drugs, costumes, etc.). I believe
Death's sentence also refers to the fact
that people don't lose their fantasy lives when they grow up.


Are fans of Fantasy more likely to have imaginary
friends as children?
