Everyone dreams though not everyone remembers their dreams. Nevertheless dreams hold an inexplicable fascination for all of us. And in this all-original volume of evocative tales some of today's most creative authors offer us such haunting dream experiences as:
- His nights were filled with true-dreams about people who'd died wrongful deaths, and all of them cried out for vengeance...
- While trying to overcome his creative block, a writer is offered a dream treasure beyond imagining...
- As a dream guide she has led many people through the perils of their dreams to happy conclusions, but can she do the same for herself?
- Can one young man's dreams save the world?
These are just a few of the provocative stories that will either leave you eager to explore the land of dreams on your own - or afraid to close your eyes....
