A collection of short stories based entirely on dreams the author recorded in his journal. Over a period of almost three months he used techniques learned from various sources (Castaneda, Thelema, Occultism) to record his dreams. The author goes into detail about this process in the Introduction. Mixing fiction with the journal entries, intent on entertaining the reader as well as heightening awareness of the role of dreams in our lives, here is Dreams, Fiction and Me. A paranormal fiction suitable for all ages.
My Review: I liked this book. Its dreams that come straight from the author. These were some great dreams with some added touches and a lovely story has come from it.
You get to know how it all went about. The dreams, getting them written down, and what got thrown in along with it. Its a great story and the power of dreams aren't what most might think about. Dreams are a great thing to have and they can be awesome and powerful. The story is detailed but not over done to take away from it being a dream. Its written nicely and seems like your in the dream with the way its being told.
The author did a great job and I loved reading these dreams he had and how it turned into a great story to read, with a paranormal twist that I loved!
