To sleep, perchance to dream. We don't always remember our dreams when we sleep, but when we do... Five major fantasy authors convey the now-wakeful reader into worlds created by those who sleep intensely if not necessarily quietly, the Book of Dreams. As opposed to much of fantasy where a suspension of disbelief is mandatory from the start, these tales start quite reasonably enough in our current world view but draw the protagonist into a rather different sphere. From official release/information:
Product Description: Perchance to dream... To dream is to enter inner worlds of terror and revelation, to look the collective unconscious in the face. In this ground-breaking anthology, five modern masters of the fantastic conjure especially potent encounters with the stuff of the sleeping mind, unveiling dark hints about who (or what) we truly are, about our uncertain relationships with the waking world. The stories in The Book of Dreams are bold ventures into the kingdom of Morpheus, upon which individual destinies crucially depend--or perhaps the destiny of the entire human species.
