"A journey through the chaos of LSD and the magic of dreams. We’ve
never read anything like this, the combination of the spiritual and
the murderous is incredible…" - www.book-reviewer.com
Shortlisted for the Luke Bitmead Bursary for New Writers, 2009
In 1968, Adrian Roy brutally murdered his young niece, Elspeth. In an act of unspeakable cruelty, he dosed her with LSD beforehand. Her body died, but something in the entheogenic drug propelled her soul into the land of sleep. She became a dream.
Meanwhile, in modern-day Cardiff, Oliver Ryan is unable to get a girlfriend. At the age of thirty-two he is still wetting the bed. Every few weeks he receives a visitation whilst his body is held prisoner by sleep paralysis. These nightmares mean that, for Ollie, his dreams are more real than his waking life.
Whilst asleep, he meets a woman in The Church of Shattered Hopes where everybody cries blood. On waking, he thinks no more about it. Until he meets her again…and again…
Just as we sleep each night and wake in Dream, dreams can wake in our world too. With the help of his cousin, Jen, the Welsh Shaman Eirian, and Amanda, an academic with an intelligent laugh, it is time to find Adrian Roy and enact a fitting revenge.
