Tales of Real And Dream Worlds Horror Book Review
Featured Book Review: Darkbound

Tales of Real and Dream Worlds is fantasy fiction in the tradition of Richard Matheson, Rod Serling and H.G. Wells. The surreal, the unreal, and the all-too-real intertwine in these nine great short stories. We step out of the workaday world and see reality in a slightly different light here. At certain junctures we face horror, in the form of living carnivores that had not seemed to be alive before, or in bizarre telephone calls in the night from imperiled strangers, or in a career path available only in a future society.
We visit the impoverished Rutherford family, who become entangled in the 1938 War of the Worlds radio hoax. Elsewhere a billionaire has some remarkable trouble involving a pair of restless sculptures in his art hoard. We experience the otherworldly day in the life of a honey bee. There is an odd tale called Dumpster of the Mind. And then there is The Jingle, a commercial ditty you will not be able to get out of your head. Ever.
This is fiction that entertains and stimulates the mind. There are some dark passages, but only rare moments of violent imagery. The stories are not unduly cluttered with profanity. The book is intended for a general audience over 16 years of age.
Once you have read them you will never forget—TALES OF REAL AND DREAM WORLDS!
