Dreams and nightmares often give us glimpses into our true character; they can reveal our deepest anxieties and our most ambitious aspirations. Weird fiction has a rich history with dreamlike stories and nightmares that cross boundaries between the real and imaginary. Even H. P. Lovecraft endured many bizarre dreams from the early days of his youth that he then used as inspiration for some of his fiction and poetry. Now world-renowned weird fiction scholar and editor S. T. Joshi has assembled a new set of nightmares from some of the strongest minds in weird fiction today.

Featuring 100% original fiction focusing on the theme of dreams and nightmares by authors Ramsey Campbell, John Shirley, Caitlin R. Kiernan, John Langan, Simon Strantzas, Nancy Kilpatrick, W. H. Pugmire and many more.
