Perchance to Dream - ed. Denise Little

Read for the 2010 TBR Reading Lite Reading Challenge.

This short story collection centers around dreams – either real or figurative. It’s made up of mostly fantasy stories, with a few scifi stories thrown in for good measure.

My favorites included “Dreamfisher” – an interesting idea born from a throwaway comment in Herodotus’ Histories; “Marty Plot’s Rule for Success” – an absurdly funny look at the great success of a man whose greatest skill is napping; and “Shelter” – a fascinating look at the consequences of tapping the human collective subconscious.

There’s some interesting variety in the stories ranging from high fantasy to borderline horror. Definitely a fun read across an interesting subject.
