About this ebook

"I love these stories. They are teeming with inventive ideas about a future where technology has increased our isolation, but we still strive for connection." - J Moira
About the collection:

Lovers of shows such as Black Mirror, The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, will enjoy Mark Le Dain’s dark satirical collection of stories, Dreamtime.

Dreamtime is a collection of 20 tales set in the near future where a person’s life is monitored, influenced, and sometimes even crafted by the technology we both love and hate.

From stories of people condemned to live within their carbon footprint and clones that expand the empires of only the wealthy (duplicating both their good traits and bad), to stories of a future where a market exists for practically anything, including your life – Mark Le Dain’s disturbing “slices of life” have the potential to awaken the technophobe in all of us.
