And Not Make Dreams Your Master

Parsina Press
Free sample

In the near future,
Dream broadcasting has become the latest entertainment medium. Wearing a
Dreamcap while you sleep enables broadcasters to send Dreams directly
into your unconscious mind, giving you an entertainment experience as
intensely real as though you'd been there yourself.
Wayne
Corrigan is a performer at Dramatic Dreams, one of the smaller broadcast
studios in the Los Angeles area. Janet Meyers, the lady Wayne's in love
with but is too shy to tell her, is another. A third colleague is Vince
Rondel, a genius of the art, a so-called Master Dreamer with enough
imagination to create and populate entire worlds within their minds and
project them to the audience. Vince is the superstar of the studio,
though he doesn't seem pretentious about it. He does have other
problems, though, like a domineering mother who's a religious zealot.

When
a mysterious malfunction occurs, Wayne is called on to enter a Dream
started by Vince. Once inside, he finds a situation run wild and people
enslaved by Vince, who seems bent on self-destruction. Now, tens of
thousands of people--including Janet, who's in the audience that
night--are in danger of dying or going insane unless Wayne can find some
way to wrest control of the Dream away from Vince.

And Not Make Dreams Your Master is a wild, inventive ride through the nightmare mind of a madman.

Book 1
NOW AN EXCITING NEW SERIES FROM NETFLIX • The shell that blew a hole in his chest was only the beginning in this “tour de force of genre-bending, a brilliantly realized exercise in science fiction.”—The New York Times Book Review

In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person’s consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or “sleeve”) making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

Ex-U.N. envoy Takeshi Kovacs has been killed before, but his last death was particularly painful. Dispatched one hundred eighty light-years from home, re-sleeved into a body in Bay City (formerly San Francisco, now with a rusted, dilapidated Golden Gate Bridge), Kovacs is thrown into the dark heart of a shady, far-reaching conspiracy that is vicious even by the standards of a society that treats “existence” as something that can be bought and sold.
