In The DreamingIn The Dreaming by Terrance Foxxe
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book Blurb:
Terrance Foxxe’s In The Dreaming is a collection of short stories bridged together by a larger narrative, a mosaic novel unlike any other.

“I thought this novel would work out well if I could find the perfect vehicle to drive my character's interactions. Would a mental ward patient do?"

Foxxe's unique novel offers a wide variety of stories to suit any tastes. From Native American legend to urban detective. Science fiction, magic and love, alongside vampires, barbarians, presidents, elves, and (walking talking) toys. Horror with the hope. A little something for everyone.

My review:
From what I understand this author had a collection of short stories and decided to link them by adding a story on top of them. It does work in this case.

The stories in the collection are bizarre, sometimes evil, most often dark, and occasionally sweet. I'm generally not a fan of short stories, but this was done in quite a unique and interesting way.
