That is, until he stops a gang of nightmarish oddities from killing a strange young woman with indigo eyes.
Dragged into the lands of the dreaming, he must come
to terms with his brutal past and his grim imagined
future in a land his body knows is real, but his mind
refuses to acknowledge.
Technology is embedded so deeply in our lives that it no longer feels separate. It's taken for granted, like breathing. Whatever can be imagined can be experienced, if not in the "real" world then somewhere else. Somewhere better. This is our new reality. We live inside our heads, in our dreams.
Come navigate a labyrinth of visions, illusions, nightmares, and fantasies. Explore the nascent genre of dreampunk with 22 of its finest authors as they examine and transform the dreamscapes that we call our lives. Get lost among the twists and turns, ascending to the upper limits of both wonder and dread.

Cliff Jones Jr. has several irons in the fire and more than a few bees in his
bonnet. He can’t be satisfied with just one life, as evidenced by
his degrees in linguistics, career in software development, and
obsession with dreampunk fiction. Therefore, he places a high
value on dreams and other alternative modes of experience.
He’s been happily married his entire adult life and is the father
of both a toddler and a teenager. Someday, he hopes to own a
cat. Find him online at CliffJonesJr.com

The Frontier: the line between civilization and the unknown where pioneers rely on a strong will and a dead eye not big city laws.
A land where the sweat you shed makes a place yours, whatever lines the government draws on a map; where everyone knows putting on a badge doesn't make a sheriff better than everyone else; where the divide between legend and reality isn't always where it seems.From aging settlers who miss the days when the town only had one street to decent folk who become gunslingers, from lawmen who find the solidity of the railroad is no protection from the devil to practical men who discover some monsters are more than heathen superstition, these nine tales will show you the West that was, that might have been, and might be again.
Each story in this anthology takes you along a different trail, but they share the grit and adventure that built the frontier.
