Dream Sickness

Dream Sickness

posted Monday, 17 May 2010

Dream Sickness as a major theme and expression was first broached in my internet novels THE HAWLER and KLAXON CITY (2005/6) – and then again in my passworded internet novella WEIRDTONGUE (2007).  These fictions are currently being dismantled within hyperspace as part of the dismantlement of the whole Weirdmonger Wheel.

Dream Sickness now seems to be a prevalent theme besetting me, i.e. on TV, eg AMY’S CHOICE (the latest ‘Dr Who’ episode) and the remake of THE PRISONER on ITV (although I can’t remember Dream Sickness being a theme in the original THE PRISONER of the sixties) …. and I’m currently reading ‘MAN IN THE DARK’ (2008) by Paul Auster where I believe Dream Sickness is an ingredient.

But of course I could be wrong …. or dreaming.

Two dreams in literary or artistic or real-life interface without understanding which is a real dream and which is not are known as vennidictions or invennsions.

Maybe it is more difficult to dismantle dreams than is deemed possible.

  2. ‘Nemonymous Night’ duly has its due June publication date. It is my novel of 100,000 words: i.e. the first publication of a recent root-and-branch, hindsight-enhanced, experientially skilled-up, authorially ‘proven’ crystallisation from 300,000 words that were effectively drafted by me in 2005/6 as The Hawler and Klaxon City upon some now predominantly defunct blogs.

    One’s life, too, meanwhile, is privately and publicly under construction … until crystallised by death.
