Simon Gregory Williams, known as “the beast” in Sesqua Valley, has been so corrupted by his reading and memorizing every existing edition of the Necronomicon that his tainted psyche cannot enter into Randolph Carter’s Dreamland. However, there is another dreamland, “the dreamland of witches,” into which Simon can slink because of his brilliance as an alchemist; and it is into that dreamland that Simon accompanies an innocent young woman in her quest for rare magick. Yet even Simon, who is so experienced in eldritch lore, has never been so confronted by such outlandish Lovecraftian lunacy as he finds in this dreamland of witchery.


In this fascinating excursion into the Lovecraftian fantasy/horror realm of Dreamland, two veteran authors of weird fiction have written a novel that is by turns horrific and poignant, with vibrant characters and a compelling narrative that carries the reader on from scene to scene to the novel’s cataclysmic conclusion.


David Barker is a widely published author and poet whose work has appeared in Fungi, Cyäegha, and Shoggoth.net. W. H. Pugmire is a longtime Lovecraftian author whose work has been gathered in many volumes, notably The Tangled Muse and An Ecstasy of Fear. The two authors have collaborated on The Revenant of Rebecca Pascal and In the Gulfs of Dream and Other Lovecraftian Tales.
