A wonderful exploration of darkness and practicality Aug 16, 2004
If you've ever wondered how bad it would be to *really* have all those supernatural powers people brag about having, then you need to sit beside C. S. and hear how he tells it. This book is not just wonderfully written, but it is also fresh with its own world view. And when things seem a bit strange - you will find the colourful and vividly dark images conjured up in this text pawing at the back of your mind with their own explanation.
A Season of Strange Dreams Mar 31, 2003
C.S.Thompson summons up a darkly poetic masterpiece in A Season of Strange Dreams. Enter the life of Jim Rankin, the Nightwalker, who slips between the fabric of the dark city of Nottamun and the blackness of a dreamworld known as the Fringe. As the border of the two mysterious worlds loses definition, the Nightwalker travels through violence, memories and self-judgement to find a way to salvation. Thompson's writing is brilliant. The imagery of his words is equal to the paintings of H.R.Giger; horrible, cruel and seductive. If you enjoyed Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, read A Season of Strange Dreams.
