Item description for Map of Dreams by Gordon Van Gelder M. Rickert...

Set in a reality where nightmares do not fade upon waking, this anthology skims along the surface of life and dips just beneath, revealing the hidden machinations that fuel dreams. These underlying myths and fantasies exist not as musty old stories but as ancient truths that have come to illuminate the modern human condition. The title story touches on themes of grief, redemption, and time travel; "Cold Fire" ventures into love and obsession; and "Peace on Suburbia" introduces readers to a Christmas with an entirely different kind of savior. These and 13 other tales are framed by four interludes---Dreams, Nightmares, Waking, and Rising---that guide readers through a world that is at once familiar and eerily off-kilter.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Map of Dreams?

Touching  Aug 29, 2008
The stories in Map of Dreams are simply touching. Which is to say that every single story ends with a combination of words that leaves you feeling some kind of emotion. For me, the emotions these stories induce were never easily labeled, but maybe that is just my limited vocabulary.

M. Rickert touches life though the genre of fantasy. In her stories you can find all of the things that make life so wonderful and so awful. She mixes both tragedy and hope, touching what it is to lose and to love. I don't mean to sound so cheesy, but she really does touch the very fabric of human existence.

And the best part is that she is only getting better with time. All of the new stories I have read from her have been nothing short of wonderful.

M. Rickert is indeed a "find".
Stories you will not forget easily  Jul 12, 2008
M. Rickert's first collection, Map of Dreams, is beautiful, magical, real, incantatory, evocative, lush, poetic, full of narrative momentum and characters and situations that you will not easily forget. There is a generous amount of heart and sympathy in these stories, and a wealth of wisdom. Don't read this book at your own risk.
