THE DREAMS

Editor’s First Look – Slice of Life Mixed with Japanese Folklore

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Sep 16, 2017: I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when I started The Dreams, but I was pleasantly surprised by a story that is half a slice of life/coming of age tale of a young woman going to college and meeting someone special, and half Japanese fairy tale, a story of a young woman in a small village who begins befriending a strange, magical young man she’s been told not to speak to.

The author does a good job of drawing in the reader into her dual worlds, and I found myself interested in both stories, wondering where they would go. What starts off as two light and interesting tales, however, quickly pick up some dark undercurrents, which makes them both even more compelling.

I don’t want to say much more about either of the stories because I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but for anyone fond of coming of age/slice of life stories or Japanese folklore, I’d definitely recommend this one for you.

AVAILABLE DARKNESS

Editor’s First Impression

By Linda Schoales, editor

Apr 1, 2010: Prologue and first chapter are solid. There’s lots of tension. Navigation is via the Table of Contents page.

SUPERNATURAL FAIRY TALES BLOGAZINE

Editor’s First Impression

By Linda Schoales, editor

Dec 26, 2009: The main page currently has the first part of a Japanese-flavoured fairy tale. The writing looks solid so far. The links to the other stories are on the right side of the screen, but you need to scroll down a bit to find them.
