Something vital is missing from David Hero's comfortable, ordinary existence. One day is much like the next, simple, predictable...boring.

But the nights! Each night David Hero finds himself transported to a marvelous world where brave men and women battle terrible creatures possessed of cruel, dark powers.

Despite his fears, the Dreamworlds tempt David, drawing him farther and farther from the waking world. Here he finds noble warriors; beautiful, loving women; and challenges almost greater than he can imagine.

Lighthearted and easy to read. In this series Lumley takes Burroughs and Howard puts them in a blender and tosses them into a colorful Lovecraftian world. Even though this series revolves around dreams, reading it will leave you with fewer nightmares than the wonderful Necroscope series. Read full review
