HASH(0x985a72dc) out of 5 stars The Dream Lover: Short Stories Feb. 21 2009
By Marcia Poole - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a disappointment. Being a really big fan I just look forward to all his new work. I purchased "The Dream Lover" thinking it was a new collection of writing. Yes, I knew that he had written a short story with that same title but I assumed he had reworked it. To open a book and find that I had read all the stories already was a major disappointment. It reeks of either needing money or just keeping his name out there. A very sad statement either way.
