""At the Borders of Sleep" has changed my perspective, to the extent that I now see the issue of this liminal state--half awake, half asleep--not as just my personal affliction, but as a much larger, all pervasive state, one that profoundly conditions all of literature, indeed all of 'consciousness.' This is the power of Peter Schwenger's book--after reading it one starts to see the liminal state, hypnagogia, everywhere. It becomes the subject of one's waking thoughts, and one's dreams." --Allan Stoekl, Penn State University
