Reading like a serio-comic gothic thriller, "...never dream" deserves a more mainstream release. Taking the legend of vampires and werewolves and treating them like everyday occurances (if you suspend your need for reality every once in awhile), "...never dream" is hugely entertaining. Except for the obvious editing errors (one of the main characters somehow loses his Cockney accent about a third of the way into the story) and somewhat tedious and confusing point-of-veiw changes, this story is destined to become a cult classic.
Arthur Talon, a 700-year-old vampire, is troubled. An ancient book, once in his possession, has mysteriously disappeared. This book, a kind of an "owners manual" for the undead, is a revealing work that, in the wrong hands, is destined to destroy vampire-kind as we know it. And of course, it is about to fall into the wrong hands...the hands of a relatively young and cocky vampire who goes by the unlikely name of Lyle. This short but fast-paced story takes an at once serious and tongue-in-cheek view on the whole vampire genre. Who else would use Anne Rice novels as training manuals for modern-day bloodsuckers? Telling the story from the point of view of most of the main protagonists, the story becomes a bit diluted and trite...but worth plodding through to unearth the little nuggets of delight that are buried there.
Fresh and entertaining, "...never dream" is worth tracking down and owning.
