A Collection of Dreamscapes by Christina Sng

In A Collection of Dreamscapes, Christina Sng brings to life dark mythologies, fairy tales, a league of monsters, and a journey into the unfathomable depths of the human heart. This widely lauded follow-up to Sng's Bram Stoker award-winning volume, A Collection of Nightmares, has been described by reviewers as "a captivating collection that is not to be missed", "immersive, creepy, accessible", "a dream, dark and fantastic", "haunting, stunning, and poignant", and "a poetry collection every public library should own".

Venture inside Brian James Freeman's MIDNIGHT UNDER THE BIG TOP where your wide eyes and pounding heart will discover:

• the world's grandest tales of murder, madness, and magic set in and around the circus by renowned storytellers such as Stephen King, Joe Hill, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Neil Gaiman, Kelley Armstrong, Robert McCammon, Tananarive Due, Lisa Morton, Heather Graham, Richard Chizmar, Billy Chizmar, Amanda C.
