Discussion of a Decent Dream
by E. Curtis


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Dark Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

In the fall of 1789, on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales, a dense, 
persistent fog enshrouds the village of Ingleton. Shadowed spirits hide in the mist and bedevil the 
townsfolk, heralding a tragedy that has befallen one of their own.

Edmond continues to search for Alexandra, his fiancĂ©e, who disappeared the same night that the 
mist set upon their town. Presumed dead by all others, he visits Alexandra's empty grave, 
desperate for any hint of what has become of her. Weary from the sleepless nights on his quest, 
no longer able to stay awake, Edmond falls into a dream before her headstone and there obtains 
clues from Alexandra as to her whereabouts.

Haunted all the while by a malevolent spirit, Edmond follows the trail that Alexandra left for him 
and enters the underworld, only to learn that he has been there before, and in fact, quite often. 
But more, he discovers how he is to blame for Alexandra's disappearance.

A dark literary novel rich in imagery, Discussion of a Decent Dream unearths the consequences of 
a child's decision to surrender his heart in exchange for unholy power and transcendent knowledge.

Discussion of a Decent Dream is a Finalist in Britain's Wishing Self Book Awards in the Adult 
category.

EXCERPT

I had seen in dream that which appeared before me, a gloriously lined whirlwind of black. 
It exhibited itself as odd, twitchy, yet with cohesion, both beautiful and horrible at once, 
as if the core of this being eclipsed an otherwise unseen dawn. The vapor then solidified and took 
the form of a man, though its feet made no impression in the sand.

It warmed to me, expressing in that charred face such familiarity and delight. 
Even for my instinctive recoil, I made no real retreat, for I again wanted to hear it speak.
