Overview

Dark Fantasy/Horror

If a man is unable to dream, can insanity be far behind?

Edward Grimm is a talented wood carver living in 18th century Germany. He has made a fine living for himself carving carousel horses for royalty, but his heart and soul are dark. Grimm has never been able to dream, and loathes those who can. His anger at God for denying him this simple pleasure fuels jealousy and hate toward his little nephew who tells Grimm all of his fantastic dreams. Driven insane by this venom, Grimm seeks out the assistance of mysterious gypsy wanderers who give him the secret of capturing his nephew's dreams.

Through the use of forbidden magic, Grimm seals his nephew in the most exquisite wood grain and places him upon a carousel. There, Grimm waits as his nephew's dreams come to visit and find out why he hasn't called upon them. Dream after dream is captured by Grimm, sealed in wood, and placed upon the carousel for his personal pleasure. If he can't have his own dreams, he shall have those of others.

He also covets the daughter of the chieftain, a woman just as dark in the heart as he. Once he makes Elena his wife, all his wishes seem to come true, but his web of hate, jealousy and deceit set into motion the makings of his own demise.

Editorial Reviews

Affaire de Coeur
Dream Thieves evokes the feeling of Lovecraftian dark fantasy. Steven Lee Climer's words are hauntingly poetic, his plot masterful, and his imagination seemingly unbounded.
FrightNet
Dream Thieves is a fast paced book with urks and turns you don't see coming. Delightful and refreshing, it's something new to chalk up on the list of must-read's."
Lisa DuMond
Climer's novel is genuine horror, told in an almost baroque style that occasionally lulls the reader into a false sense of security as the charming Bavarian landscape flows by. And yanks you back with a claw to the throat. At times, the events are so disturbing, pulling away seems the only decent action.
William Hughes
...Dream Thieves is a fine first novel....The book's fantastic premise becomes utterly believable, mainly because Grimm himself -- with all his anger, his ambition, his petty jealousies and grand hopes -- is so convincingly drawn. Climer seems to have sensed from the outset that the character of Grimm was the single most important aspect of the book, and he deftly delivers a thorough, thoughtful portrait of the man.

Grimm's magical dabbling into the lives and dreams of others makes for some unique situations, and Climer exploits them in good fashion, creating some bizarre dream-creatures along the way. This one's quite imaginative.... -- Dread: a Magazine of the Uncanny and Grotesque
