Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Anonymous Reviewer
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. 5 Stars!
Richard Wright
I used to believe that Dark Fantasy was just another name for horror, set in strange and blurry worlds. Steven Lee Climer redefined my perception of the genre with Dream Thieves. Dream Thieves earned Climer a nomination for best first novel in 1998, from the International Horror Guild, and it's a shame he missed out. If he can continue to produce material this inventively satisfying though, then I'm sure he hasn't long to wait before some serious recognition falls his way.
