Bottomless Dreams is a fearlessly inventive story collection-a philosophical tapestry woven with imagination, wit, and guts. Each story presents a unique world, wildly different from the last. The stories range from the fantastic to the gritty, travelling through the past, present, and future. The writing is fierce yet playful, full of hooks and twists, and always riding the edge. The characters, flawed and human, navigate moments in their lives that alter them forever: an arctic explorer forced to choose between his life and the lives of his crewmates, a boy forced to confront a woman he believes is a witch, a brilliant street musician who grapples with addiction, a couple competing to conceive in an overpopulated future. The stories range in form from flash fiction to novella, and are set in backdrops that span not only the earth, but also the universe. This collection breaks rules, pushes limits, defies genres, spits in the face of social convention, peels away the limiting concepts that inundate our daily life, and dropkicks us down the path of liberation. It is a book that marks our time, but speaks beyond it. It is a book about love, imagination, and the power of the human spirit.

Wow! Books are my passion. My first memory is having Dr Seuss read to me as a child. Since then I've read at least a book a week for my entire life, and I now have a new favourite. The writing in Bottomless Dreams is so potent, it'll leave in a thoughtful trance for days after you finish reading it. Philosophy, humour, adventure, love, sex, drugs... it's all in here. I laughed and cried while reading it. Ryan Power has an unparalleled ability to create characters that live in the heart and mind of the reader, putting them in diverse yet visually rich settings, and throwing them into situations that'll leave you breathless. This book is a masterpiece. There is as much between the front and back cover as any book I have ever encountered. Ryan Power is as innovative and modern as they come, pushing the art of literature into the 21st century. He does things with his stories that I never imagined possible until I read Bottomless Dreams. It is hard to believe that it all came out of one mind. I hope this book spreads like wildfire and Power rises to be a voice of his generation.

YES! YES! YES! I love this Book. My mind has been bent, and shaped, and shattered to pure openess. I swear bottomless dreams is a philosophical catalyst masquerading as a pleasure read... regardless, it's wildly entertaining as it inspires new thought paths within the reader... so insightful! Fiction at its finest. I cannot stress enough that this book should be read by all.
