Overview

Fueled by breakthroughs in technology and neuroscience, the terminally ill, while in an induced slumber, in a pain-free, medically supervised environment, can literally dream their lives away in preprogrammed situations of their choosing, controlled by a super computer.

The well-meaning creators of computer generated dreaming plan to conquer the stigma of death by making its wonders available to all, so people can die in vivid, pre-programmed dream surroundings, reliving blissful moments from their past.

All goes according to plan until the dream of DreamLand is shattered by the profit-seeking backer of the project who plans to make the miracle of programmed dreaming into the ultimate theme park. For the price of admission, anyone can participate in great moments from sports or history, or enjoy recreated fantasies of their choosing. Children can become a part of their favorite fairy tale.

About the Author

Ken Reeth was a colorful and creative disc jockey well known to rock music fans as Brother Love. Brother Love's Underground was a radio show in the late-60's that was dedicated to psychedelic and underground rock music. It originated from Pittsburgh radio station WAMO-FM, with Reeth being its psychedelic DJ and emcee. It was also aired, via tape, on Dynamic Broadcasting which owned WILD-AM in Boston, WUFO-AM in Buffalo and WOAH in Miami. Ken was one of the first DJ's to introduce listeners to Iron Butterfly, Country Joe and the Fish, Mothers of Invention, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Vanilla Fudge, and others.

Reeth also wrote the lyrics to dozens of recorded songs, including the Rockabilly Hall of Fame classics, Rockin Billy, Endless Love and Pity Me, featured in the international award winning film, "The Exiles". Additionally he served on the Board of Directors of the Academy of Country Music and garnered several CLIO awards for writing and producing radio commercials.


Matthew J. Pallamary's historical novel Land Without Evil received rave reviews, and was adapted into a multimedia aerial extravaganza, directed by Sarah Agent Red Johnston and performed by acrobatic troupe, Sky Candy to sold out audiences. The making of the show, filmed as a PBS episode of Arts in Context, garnered an EMMY nomination.

His memoir Spirit Matters, detailing his journeys from Boston's concrete jungle to the jungles of Peru, took top honors in the San Diego Book Awards' Spiritual Book Category, and was an Award-Winning Finalist in the National Best Book Awards. It was also released as an audio book, narrated by the author. Originally from Dorchester Massachusetts, Pallamary has lived in San Diego for the past 35 years.
