≈DREAMMAN≈ grew onto paperback in 2004 from experiences I once encountered by my overimaginative dreams. This was influenced by a condition called sleep apnoea where I would momentarily stop breathing and cut off the oxygen source to my brain would be cut off.
This abrupt lack of oxygen disorder resulted in the most vivid and exhaustive visions that were so complex, it’s a shame they could not be captured for all the world to see. And what was it like? Well … the first two pages of Chapter (1) should give you an idea.
All this happened about 15 years ago, and since then a CPAP machine, a stroke, a heart attack, two carotid artery operations, plus a double heart-bypass operation — all put-an-end to that. Now my dreams are very pedestrian. However, with a consistent blood supply I can now see in high-definition.
By using this experience as a means to create a story, I thought it would be a great opportunity to explore the next stage of dreaming. By allowing my dreamer to progress into a mystical plane and to travel in a trance then enter into other people’s dream states. Indeed, I can do a lot with that idea.
