There are the stories we never tell anyone. The ones we keep deep in the recesses of our minds. Dreams we create out of the darkness in which we live in. Sometimes the dreams can be so profound, so powerful, they manifest into reality. Sometimes we survive to tell the tale.
Take a deep breath, and dive into these 13 fables, etched in verse. Maybe you will find your own dark dreams in there.
This abridged version of Dark Dreams features the cover art of comic book artist Brian Hurtt and 11 of the 19 original poems published in 2006 by Naked Snake Press, the remaining of which have been deemed too dark to republish. 2 new poems "Sleep Takes a Vacation" and "Just as Papa Said" have been included to this revised edition to reflect new and current dreams that afflict the poet.
Dark Dreams contains 13 of Christina Sng's best work from 2002-2006, including “Crimes of Our Youth” and “The Bone Carver”, which received Honourable Mentions in the Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, 16th and 17th Annual Editions in 2003 and 2004 respectively, as well as “Medusa in LA” which received a 2006 Rhysling Poetry Award nomination in the short poem category.
