This collection of short stories set in New York explores death and dreams. From the Catskill Mountains, to New York City and it's science research labs, the stories show the psychological horror of ordinary lives. The characters, young and old, explore the fine line drawn between sanity and insanity, reality and dream, life and death. Characters include a young scientist locked in a lab in an experiment turned nightmare, a student searching for love but caught in a dream, and a hit man confronting his childhood trauma, among others. The stories follow the choices realistic characters make when death becomes an inescapable part of their lives. Author J.J.Brown, a scientist, brings the authenticity of a modern science background to these realistic stories of psychological struggle.
