       Additional Information  
     
      Braided Dreams presents three original stories by Merlyn, a Scotsman who lived in the sixth century. Each chapter shows a continuing segment of one dream of the competition between brothers living in retirement in the early twenty-first century. The second dream is a chronological series of twenty-one short story segments that begin 12,000 years ago and conclude in Merlyn’s own lifetime. The third story is a future dream that has a mix of marsupial humanoids who live a more human life than the earthlings they meet.

    The stories from the present, past, and future interconnect as real dreams do because they originate from the singular dreamer, Merlyn, who though one of the Dead, still has his humanity intact. The language is symbolic and metaphorical like dreams are. The diligent reader will make what she or he will from this book and the two others that follow. These stories come from the same place all dreams come from, the unconscious mind of the dreamer.
