Dreamtime
(First Fantastic Collection of Completely Fractured Fiction)


"I love these stories. They are teeming with inventive ideas about a future where technology has increased our isolation, but we still strive for connection." - J Moira

A collection of stories about what you’ve always feared.

Lovers of shows such as Black Mirror, The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, will enjoy Mark Le Dain’s dark satirical collection of stories, Dreamtime.

Dreamtime is a collection of twenty tales set in the near future where a person’s life is monitored, influenced, and sometimes crafted by the technology we both love and hate.

  • What would an autonomous car be willing to do when it’s primary directive is to save your life over everything else?

  • What if governments made you live in an environment that reflected your carbon footprint?

  • What if students were taught to exercise their response to fear the same way they are taught to train any other muscle or skill? What would those classes look like?
  • From stories of how pure feelings are administered like a drug, and the means to acquire the purest feelings, to stories of a future where a market exists for everything, including your life – Mark Le Dain’s disturbing “slices of life” sometimes feel eerily close.

    Reviews:

    "Great collection of dystopian short stories. The stories are original, thought-provoking, and full of twists and turns. Each story feels like it could be expanded into an entire book of its own." - Erica Virtue

    "Every story is a complete shining jewel. Engaging and entertaining on one level. Deeply thought provoking on another level. Well worth your time." - Lisa, amazon

    "Story's range in feel from Blade Runner to Tomorrowland, always with fresh ideas that keep you thinking after finishing the bite size read." - Lee, amazon

    "I highly recommend this book if you enjoy intellectual stimulation and fluid prose. Fantastic work." - Phil Law

    "The overall tone is dystopian as most of the stories look at unintended or undesirable consequences of future technology. ... Highly recommended to fans of Sci Fi, especially those who appreciate intelligent sci-fi that uses futuristic concepts to examine basic things like human nature." - Dr. Gonzo

    "I love these stories. They are teeming with inventive ideas about a future where technology has increased our isolation, but we still strive for connection." - J Moira

    "Ender's Game meets Black Mirror. Full of complex characters, humour, and just the right amount of darkness." - Amazon Customer
