Corpus Pretereo – I escape the body.
That’s the name of a new anthology coming out on the 10th of October, featuring stories with this theme – including my story Dreamdancer. 🙂
The races of fantasy as described by Tolkien and his followers – the elves, the dwarves, the orcs etc – have been overused and I tried to give a new twist with Dreamdancer. Dreamdancers are a race related to the elves, who can manipulate their dreams and invite others inside.
Here is what the story is about:
Dreamdancer Aivar has fled the devastation of his homeland and must whore his dreams out to humans to scrape by day to day. To save a sick friend from death, he pretends to posses a higher level of dream control. But when this deception causes a vicious customer to wound him, only an old love of his, a High Elite kinswoman, can save him. However, the price may be more than he is willing to pay.
The other stories in the anthology sound great too and I can’t wait to get the book. It will come out in electronic format, and the cover is truly amazing:
