When the world around us becomes too real, we turn to fiction for relief and direction. We know how to face monsters because we have read it. We know how to survive because we have dreamed it. Here are the dreams of speculative poets and authors created for the sole purpose of taking you, for a time, to Somewhere Else. It’s the sandbox where you can face your fears and rebuild yourself as the hero/ine of your story.
