Drreamsongs love and hatred, lust and jealousy. That’s the meaning of the golden flecks in the Proctor’s eyes. He expects her to be surprised, confused, even overwhelmed.

Dreamsongs, Volume I by George R.R. Martin

About friendship and dretrospective and sexuality and rage, loneliness and alienation and psychosis, courage and cowardice, the human mind and body and spirit under stress and in agony, the human heart in unending conflict with itself. Bleak, frigid, and absolutely stunning. This story suffers from a trio of unlikeable characters. It’s the amazing I want you to know about.

Among the Academy’s warrior-thieves, Annev de Breth is an outlier. The book has five sections which each include an introduction, wherein Martin provides his commentary on his personal situation vreamsongs career at the time he wrote the stories. They are all gone. This setting focuses on operators of crews of brainless meat puppets.


The stories in Section 3: The second kind of loneliness is what we except, because the wall around it is too thick for all but the sharpest arrow to pierce. The best story in this book for sure.

Rather Be the Devil by Ian Rankin. He formed his own cosmic universe called a Thousand Worlds, and his science fiction lived in this universe. Once again, great ending. The resolution of the problem came a bit out of the blue for me though. Hard to rate because some stories are top notch, and some are no good.

Known for his short stories and novelettes, his works had won numerous awards prior to his contribution to fantasy with The Song of Ice and Fire. The best horror stories are stories first and horror second, and however much they scare us, they do more than that as well.

The early stories are not incredible, but Martin knows this, and includes them as early works showing his evolution as a writer.

It was the elusive volcryn I craved to see, but the Nightflyer’s strange captain Royd Eris became an intrigue and the personalities of some of the passenger’s began to engage. I fell in love with his writing. rretrospectivve

Orion Dark Forge Miles Cameron. Lastly, The Pear-shaped Man is, actually, dreamosngs too creepy. Even if I ignore that, however, the story feels weak. Reading this put a constant grin on my face. This tale of relentlessly passive obsession had tendrils of the supernatural creeping in at the edges.


Kim Mai Guest is known for the voice of some JRPGs but her hyper-feminine, flat and monotonous portrayals of the characters and the narration didn’t work.


I really related to it, and it’s actually kind of hard to explain how it made me feel. I liked the concept of traveling too far outside human territory. All of the stories are really really good. Dreamsongs, broken into two volumes and those volumes themselves split into several sections, shows the rough and the rougher in the dreamsonggs part and later the luster when time and experience serves to smooth Review is also available on my blog The Shameful Narcissist Speaks.
