"Startling, grotesque, and revelatory, The Broker of Nightmares will sink its claws into the folds of your brain and inject liquid gifts of oneiric terror.” - Matthew M. Bartlett, author of Gateways to Abomination and The Stay-Awake Men & Other Unstable Entities

When she was young, Slaw often woke screaming. In the darkness of her bedroom, she would whisper a single prayer to the invisible gods of her childhood: “Please don’t let me dream.” But as she grew older, day-to-day life overwhelmed her imagination—smothering her dreams under the pillow of the mundane. 

Now a stressed, middle-aged ER doctor at Dunnstown General, Slaw receives a strange proposition from a junkie would-be-patient. 

A dream for a drug. 

The days that follow lead to terror, seduction, self-loathing, and enlightenment as Dr. Slaw breaks the yoke of her humdrum existence and slakes her dream-thirst. But can she survive in a new world where everything she sees and touches blooms with the most opulent nightmares? 

And, if she does survive, what will Dr. Slaw become?
