My friend and tutor Graham Joyce died a couple of months ago. There was a huge outpouring of grief and sadness from so many people in the Fantasy writing community, and those from the East Midlands who’d known and cared about Graham. Many tributes have been written and I don’t feel I can add anything to the wonderful words that have already been said. So, instead of writing, I’m going to read in memory of Graham.
I’m starting with Dreamside, his first novel, which is about a group of lucid dreamers who arrange to meet up in their sleep. I’ve always loved this book, at least partly because I’m a lucid dreamer myself. Graham revisited this book just a couple of years ago and wrote about it here. My memories are that it nailed the lucid dreaming experience remarkably. I’m looking forward to revisiting this one and will blog about that soon.
