Bottomless Dreams is a fearlessly inventive story collection—a philosophical tapestry woven with imagination, wit, and guts. Each story presents a unique world, wildly different from the last. The stories range from the fantastic to the gritty, travelling through the past, present, and future. The writing is fierce yet playful, full of hooks and twists, and always riding the edge. The characters, flawed and human, navigate moments in their lives that alter them forever: an arctic explorer forced to choose between his life and the lives of his crewmates, a boy forced to confront a woman he believes is a witch, a brilliant street musician who grapples with addiction, a couple competing to conceive in an overpopulated future.
The stories range in form from flash fiction to novella, and are set in backdrops that span not only the earth, but also the universe. This collection breaks rules, pushes limits, defies genres, spits in the face of social convention, peels away the limiting concepts that inundate our daily life, and dropkicks us down the path of liberation. It is a book that marks our time, but speaks beyond it. It is a book about love, imagination, and the power of the human spirit.
