Full Description

By popular request, World Fantasy Award winning novelist and opera composer S.P. Somtow delivers nine years' worth of his dreams, meticulously recorded in a dream journal. A glimpse into the inner world of one of today's Renaissance men, The Maestro's Noctuary contains images both inspiring and disturbing. From bright blue coelocanths encircling the globe to mediaeval spaceships to Paleolithic Venuses that unzip their skin to reveal hidden cameras to vomit that splits into emeralds, Somtow's dream diary is like an anthology of symbolist prose poems, reminiscent of the fevered mind of Rimbaud. Then there are dreams that seem to contain entire plots of novels unwritten, perhaps a treasure trove to be mined for future works. And finally there are encounters with archetypes that seem to have messages to deliver, or instructions from a higher place. Intriguingly illustrated by the author's adopted son Mikey Jiraros, this is a book to be savored.
