Set in a reality where nightmares do not fade upon waking, this anthology skims along the surface of life and dips just beneath, revealing the hidden machinations that fuel dreams. These underlying myths and fantasies exist not as musty old stories but as ancient truths that have come to illuminate the modern human condition. The title story touches on themes of grief, redemption, and time travel; "Cold Fire" ventures into love and obsession; and "Peace on Suburbia" introduces readers to a Christmas with an entirely different kind of savior. These and 13 other tales are framed by four interludes?Dreams, Nightmares, Waking, and Rising?that guide readers through a world that is at once familiar and eerily off-kilter.

This anthology starts off with a miniature novel, and from then on all of the stories are the perfect length. They are short enough to be read easily in one sitting but long enough to include all the necessary details. Some themes get a bit too repetitive: lots of mothers coping with the loss of their children, lots of writers, and FAR TOO MANY ANGELS. But the writing is really good. Honestly, I usually put books down at the first appearance of an angel, but I finished this one despite there being lots of angels. This book won the World Fantasy Award by the way.
