Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last Night's Dream I really enjoyed this book and it's walk through alternative realities. The stories are really varied and reflect the author's ability to understand and sympathize with characters from many different walks of life. The messages are there and willing to be heard but are not so apparent as to be didactic or heavy handed. It has impact especially when you consider that it's a first published collection. I look forward to many more.

From Our Editors

Heather Frayne makes her extraordinary debut with this bold, compelling collection of short stories exploring religion, world politics, dreams, history and modern realism. Last Night’s Dream: Short Stories examines moral uncertainty, the need for perfection, evil’s arbitrariness, the connection between life and death and overwhelming love. The tales include “Our Tribute to Dr. Ismael,” where a well-loved doctor, beaten into a coma, reflects society’s apathy toward random violence. “Of Love and Hockey” describes a couple who stop communicating but are drawn back together by an understanding gesture and “All to Maurie” is an ode to stoic farm life and its impact on a family.
