The second volume of The Keeper of Dreams explores questions of morality refracted through the prisms of dreams, the unlikely, and the surreal. "A House Burning" opens upon a crowd of the disaffected watching the ashes of their home smolder. As they turn away, one-by-one, they find their lives torn asunder - and brought into new meaning. "Time Stops For" follows a stoner m ...more

I'm going to try to give this two reviews, one as I stop about halfway and then when I'm done.

Halfway in it's done well. By no means could anyone say this is bad, and the only downsides have been changing paths too quickly, sometimes feeling as if too unnecessarily. But still the twists of narrative expectation are enjoyable and next-level enough as to not feel Too-Used. The short stories are seen through the eyes of a person relevant to the story, so the language and vision is always focused im

In Matt Keefer’s second volume of short stories and poems, we join characters at crossroads. In “A House Burning,” we ask, what do we keep? What do we lose? At the gates of heaven (or hell), in “Mercy,” what do we want to remember? At a crime scene, in “A Typical Call,” whom do we deem the suspect and the victim? Are the policemen the potential criminals? In “The Prisoner,” are we prisoners in our own dreams or perpetrators of justice? Can we write ourselves out of an ill-fated world in “A Stude ...more

Keefer shares with us an eclectic collection of stories and poems that offer us a broad selection of views into his ability as a writer. Strongest among his works are those that focus on science fiction and the supernatural, as Keefer excels in bringing forth compelling settings. His characters are somewhat lacking in so far that Keefer relies on the setting to define them, and struggles when relying on the characters themselves-stories of his that take place in the mundane are less powerful tha ...more

Edge of writing greatness

In depth writing in prose and poetry, written on the insight of dreams and what is or may not be so surreal. A collection of prose and stories, facing uncertainty, and even the brink of humanity, sends shivers into the reader's mind and down the spine. It's beyond words can express, but the writing is wonderful and is inspiration, as it triggers emotions and different thoughts and perspectives.

The Keeper of Dreams (Volume 2) by Matthew Keefer is an interesting set of poetry. Inside, the poems sweep over me. Sending me further into a darkness. Choices are left to be made. Each poem like the one before it, is addictive. Stunning, entertaining, and fascinating. I fell into this book. I didn't want to come out...overall, I recommend The Keeper of Dreams to all. Matthew Keefer can definitely write well enough to suck anyone into his work. ...more

A very rich, interesting read. Something to be picked up many a time, usually during long sleepless nights. I know there is more in the works, and I look forward to reading those tales whenever they come out.

This compilation of short stories is an interesting read. I love the way they are open ended at the completion to give the readers imagination a way of filling in the blanks. I would definitely recommend for the imaginative reader who doesn't need a definitive ending. ...more

Admittedly not a fan of much modern fiction, I tend toward the classics, things that challenge and, at times, frustrate.
