Disclaimer: I have a story in this anthology. I am not reviewing my own story, nor do I receive additional compensation for this review.

This is a collection of short stories centered in the Rehoboth Beach, Delaware area revolving around the different author's ideas on dreams--literal ones and metaphorical ones. This is an impressive collection of well-written prose ranging from the sweet and romantic to the mysterious and frightful. There's a little something for everyone here.

Like most anthologies, this one was hit or miss for me. I really like Shells; The Bull, Dogs and Sleep; Dreams We've Lived; and What Would My House Say?
And (no false modesty here) my own 'A Beach Story.'

Several of these stories are quite good. Several are less great. Overall though, this was an enjoyable little read.
