    Those who dream for the entertainment of the masses must pay a terrible price in Grand Master Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s breathtaking vision of a dark, dystopian future America In tomorrow’s world, Dreams are big business. When all labor is drudgery, when unhappiness runs rampant and violent rioting is the norm in America’s cities, Dreams are the opiate of the masses, designed to keep the general population docile and entertained with calculated breaks added in for advertisements. Only a talented few have what it takes to be Dreamers—those whose nocturnal visions are suitably imaginative, coherent, and consistent enough to be shared with the public. It is the responsibility of professionals like Jehanne Bliss and her ex-husband, Tony MacKenzie, to discover potential Dreamers and help hone their remarkable abilities—and Honor Gordon, an unfulfilled worker in a hydroponics plant, appears to be a veritable diamond in the rough. But there is a terrifying dark side to this burgeoning entertainment industry, for to Dream is to court madness . . . and death.   Named Grand Master of the World Horror Convention in 2003 and a Living Legend by the International Horror Guild, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro dreams up a frightening dystopian future in her extraordinary science fiction classic, Hyacinths.
