A Collection of Short Stories
About the Book
Dreamtime: A Collection of Short Stories dissects a wide range of social problems by merging realism with fantasy and the supernatural. Gifted storyteller Robert Steiner addresses some of life's uncommon questions and provides provocative answers. Sweeping from Australia and Italy to outer space, Steiner offers a look at the world from an altered point of view and compels us to rethink our most sacred beliefs."Steiner's stories share commonalities with those of Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Ray Bradbury, and are distinguished by the author's ability to occupy fully his unnamed and generally conventional narrators. An unusually personal glimpse into the mystical, certain to haunt readers long after the last page." -Kirkus Discoveries "Robert Steiner is a storyteller with a gift for description. He grabs the reader's attention from the first word and offers tidbits of uniqueness to carry you through to the end of each tale. Dreamtimes is an interesting and enjoyable read that touches on the paranormal but also demonstrates the very human qualities of its characters." -Heather Froeschel, Bookreview.com
