Maybe the Dream Knows What is Real
Steve Grogan, author
He was lost, directionless, unable to find his identity. He thought he found it in her, which was good because he was teetering on the edge of madness. She had no way of knowing her actions would push him over it. This novella is part splatterpunk, part erotica, part psychological study of an unstable mind, told in Steve's highly visual and deeply emotional prose. Some stories have protagonists/narrators for which you can feel empathy, or at the very least you can feel sorry for them. This isn't one of those tales. This is a story about a young man who makes the mistake of depending on others to give him a sense of self-worth. It is a dark, disturbing story not meant for the faint of heart. The graphic content makes up only 15% of the prose, but it is some of the most harrowing writing ever committed to page. Steve Grogan has published several collections of poetry and short stories, both here on Amazon and in print. This is his first published novella.
