"Award-winning author James C. Glass presents Matrix Dreams & Other Stories, a science fiction and fantasy anthology filled with ghosts, aliens, hidden terrors, and disturbing cruelties of hunan and non-human nature alike. Time travel, human conflict, disturbing dreams and much more lace the pages of unforgettable stories such as "War Machine," "The Trial of Heinrich Volger," "Honeymoon Hotel," and much more. The brevity of such tales make them perfect for a quick nighttime read before bed...assuming the reader is not overly susceptible to nightmares."
—Midwest Book Review
"The stories tug your emotions on several levels. Though short, they beg you to read them. The title story, "Matrix Dreams," deals with futuristic psychotherapy using virtual therapy labs and human "constructs." The tale opens with Gordon working on his latest case involving Megan and her enormous guilt about her husband's death. I was glued to the last sentence to see how the story would resolve itself in such a short amount of pages. Each piece is well-written, some better than others, but I recommend this short story collection to all fans of dark fiction and speculative fiction."
