The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters
The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters is the first novel by playwright Gordon Dahlquist and was published in the US on August 1, 2006. A first sequel, The Dark Volume, was published in the UK by Penguin on May 1, 2008. A second sequel, The Chemickal Marriage was released in 2012.
The idea for the book came to Dahlquist during a jury duty in Manhattan in 2004, when he had a dream the second night about a mystery in a strange, dark, Victorian building. The character who would be known as Doctor Svenson appeared in the dream, but for unknown reasons, Dahlquist decided to write about a young woman instead when he started to write the story the next morning, since a snow storm prevented him from going out. Having no idea what it would be about or what would happen next, he made it up as the story progressed, and wrote the first 20,000 words in longhand over three weeks.
