The Lucidity of Dreams

(5 Sterne)

Dream of Armageddon, this text lures you in with the question; "are dreams windows into other realities"?. I found the idea intriguing, as one wakes from a dream sometimes questioning their own reality. More so when we lose entire lives the moment we open our eyes.

A dream or the future?

A short, dark and prescient tale from HG Wells at his best. Compelling tale performed superbly in this radio adaptation.
