Review of "The Sandman's Dreams" by Jess Hyslop

"The Sandman's Dreams" by Jess Hyslop appeared in Daily Science Fiction on April 4, 2013.  "A married woman dreams special, vivid dreams, gifts from her long lost love--the Sandman."

If Ms. Hyslop is a poet as well as an author (her bio did not say), I would love to read her poetry.  The words of her story have a lyrical quality, a dreamy quality (apropos in a story about dreams).  I was reminded a bit a Peter Pan, one of my favorite tales, but there was a touch of Neil Gaiman's romantic side here too.  Brava!  7 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
