The Dreamland Chronicles by William Mark Simmons
A world like no other…
“A high-tech heroic fantasy full of adventure, puns, and damn good reading. Well thought out.” Pulsar
The award-winning Dreamland Chronicles are now in ebook!
In Dreamland, you can experience your wildest fantasies come true.
But not all fantasies are meant to become reality…
Dreamland takes you out of your body and into computer-generated worlds where anything you can imagine is possible. People become avatars, battle dragons and wield swords, spells and their wits.
Ride the open prairie with Jessie James or Billy the Kid, in Frontierworld. Sprout gills and experience an undersea adventure in Oceanworld. Hunt dinosaurs and meet the missing link in Primalworld. Fight a dragon and rescue a fair damsel from the black knight in Fantasyworld, the oldest and most popular of the Dreamland programs.
The Dreamland Chronicles includes:
In the Net of Dreams
When Dreams Collide
The Woman of His Dreams
Written with a great deal of humour, suspense and wordplay, The Dreamland Chronicles is an enthralling blend of science fiction and fantasy. For fans of Ernest Cline, this will be a perfect read.
