Episode 50: Dreamscapes and Nightmares - Writing the Unconscious

 

This week, the dragons examine that murky area of the mind - the subconscious - with a look at how our unconscious desires and fears manifest in dreams, and how this is reflected in speculative fiction. Just what are the schools of thought on dream sequences and what makes a dream sequence good or bad? Find out by joining SFF writers M.E.Vaughan and J.A.Ironside for this week's dissection. On the slab this week - Stephen King, J.K.Rowling and Stephanie Meyer, Mary Hoffman's Stravaganza series, Inception and many more.
