Once upon a time, in the haunted city of Derry, four boys stood together and did a brave thing. Certainly a good thing, perhaps even a great thing. Something that changed them in ways they could never begin to understand.
Twenty-five years later, the boys are now men with seperate lives and separate troubles. But the ties endure. Each hunting season the foursome reunite in the woods of Maine. This year, a stranger stumbles into their camp, disoriented, mumbling something about lights in the sky. His incoherent ravings prove to be disturbingly prescient. Before long, these men will be plunged into a horrifying struggle with a creature from another world. Their only chance of survival is locked in their shared past--and in the Dreamcatcher.

He'd like to call them nightmares, but he's wide-awake. He can't call himself crazy, because there is another person who sees these happenings, too. But even if seeing is believing, it still doesn't give him a clue of how to stop these deadly, demonic visions from coming true...

The Magic of Touch/Revolutionary Ways to Use Your Most Powerful Sense (New Ways to Health)
Review Date: 1/11/2008


Touch is the most fundamental of our senses and the parent of all our other senses--seeing, hearing,tasting,smelling. In the human embryo, it develops first.It is so important, in fact, that infants deprived of loving touches often do not survive.
Nor does the power of touch diminish as we mature. Touch is our first language and it remains our most powerful communicator throughout life. Touch is essential to our emotional and sexual lives and has a profound impact on our behavior. It is at once the great stimulator of the central nervous system and the ultimate form of calming reassurance. Tactile experience may be as important to our health and well-being as nutritious food.

Tommy Phan is a thirty-year-old Vietnamese American detective novelist living in southern California, and a chaser of the American dream. He drives home his brand new Corvette one day to discover a strange doll on his doorstep. It's rather like a rag doll, but is covered entirely with white cloth, having no face or hair or clothes, little more than a doll blank. Where the eyes should be, there are two crossed stitches of black thread. Five sets of crossed black stitches mark the mouth, and another pair form an X over the heart.

He brings it into the house. That night, he hears an odd little popping sound and looks up to see the crossed stitches breaking over the doll's heart. When he picks the doll up, he feels something pulsing in it's chest. Another thread unravels to reveal a reptilian green eye--not a doll's eye, because it blinks. Tommy Phan pursues the thing as it scrambles away into his house--and then is pursued by it, as it evolves from a terrifying and vicious minikin into a hulking and formaidable opponent bent on killing him. THE DEADLINE IS DAWN, the creature types on Tommy's computer screen, and in the hours that follow, with the help of a beautiful, strangely, intuitive waitress he meets on the highway, Tommy frantically flees this fierce enemy, desperate to discover what this thing is and why it's pursuing him.
