While Max Benjamin is a respected family doctor, he is frustrated by the limits imposed on him by general practice and worried about the questionable behaviour of the practice's senior partner, Doctor Lew Forbes. Serena Benjamin is a loving wife and devoted mother, but increasingly, she is unhappy with domesticity and troubled by persistent headaches. Max, hoping to find answers, feels drawn to Hindu spirituality and, after a meeting with Guru Sri Bhajananda at a Hindu festival, is invited to his ashram in India. While there, with Guruji's guidance, Max's understanding of life expands, as he is taught new ways of thinking and shown new ways of being. Back in England, however, Serena's attempts to add some excitement to her weary, suburban life have serious consequences, which will eventually lead her, and Max, to realise the truth about themselves and discover just what the enlightened mind can achieve.

A Darkly Gripping Comic Fantasy Beyond the wall of sleep lies the Dreamlands, a world formed by dreams, but not a dream itself. For countless millennia, it has been explored only by those with a certain detachment from mundane reality, its strange seas navigated and its vast mountains climbed by philosophers, mystics, and poets. Well, those halcyon days are over, beatniks. Johannes Cabal is coming. Cabal, a necromancer of some little infamy, is employed by the mysterious Fear Institute to lead an expedition into the Dreamlands, an expedition to hunt and destroy the dread Phobic Animus, the font of terrors, the very source of all the world's fear. They will enter exotic lands where magic is common and monsters abound. Cabal will encounter witches, vile abominations, and far too many zebras. And, when they finally come close to their goal, Cabal will have to face his own nightmares. But for a man who communes easily with devils and the dead, surely there is nothing left to fear. . . .
