Introduction

A dream story belongs to a new genre that aims to reproduce dreams, not reality. Therefore, please consider the following:

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Just as anything is possible in a dream, anything is possible in a dream story.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. A plot is unnecessary.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Coherence is unnecessary.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. There could be elements of “reality.”

*
p<>{color:#000;}. There is usually plenty of symbols and allusions of various degrees of subtlety.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. A dream story can have any length, from a few characters to a few hundred thousand words.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. An astute reader may predict some future events by interpreting a good dream story.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. There could be intentional “misspellings,” and grammar and diction “errors.”

*
p<>{color:#000;}. What may appear as an obvious error could be a subtle allusion, symbol, allegory, pun, new coinage, or just a chimerical figment of the dream story.

Pushing the Luck Truck

It was Moonday, December 32, 1452; and the sun had risen in the West as usual.

The people of Palacetown had grown up under the control of a Supertribe of gnomes who had monopolized the foul lubricant technology for decades. No one seemed to know exactly where those gnomes had come from, or how they had managed to become a Supertribe. They were also known as the Luminers, a word whose true origin no one seemed to understand or ask about. Some claim that an emperor from overseas had granted them the land without even having a title deed. But how could someone who didn’t own something grant it to someone else? If you couldn’t pull it off for a piece of cake, would you be able to do so for a piece of land?
