Dream Catcher 25
Published by Dream Catcher
Dream Catcher 25 balances national and international writing. 25 features such published poets as Steven Blyth, Genny Rahtz, Lucie McKee, Michael Swan, River Wolton, Christine McNeill, David Greenslade, Roger Caldwell and Jo Hemmant, publisher of Pin Drop Press,and publishes a poem from the late Matt Simpson. An amazing range from the down-to -earth to the celestial, from the gentle to the brutal.
Dream Catcher 25 opens with Adam Price's 'Letter from Iraq' with its mix of loss and perspective in the clash of relationships. Again Dream Catcher 25 offers excellent and often hard hitting short fiction - suspense-full, threating and challenging - over a wide range of subjects. The Scottish author, Douglas Thompson explores the vagaries around a father's death and new to Dream Catcher, the Lincolnshire writer, Sheri Young, reveals stories that combine high emotion and disturbance with the struggle to survive, the fight for an identity. Passion and the tendency toward unexpected attachments are explored in Peter Gilmour's 'Fast Forwards' and Ronan Corrigan's remarkably deceptive 'Emily' as well in Helen Kampfner's 'Gloves'. The peaceful and the violent are juxtaposed in this issue, expressed through poetry or fiction.

Dream Catcher contains as much fiction as poetry, and is as much national as international. It knows no barriers or borders. It aims for diversity and excellence, to encompass all subjects and all forms of writing, to represent the contemporary world's cultural mix, to explore subjects that arrest us today. Contemporary Writing for Contemporary Readers.
