In addition to the works of Lewis Carroll and Philip K. Dick already cited (and my own stories, of course), the following books are all good candidates for the "dreampunk" label. While each item may not fit the bill 100%, I've tried to select works that have the right sort of aesthetic and deal in some way with the internal/illusory/mystical world of dreams.
