@Valdus Thanks! Thats one of those things that I really try to accomplish when I write, a sense of the character in the writing style itself. I'm glad you like it :)

SC, you have awesome sense of cultural space & time. Your characters, whether in Rem or D.A. Read as if they are really from that time, that place.

This is great stuff, just finished Lucidity. It runs close to Flight Club but there is so much more. Great amount if detail ( the hunger pains)- off to 2!

If your writing about dreaming than gritty and half awake sounds perfect!

@Valdus It was fun "researching" this one. Took a lot of work, but I was able to lucid dream 5 or 6 times. There are lots of scenes that are taken from my actual dreams too. It's pretty raw because it was written in 3 days fueled by coffee and gin, but I still love it :) I hope you love it too!

I actually got addicted to that practice, so looking forward to reading this
