Summary: John Smith is just an ordinary schoolmaster, but when he dreams…

In John Smith’s dreams, he’s someone else, living an amazing, incredible, unbelievable life full of impossible things. Sometimes when he wakes it seems as if his dreams are the reality and his life as a schoolmaster is the dream

In his dream-life he has two hearts, many faces, a blue box that transports him to distant places, and a whole array of implacable enemies he has to battle. It’s terrifying and exhilarating in equal measures, but sometimes he wishes he could just remain asleep and dreaming.

His life is so ordinary; only in his dreams does he feel truly alive.
