Psychological/Medical Thriller 'The Experiment Of Dreams' Now Available in PrintPsychological/Medical Thriller 'The Experiment Of Dreams' Now Available in Print
by BWW News Desk - Jan 17, 2015

A machine capable of recording our dreams has been created... Benjamin Walker's lifelong career of testing experimental drugs and medicines, as well as participating in fascinating sleep-related studies, has come to an end. A new and lucrative job opportunity is offered to Ben, working on a project named Lucy, a machine capable of reading and recording a person's dreams in intimate detail. Headed by the genius Dr. Peter Wulfric and privately funded by the elusive millionaire, Mr. Timothy Kalispell (a man with a fascination of the arts that borders on the obsessive) takes Ben all over the world, from the Louvre in Paris to the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Along his travels, Ben meets a beautiful girl named Sophia, who might just help him overcome his crushing depression over the death of his lost love, his Emily. All is finally going well for Ben . . . until strange dreams of a town named Drapery Falls begin to plague him, and memories once hidden begin to reveal themselves. The doctors and staff onboard team Lucy are not who Ben thinks they are, and Mr. Kalispell will stop at nothing to keep Ben's emerging memories buried for good. Ben is put on a collision course that will bring him to the brink of total insanity, and perhaps even death. At the heart of it all, Ben's worst enemy is his own mind, and he must confront his past in order to save his future. Recent Praise for "The Experiment of Dreams": "The twists and turns of the plot will leave your head reeling and possibly questioning your own mental state for a moment. If you are looking for a tempestuous thriller, look no further as this book will surely fill the void." -The San Francisco Book Review "Fans of thrillers and mysteries will enjoy The Experiment of Dreams." -Portland Book Review "The Experiment of Dreams is an absorbing study of how our perception of reality and imagination interact in the subconscious mind. The characters are true to life and the neuroscience is cutting edge yet understandable." -Indie Reader Book Details: The Experiment of Dreams By Brandon Zenner ISBN: 978-0692355138 (pb) ISBN: 978-0692259146 (ebook) ASIN: B00IOY7FJ8 Pages: 300 Genre: Thriller, Medical Thriller, Psychological Thriller From The Author: Brandon Zenner was born and raised in Red Bank New Jersey, only a short distance from the shore. Ideas for novels and short stories began popping up in his mind when Brandon was a teenager. After honing his craft, his first completed work, The Experiment of Dreams, went live on Amazon in 2014. Outside of writing, Brandon's daughter, wife, and two dogs (rescued from a local shelter) keep him constantly entertained. Not that he's complaining. (more...)
