Discussion of a Decent Dream
by E. Curtis


GENRE: Dark Fantasy



In the fall of 1789, on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales, a dense, persistent fog enshrouds the village of Ingleton. Shadowed spirits hide in the mist and bedevil the townsfolk, heralding a tragedy that has befallen one of their own.

Edmond continues to search for Alexandra, his fiancée, who disappeared the same night that the mist set upon their town. Presumed dead by all others, he visits Alexandra's empty grave, desperate for any hint of what has become of her. Weary from the sleepless nights on his quest, no longer able to stay awake, Edmond falls into a dream before her headstone and there obtains clues from Alexandra as to her whereabouts.

Haunted all the while by a malevolent spirit, Edmond follows the trail that Alexandra left for him and enters the underworld, only to learn that he has been there before, and in fact, quite often. But more, he discovers how he is to blame for Alexandra's disappearance.

A dark literary novel rich in imagery, Discussion of a Decent Dream unearths the consequences of a child's decision to surrender his heart in exchange for unholy power and transcendent knowledge.

Discussion of a Decent Dream is a Finalist in Britain's Wishing Self Book Awards in the Adult category.



We ignored the portent that crept into the countryside the day she disappeared. But in the weeks that followed, with no answers as to what had befallen her, with no assurance that she still lived, we came to understand, and most saw the worst in the blanket of mist that stopped time and shut us out from the rest of the world.

I had just turned twenty-one the summer of 1789 when Alexandra went missing. And after all our fruitless searching, in need of some direction, I snuck, under the cover of night, into the yard where her parents had laid their sorrow to rest. Falling to my knees before the stone of her empty grave I spoke with reverence, not for the hallowed ground, but for the call that brought me, as though somehow she could hear me.



What Was the Inspiration for Your Story?

All children fear the unknown that lurks in the dark of night. But the dark revealed itself to me. It warmed to me in my dreams, and already blessed with a gift of awareness, I became acquainted with this evil all too well. After much conversion, the wicked won me over, fear faded to a fascination with the night, and I embarked on a study of a power given to me by this otherworldly mentor of mine.

What I didn’t realize was the cost for such gifts. But the ramifications began to reveal themselves. I had hurt others. With all the grandeur given, I still possessed a sense of self-reflection and objectivity, and in that reflection, I didn’t like what I had become. I had no answers as to my cast-down state, as to my past ruination, or why I had given into to the darker tendencies of my nature, but I found myself despondent, wandering an underworld, unable to speak or share with those around me what ailed me.

Thus, I set myself on a path of self-destruction. Hell was all I saw, my beloved hell. On this journey I sought no self-correction, merely understanding of those past interactions with the dark that seemed infatuated with me and why that was so.

The journey, experienced through creative visions and transportations, overtook me and spilled out onto the pages of my writing journal, wondering at what I had traded for forbidden experience? I sensed what wasn’t there, or what others say wasn’t there. Magical lights, waves of energy, all part of being, of existence. I realized that what was given me was not my own, but a magic unholy, but it was too late. I had delved too deeply, conjured the unforgivable.

This Discussion was an attempt to undo the hold this spirit had on me.



E. Curtis draws on personal experiences of the otherworldly for his writing. Through dreams, visions, and waking encounters, his exposure to darkness has motivated him to detail what he has come to know of the preternatural. While a few short pieces have been published on an online literary magazine, Discussion of a Decent Dream is his first novel.
