In the lineage of the best science fiction and the register of today’s new climate fiction—cli-fi for those who haven’t been reading much—See You in Our Dreams weaves a rich tapestry: a near-future struggle for radical social justice, stopping the current system in its tracks, and setting out in the direction of a unique experience of community. Grittily and inventively narrated by multiple voices, the author leaves readers to ponder what is lost and what is won when we raise our heads up to look clearly at where we are. This book bids us to break the rules—with courage, imagination, and love.John Foran teaches at UC Santa Barbara, and with co-instigators Jessica Alvarez Parfrey, the late Michael Bean, and many others, has founded the Eco Vista Project
Set in the 2050s, this is not your typical “dystopian novel.” Here you’ll meet a kaleidoscope of characters guided by a mysterious presence in the dreams they discover they are sharing. As the maze of high-tech monopoly corporatism begins to break down, they form an underground community of friends and co- conspirators. Their planet-wide, shadow-resistance network gradually emerges into consciousness in a bid to break the hold of a civilization gone mad, held in place by ultra-surveillance, where “govcorp” structures impose rationing of water and other necessities, in an urban “wilderness” without wild animals. Dreaming finally becomes action, in a mysterious reckoning in the desert. With its aura of quiet courage and overtones of spirituality, See You in Our Dreams is sure to make its way into your dreams, as well…..Dr. Ernie Tamminga is an evolutionary/interfaith Spiritual Director.
