is the third volume in the story of The Sandman
The four short stories in Dream Country all revolve around ancient and near-forgotten myths. The acclaimed story "A Midsummer Night's Dream," in which William Shakespeare puts on a play for the Faerie folk and for the Sandman, won the 1991 World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story, the first such honor bestowed upon a comic book. Also includes Gaiman's own script for the story "Calliope," in which a frustrated writer holds a Muse named Calliope hostage.
Dreams of writers, fairies, felines, and unemployed immortals take center stage in this collection of Sandman stories.
This exquisite and enchanting volume provides easy entry for newcomers to Neil Gaiman's The Sandman and to comics. Inside are the dreams of writers, fairies, felines, and unemployed immortals, and the World Fantasy Award-winning tale "A Midsummer-Night's Dream," which spotlights an unusual performance of William Shakespeare's play. Eighth printing. Graphic novel format. Mature readers.
