Dream Catcher 29 takes the reader on an astonishing journey. A voyage propelled by the power that words have to create, in a single phrase, new evocative vistas of time and place, to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary, to take a step beyond the obvious into mystery and ambivalence. Again and again the reader’s expectations are confounded by a sudden twist, by light striking from a different direction, a shaft of wisdom, a flash of humour.
There is horror here, but love too. There is anger, there is death, there is the redeeming power of the everyday, and the despair of the lost and alone.
Our contributions come from every corner of the British Isles and from France, from Italy, from Canada and the USA. Some contibutors are well known: Mario Susko, Kenneth Steven, Helen Burke; while for a few this is their first publication. This issue features the brilliant art of Michele Damiano who for some part of his life was forced into being homeless: this is an avenue we expect to explore further in the next issue.
Dream Catcher’s editorial team, supervised by John Gilham, is proud to present Issue 29 of this international showcase of poetry and prose, fully maintaining the excellence and diversity which has been the magazine’s hallmark since its start; fully realising the dream of Founding Editor Paul Sutherland, to have a truly eclectic and high quality Literary and Arts Journal.
