Description

Lynne Darlington returns to Chilling Tales for Dark Nights to narrate this amazing tale by accomplished New York Times bestselling author Rachel Simon. Otis Jiry lends a hand as the voice of the protagonist's husband, Fabian. In the story, an elderly couple very much in love decides to try dreaming the same dream. At first the wife laughs off the idea, but the husband, who's been pushing get-closer schemes since the moment he carried her over the threshold, convinces her. Unaware they're keeping secrets from each other, thinking they're getting into nothing more than a lighthearted afternoon, they lie down together. What ensues is a dark journey into the unknown, where secrets are revealed, forebodings find form, and love -- even love with "Marriage ESP" -- must face the ultimate foe. Previously adapted for NPR and the Lifetime Channel, "Little Nightmares, Little Dreams" was the title story of Rachel Simon's first book, an acclaimed collection of short stories originally published in 1990, which will be re-released in e-book form in the summer of 2014. Rachel was thrilled when Craig Groshek from Chilling Tales for Dark Nights stumbled across "Little Nightmares, Little Dreams" in an anthology from the 1990s and got in touch, asking to produce an audio narration of this forgotten treasure. We at Chilling Tales for Dark Nights are proud to present our production of Rachel Simon's acclaimed story for your listening entertainment.
