What is a dream and why do we have them? Are they memories of a distant past or are they windows into unknown worlds? What mysteries can we solve by deciphering their symbols and metaphors? In Toxin City & Other Stories, Shayna Kay imagines places of wonder, unexpected journeys, and imagination—of mystical beasts and magical objects—where nature and morality battle for balance. Inspired by real dreams from the author, each story materializes hope, creativity, and understanding through the experiences of our most inner selves.
