“I’m writing this in the morning now. I’m writing this on the edge of that blade that’s consciousness on one side and dream on another, that thin silver horizon where you hover right before falling asleep, and right before completely waking. Neil Gaiman lives here all the damn time. He scribbles his stories and sends them out from the thin silver horizon whose bridge the rest of us traverse just twice a day.”

-Steve Erickson, in the introduction of The Sandman, Dream Country.
