Description

What if dreams could be made to order? In the world created by psychiatrist and author Han Soo Lee, MD, people can customize their dreams by answering a very detailed computerized questionnaire. Through the wonders of nanotechnology, these answers are embedded in a coin-sized wafer that holds the dream-producing program, which is worn as a skin patch on the person's temple. The widget's inventor, Dr. Jupitren, is a highly respected professor of psychiatry and a dream and sleep specialist. He administers the wafers to clients of Acmeon Lab who are suffering from a variety of anxiety- and sleep-related disorders. But despite his noble intentions, there are those who wish to use his invention as a means of control. Dream Wafer revolves around the efforts of the good doctor, along with his niece, Helen, who runs the lab, Steve, a tech-savvy client who is attracted to Helen, and precinct Sergeant Bill Warren, to discover who is breaching the wafer program's security measures and to outmaneuver their rivals in a game of high-stakes cat and mouse. Along the way, the story explores the fascinating nature of dreams and poses titillating questions about the future of such technology.show more
