|Plot Summary of Bones of the Moon|
|"In Bones of the Moon, the author paints an amazingly surreal picture of Rondua, the dream world created by Cullen James. Her dreams start out small and slightly disturbing. But as quickly as they began, they grow
into a dream world where nothing is predictable. Dogs wear top hats, long forgotten machines live in the desert, and a madman who changes shape is trying to take over. With the help of several friends, including her aborted child Pepsi, Cullen must save Rondua before her real world is destroyed. Carroll is one of the greatest authors today and Bones of the Moon one of his best works."
