“Imagine if men were judged not just for their deeds
but for their secret thoughts, their dreams, their hankerings:
dungeons and madhouses would be full.”
-- Jerome Van Aken (1450-1516).

In his newest and most chilling dystopia, W. E. Gutman takes fellow insomniacs on a dark, eerie journey into a
netherworld of visions that skirt the nightmarish regions of insanity.
Written for the stage and screen, ONE LAST DREAM asks disquieting questions: Do the dreams we spin, the
thoughts we ponder betray us? Can our musings be censored? Will the neurons in our brains be rewired to turn us into
servile conformists? Is the clash of dreams the real cause of mankind’s afflictions?
If neuroscientists succeed, there will soon be a way to access and decipher the brain’s most quirky constructs.
And ethicists will struggle with a new conundrum: Will dreamers be spied upon by some future thought police? How long
before eccentric nightmares or heretical concepts -- whether seized in one’s sleep or evoked in a wakeful state -- are
intercepted and wayward dreamers are reprogrammed or permanently silenced? In ONE LAST DREAM, W. E. Gutman
explores the consequences of mind manipulation in a world where free thought is feared, erudition is reviled, and
morality is little more than a distillate of codified groupthink.
