Review

What they are saying about Lee Baldwin's Halcyon Dreamworlds
A great cyber punk story!
The cyber science behind it is fascinating and believable...fast-paced plot twists will keep you guessing... I recommend this book to science fiction and cyber punk fans... a quality read! ~ Blaine Coleman

Really enjoyed this book!
A fascinating journey into a future world where virtual fantasy is indistinguishable from real life. Takes the idea of artificial intelligence into corporate domination and classism while letting the feminine spirit and hope shine through power and greed. ~Randie

A thoroughly entertaining and thought-provoking story.
Fast-paced and complex, Halcyon Dreamworlds is believable science fiction, raising questions about technology that are relevant and challenging. Logan Fischer, with a past she'd like to forget, is swept away into the glittering, decadent sexuality of the simulations, until her one trusted friend and family member is found dead at the neurological bridge into a virtual world. ~Amazon Author Marian Thorpe 

Love This.
I love Lee, and I love how he crafts this amazing book. I am ready for my own SPIDER CAP. ~ Tom La France

Real vs. fantasy.
Interesting insight into the substitution of real relationships for online fantasies. Compelling, with an eye for visual detail... ~ Amazon Customer

Mind-meld with an alternate reality.
The story is about how a war inside a mega-multiplayer avatar world becomes a war in reality. A woman wants to let goof her falsehoods to live a moral life. But she's trapped by her addiction to the cyber fantasy world. An original mystery for readers who enjoy the play of language. ~ ArthurCronos

You've never read anything like it before.
I love sci-fi and thrillers, but was surprised the book is that and much more. Logan struggles to repair her damaged past by trying to re-live her lost years in a computer fantasy world. She has lied, but wants to live a moral life. However, she is trapped by her own cyber addiction as the war inside the online avatar world becomes a war in reality... A mystery with many interconnected stories and rich imagery that goes beyond sci-fi into a form of "new adult" literature. Baldwin's topic is becoming the present. ~ Judith

Lively and imaginative with issues of moral significance.
A gripping cyber future in which big government, the ultra-rich and extensions of current technology combine to produce the ultimate "opiate for the masses." The goal of this unbridled corporate power is to buy governments, enslave the populace via cyber seduction,and of course control the world. Baldwin's work is ambitious speculative fiction supported by well-developed characters, lively and imaginative dialog and presents issues of great moral significance. A propulsive thriller that grabs your imagination and does not let go. You will be guessing until the last page. ~ Betty

From the Author

Note to the Third Edition.


I revised the original manuscript considerably. The first three chapters needed better movement, and I re-ordered them in the process. I deleted the final eight chapters and wrote nine shorter, more kinetic chapters in their place.

The novel needed to better serve Yuri's main goal: She was prepared to give everything she has to protect the people of the world's most debt-ridden nation from further ruin at the hands of men like David Verkrag. I sought a bullet train of successive resolutions at the finish, with a climax that supports her central goal.

~ Lee Baldwin, January, 2017
