In the Net of Dreams

A world like no other…

The award-winning Dreamland Chronicles are now in ebook!


Written with a great deal of humour, suspense and wordplay, In the Net of Dreams is the first book of the gripping Dreamland Chronicles, an enthralling blend of science fiction and fantasy. For fans of Ernest Cline, this will be a perfect read.


Praise for William Mark Simmons:

“Frequently fun…” Publishers Weekly

“In the Net of Dreams comes about as close as possible to translating the sheer experience of fantasy gaming into novel form.” Dragon

“…Simmons’ ability to mingle side-splitting humor with layers of depth makes him one of the most exciting new sf/f novelists to appear in years.” Elizabeth Ann Scarborough

“In the Net of Dreams by Wm. Mark Simmons is not the first fantasy novel to mix cyberspace and role-playing games, but is one of the best, and a highly impressive first novel.” Carolyn Cushman, LOCUS


William Mark Simmons spent his formative years in Independence, Missouri, and pursued a double major in Theatre and Mass communications. He has worked as an actor, director, musician, and entertainer, hosting his own shows in both Television and Radio while winning awards as a journalist and copywriter. He is the author of seven novels; his first, In The Net of Dreams, was a finalist for the Compton Crook Award and made the Locus “Best” list in 1991.
