The Sump of Lost Dreams

The Sump of Lost Dreams

Jamie and Keziah help set up a pay-as-you-go cafe and homelessness hub for the city’s down-and-outs, a project led by Keziah’s tentative new boyfriend Mark Bright.

In the heavens, evil spirits plot to destroy the project, shatter their dreams, and plunge their souls into the celestial sewer system, the Sump of Lost Dreams. And they recruit an old foe to help them.

Along the way, Jamie and Keziah fight evil plots, rescue souls from peril, fight each other, and even argue with the Personification of Divine Wisdom. Meanwhile, Jamie wonders if love might finally be blossoming for him.


Glenn Myers channels Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams and John Bunyan in his writing – very entertaining and thought provoking. Did you ever wonder if you had a soul and what it might look like? 

Welcome to a world, or rather a metaphysical space, where souls may get over-run with idealised memories or ravaged by civil war between yourself and your dark alter ego, you know the part of your psyche with the attitude and massive AK47. A place where Depression really is a Black Dog sniffing around, along with his pals Lust, Anger and Contempt. They have plans to shape this metaphysical space, and the souls within it – Jamie Smith is the flawed ‘hero’ who, along with his co-workers, has other plans for this same space… conflict ensues, one that draws you in and keeps you guessing.

An enjoyable story which weaves together events and intentions in the heavenlies with happenings on earth. No need to fear any black and white moralising, Myers’ characters and environment are too complex and his writing is too intelligent for that. Recommended- along with the rest of the trilogy.
