Beryl Garp

My friend Beryl [pseudonym] shows up in my dreams as a trickster with a sometimes ghoulish sense of humor. That was partly her real personality, partly her work--nursing in a big hospital forces black humor on you, it's that or go crazy--and partly how she died, which a series of my dreams anticipated: see The Breast Bandit and Beryl's Dog Days. But then her own dreams anticipated it too, as in Coffins.

The dreams are presented in chronological order, not alphabetical; I wanted you to be able to follow the sequence from vague warnings to specific ones.
