Johannes Cabal #3: The Fear Institute
For millennia, the Dreamlands - a world formed by dreams, but not a dream itself - has been explored only by philosophers, mystics, and poets. Now Johannes Cabal, a necromancer of some little infamy, is coming, leading an expedition to hunt and destroy the dread Phobic Animus, the very source of all the world's fear. They will encounter witches, vile abominations, and far too many zebras. And as they approach their goal, Cabal will have to face his own nightmares.
