Off on a Dream and Other Magical Realities

For over forty years, Bruce Taylor has been writing stories that defy categorization. Since Bruce had a job working on an in-patient, locked psychiatric floor, he did not have to be concerned about writing to make a living. Indeed how he _made_ his living gave him a wealth of fascinating psychological theory and concepts that literally fed his creativity. Writing for the sheer joy and exuberance of creative expression, his work explored, examined, exhumed the proverbial "human condition" in a broad array of styles until finally realizing what he was doing was not only writing in a style later known as Magic Realism but blending it with Science Fiction and discovering how well the two modes of expression complemented each other. These stories, coming from a particular creative time also reflect the themes of the nature of love, how we become the person we were meant to be, and always the journey into the midnight--of the soul.
