Mike Allen's "The Blessed Days"

This story has appeared in

Two and a half years ago, Bryan and everyone else in the world woke up and experienced "The Blessings":  everyone soaked in blood.  Bryan, though, can do lucid dreaming; that is, he is aware and in control of his dreams.   With this rare ability to remember his dreams, he travels into the city of his childhood nightmares--a city he can't control.   Instead, he is overtaken.

This moving and imagistically scoring story treats how the trauma we feel after tragedies can be transformed into something far worse.
