Original Back-Cover Description of ‘RAJA’S DREAM’: "In the depths of the past, in the village of an unknown land, the stranger arrived out of nowhere. He insisted that he came from ‘here’, yet everyone denied having seen him before. He spoke, yet all that he told of made no sense - people and places no-one knew, Gods that no-one had heard of previously. Then, just as suddenly as he had appeared, he disappeared into nowhere again. Years passed by, life carried on - to the village this wanderer did not return. But then, they began to happen, events that none could understand or explain. People gone missing for days on end, no hope left that they would be found. But when those who had vanished came back, each said “Raja, Raja . . . his Eyes!’, and not a word more, their sanity lost. It was then that the village remembered the eyes of the stranger, eyes with an unearthly look that could not be forgot. - Thus a young boy asks his father: “Why is one not to look into Raja’s eyes?” But the answer will not be enough and the boy must find out all for himself. ‘Raja’s Dream’ is no ordinary dream, and this story is no ordinary tale at all. - Dare you look into Raja’s eyes?"

An Extract: "Despite further questions his father is unwilling to say any more about “the one called Raja”. He says that he has said all that he knows. Curiosity was the living death of his friend and he learnt then that there are boundaries to what we should ask about. Those who are over-curious receive just punishment for their curiosity. “I deserved the same, but the gods spared me so as I would have to remember”. It is obvious to the boy that his father will say no more to him now, though he is intent upon asking him".
