This is the worst book ever. Written when I was 14, it's a collection of short stories I didn't want to waste so I used a framework narrative to tie them together. Doug is a descendant of a Ghost which gives him the power to dream of other worlds and in doing so influence them. This mostly takes the form of him napping and seeing weird places. Until like in Pendragon (I was reading Pendragon at the time) his cool uncle guide teaches him his powers and explains he must save the world. *Spoiler he does (sort of). I don't recommend reading it unless you're really out of options. But if you insist... *Ignore spelling. Never bothered correcting issues. There are some swears (many for some reason) but not "mature" as in adult.
