Dreamgiver is a fantasy novelette by Sean Patrick Hannifin. It tells the story of the life of Arius, a man born with the power to control what other people experience in dreams.
The first draft of the story was completed in March 2009. For almost three years, Hannifin was not sure what to do with it, so it sat there, lonely and forgotten, like a child's dream that never left the nursery.
In January 2012, Hannifin revisited and rewrote the story, but he failed to sell it to a publisher, so it is once again back to sitting there, lonely and forgotten, like the last whispers of a man who dies alone.
