Delirium gives the best speech: I was scared of him, now I’m sad of him. Aww, poor baby.
Desire has plotted for 10 books to get rid of big brother Morpheus Dream, now Morpheus is gone (but not Dream). Desire has to speak at the wake – and why don’t we find out what the big deal was all about? No, it’s just “we would have been happier if we weren’t siblings” Feh.
NewDream has to meet the family. We close upon the Endless sitting at the table, staring expectantly at the door. No meeting. Boo.
There’s a short story where a Chinese minister meets his dead son and then meets Morpheus. Nice.
Another story where Morpheus visits very-old-Shakespeare who just finished The Tempest, where a Man Escapes his Island, and Morpheus says that he can never escape his own island because essentially he -is- the island. My oh my, has he been planning to die since then?
