Three selected dream pieces from this series were published in the Hypertext Review Fall 2019 magazine: 

- Villains or I Dream in Science Fiction

- White Dove; and

- Napalm Deja Vu.


Two dreams, Geisha and Telemundo Soap Opera Star, were published in the Write City Review, Fall 2020 edition. Click here to read these pieces.


Tsunami, a dream, was published in Midwest Review 9, Fall, 2021. 


Reading Birth at the tribute event for Shawn's father, Rev. James Shiflett, at the Greenhouse Theater (formerly known as the Body Politic) in February, 2020. James Shiflett was, amongst other things, the founder of the Dream Theater at the Body Politic in Chicago and probably the inspiration behind Shawn's current work-in-progress. Birth was his favorite dream piece from Shawn's growing collection.
