231 CHOYCE, Lesley Dream Auditor : Short Stories. First Edition
Indivisible Books, Charlottetown, 1986, ISBN:092030463X 
CHOYCE, Lesley. The Dream Auditor : Short Stories. Charlottetown : Indivisible Books, 1986. First Edition. ("An imprint of Ragweed Books"). Printed by Williams and Crue (1982) Limited. Pp (8),9-87,(1). 8vo, illustrated cardcovers.
"Lesley Choyce, a well known Maritime Canadian author, was born in deep space many years ago. After several aborted transmigrations, he awoke to bright lights in a hospital bed in Riverside, New Jersey. He was influenced by other extra-terrestrials who had gathered in that state for the purpose of making money. While visiting Nova Scotia in 1977, a vision appeared to Choyce as he surfed a hollow wave at Lawrencetown Beach. Certain that he was receiving instructions from his progenitors in another galaxy, he followed the directive to move to Nova Scotia and give up worldly goods. Self-induced poverty created a comfortable time-warp that has allowed him and his family to exist outside of time and space and the usual political affiliations. The Dream Auditor is a book of science fiction short stories that accurately describe alternate worlds not at all unlike the one we live in." - from rear cover.
The stories are: "The Dream Auditor", "The Day the Nurk Field Collapsed", "Buddha at the Laundromat" [with "The Bedford Highway U-Wash", "Don Giovanni's Auto Repair in Sackville", a 1962 Corvair, &c], "Privileged Information", "Thanotopolis Revisited", "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Writer", "Beaverbrook in Love" [with mention of the Antarctic Conversion Farming Centre], "Princess Thirty Moonbeams and the Hard Luck Bargaining Kit" [with a Halifax setting, a Cape Breton taxi driver and "It was a quiet day, almost-spring day in Halifax except for the fact that a truck from a greeting card company had overturned on the corner of Brunswick and Prince Streets and thousands of birthday cards were blowing around Halifax looking for people with birthdays.], "Boylan Briggs Salutes the New Cause"; "Renaissance Man"

On that side, a number of shiny-faced colored sisters are dispensing pop beer, greasy doughnuts, and gingerbread men to numerous cannibal little boys and girls who have come in with their parents from the country. Here an auctioneer is cracking his voice in the vain effort to sell some chairs and tables that have outlived their usefulness, while his stentorian tones are almost drowned by the quacking of ducks and the squawking of chickens, which are tied by their legs and thrown together in a heap on one side, to await the coming of a purchaser.
