Hardback. Chris Robinson is an ordinary man, who since 1989 has possessed an extraordinary power to predict the occurrence of criminal and terrorist acts through messages communicated within his dreams. To the suspicion, incredulity and eventual muted acceptance of the police and security organisations, he was able to forecast accurately a series of IRA mainland bombing campaigns, including the 1990 Lichfield station shootings and the 1991 mortar attack on Downing Street. Through the process of 'automatic writing' - in itself a fascinating example of the power of the unconscious mind to by-pass the conscious - Chris kept a night-by-night diary of his dream experiences, and it was this confusing, scrambled mix of words, phrases and symbols that held the secret to his psychic ability. In this intriguing, frequently disturbing study into the nature of his mysterious 'gift', Andy Boot worked closely with Chris Robinson in re-constructing the vivid dream sequences (in which Chris was both observer and participant), and tracing his ongoing battle to make sense of the information he was receiving. Despite possessing influential contacts in both the police and the media, all too often Chris's powers of precognition unsettled those in the position of using his dreams to prevent or investigate incidents; and he would be left to question the purpose of being a largely passive part of a phenomenon that had overtaken his own life and seemed to give him little in return. How could it be a series of God-given warnings when the dreams were too complex to be able to change the course of events? Could his subconscious mind really see into the future?How close to madness was he? From the shock and exhilaration of his early premonitions to realising the implications of living with such dangerous knowledge, from fearing for his life as a terrorist target to the horror of seeing his dreams played out in front of his eyes, this book probes deeply into the mental, physical and emotional demands placed on Chris Robinson and the modern fear of the unexplainable his unique experiences aroused. 346pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. in F. dw.
