Kevin Dawson was born in San Diego the day after Marilyn Monroe sang "Happy Birthday" to President Kennedy. Thirty-odd years later (some of those years were very odd), he began compiling "Bedtime Stories for Insomniacs." Not much happened during the time in between.
First there was, or were, "Fractured Fairy Tales." Then "Politically Correct Fairy Tales." Then all those "Shrek" movies. Now, just when you thought you'd had about enough, here comes "Bedtime Stories for Insomniacs" to take you where "Once upon a time" never managed to take you before!
