Synopsis for "You Show Me Your Dream--I'll Show You Mine"

Two people are having the same dream, a young woman and a hired killer. The man tries to use drink to get himself to sleep without the dream but he runs out so he gets into a car to drive out into the night for more. The woman rises out of her bed, sleepwalking into the path of the car where the man panics at the sight of his dream's 'angel of retribution' and swerves into a crash. The woman returns to her bed and dreams the dream no more.

Notes

  • Dig Me No Grave (February, 1937) is adapted from the story by Robert E. Howard, which is considered part of the Cthulhu Mythos.[2] The adaptation contains some variations, including the change of some of names:
    • Only Grimlan is named John (in the original story, both Grimlan and Conrad are named by their first name). John Conrad is only named "Professor Conrad", and John Kirowan became "Dan Kirowan". Those changes were possibly made for the sake of clarity and to avoid the repetition.
    • The names-droppings mentions "Shuma-Gorath" (the first mention of that name -created by Robert E. Howard-, and later developed in Marvel comics as the lord of the Great Old Ones), instead of "Yog-Sothoth" and "Kathulos" in the original story, ignore a mention to the "black cyclopean walls of Koth", and replace "Yuggoth" by "Acheron".
