|Plot Summary of Sandman: The Dream Hunters|
|"This book is a retelling of a Japanese fairy tale, with occasional glimpses of Dream and others from the Sandman books. The book begins with a wager between a fox and a badger. When the badger leaves, the fox stays. The fox has fallen in love with the monk she and the badger played tricks on, even though she realizes she and the monk cannot be together. Although she can shapeshift and become a woman, she is still a fox and he is still a man. When she finds out the monk's life is in danger, she goes to the King of All Night's Dreaming for help. The onmyoji, a powerful man who is skilled at magic, seeks to trap the monk in dreams, so that the monk may die and the onmyoji live his life finally free of the fear he feels. "
