Dream Country contains several short stories:
Calliope, in which an author buys the muse Calliope for his own personal gain, and is duly punished by one of the Endless.
A Dream of a Thousand Cats, in which a cat tells how cats once ruled the earth, and how the ability of humans to dream changed it all, but how cats can change it back someday.
A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which William Shakespeare and his troupe of actors stage the play for the faeries and Dream of the Endless.
Facade, in which a woman seeks relief from a bizarrely degenerative condition--she can change what her face looks like, but it degrades rapidly, and so she has to peel it off and grow a new one.

Throughout the book, the Endless are extended even further into believable characters.
