Nociviganti = Sleepwalker
Jim Rankin is a sleepwalker. This means that Jim visits dream worlds while he’s asleep. The problem: A Gate was opened in the Fringe, a place where death, monsters, and such, inhabit and where Jim visits when he’s sleeping. If the Gate remains open, it will allow all the horrors of nightmares and hell to come through into earth as we know it. Five years earlier, before this story takes place, Jim and his young group of sleepwalkers, drunk on the wine of their power to cross over into the Fringe, closed the Gate. After their return to reality, many of them were killed. Jim left town.
