|Sandman: 24 Hour Diner: The story picks up right after Sandman issue# 5 of Preludes and Nocturnes. Bette Munroe works as waitress in a 24 Hour Diner. She serves regular
happy customers and secretly writes stories about the patrons, dreaming of being a famous author. Dr.Dee, an escaped inmate from Arkham Asylum, has sheltered himself in
the diner, using the Dreamstone he has stolen from Dream to control the patrons of the diner, and cause madness and nightmares around the globe.
