OSC mentions this in his intro to The Crystal City, but I can't remember it from the earlier books. Can anyone tell me which book it's in?

Sure! While Alvin is imprisoned in Hatrack River (Alvin Journeyman), he relates some song/dreams he's had to a group of his friends. In my book it's pages 269-270. It's brief, and the first time through I didn't catch it either.

I believe this came up on the thread about the funniest moments in OSC's literature, too. I don't have a link on hand, but read the thread... it is very entertaining.

Page 270 of my copy of Alvin Journeyman. They're speaking about the song Alvin wrote and there is an extra verse about a dream he had. It deals with LoTR and he talks about how he wonders if sometimes he catches others' dreams.

Directly from Alvin Journeyman , page 270:

quote:
Alone with my imagining
I dreamt the darkest dream,
Of tiny men, a spider's sting,
And in a land of smoke and steam
An evil golden ring
