Carol O'Neir's Hundreth Dream is one of the stories in Mixed Magics. The story revolves around Carol Oneir, the daughter of Oneir, who has the ability to make dreams, which wizards bottle and sell. When she suddenly loses her dreaming ability, her father turns to his old friend Christopher Chant (who is on holiday in the south of France). As the story progresses, it is eventually revealed that the main characters- Francis, Martha, Paul and the other members of the cast of thousands- have gone on strike because they are appaled at the "working conditions". After Carol hears about this, the cast of thousands enters World Twelve-A.
