DreamSpying occurs when a character dreams of something that is currently happening somewhere else. For example, the hero passes out and dreams they're in the war room of an enemy and getting details on their plot.

* ''TheWheelOfTime'' series, in an indirect way. The dream world has none of the people that the physical world does, but inanimate objects are still there so some of the Aes Sedai would read reports from their enemy's desks, though the papers would disappear if it was moved in the real world while they were reading them.
* In ''TheBlackCompany'', one character gets temporarily dislodged from his body (the enemy wizard was being an asshole) and upon returning discovers, that he can do astral travel whenever asleep. This becomes a major plot point.
