Solaris to Publish Dream London Sequel

Posted on March 27, 2014 by Flames

Solaris is very proud to announce the follow-up to Tony Ballantyne’s critically-acclaimed novel, Dream London.

“Tony’s Dream London was this poetical, phantasmagorical, satirical, and fantastical mash-up of a book, a real joy to read and a world I didn’t want to leave in a hurry,” said Solaris editor-in-chief Jonathan Oliver. “I’m delighted then that we’re exploring more of Tony’s extraordinary dreamscape with the release of Dream Paris.”

Dream London was the reality-bending science-fiction novel that took place in a magical look at Britain’s capital city, a city that we would recognise but one which changes every single day. This spell-binding modern fantasy that blended the familiar with the phantasmagorical in a kaleidoscope of adventure evoked China Miéville, Ben Aaronovitch, and Neil Gaiman – all wrapped in a design by celebrated artist Joey Hi-Fi.

Dream Paris continues Ballantyne’s journey into the weird by taking us to the metropolis dubbed ‘the most romantic city on Earth’ – but its connection to the lost souls of London is anything but idyllic.

Anna is doing her best: there are lots of other seventeen-year-olds who are living alone in the partially rebuilt ruins of London. She hopes that by keeping things clean and tidy and by studying hard she can keep the dreams away…

But then a tall, dark stranger with eyes like a fly enters her life. He claims to know where the missing people of London have ended up. He might even know the location of Anna’s missing parents. Anna can help, but to do that she will have to let go of what little normality she has managed to gather around herself and begin the journey to Dream Paris…
