Captain Jim Wedderburn has looks, style and courage by the bucketful.

He’s adored by women, respected by men and feared by his enemies. He’s the man to find out who has twisted London into this strange new world, and he knows it.

But in Dream London the city changes a little every night and the people change a little every day. The towers are growing taller, the parks have hidden themselves away and the streets form themselves into strange new patterns. There are people sailing in from new lands down the river, new criminals emerging in the East End and a path spiralling down to another world.

Everyone is changing, no one is who they seem to be.

Praise for Dream London

‘An unclassifiable gem… shares the surreal, absurdist whimsy of Alice in Wonderland, and Chesterton’s The Man Who Was Thursday.’
-The Guardian

‘As strange and unclassifiable a novel as it’s possible to imagine, and a marvellous achievement.’
-Financial Times
