Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/16/2013
Over the course of a year, something has altered London’s geography, physics, and inhabitants to mysterious purpose. Some buildings grow like weeds while others dwindle, mathematicians commit suicide, and iconic poetry rewrites itself. Within this shifting world, Capt. James Wedderburn has entrenched himself in his faults, content to live as an unrepentant pimp, until he’s approached and courted by rival groups who want him to play a variety of roles in an approaching magical endgame. Though the story is fast-paced with very effective escalations of danger, first-person narration muddles the appeal of Wedderburn’s progress from lowlife to antihero; his own account of that transformation isn’t so much unreliable as unconvincing. A lively supporting cast helps move things along, and the ways in which women occasionally cut through Wedderburn’s unpleasant sexist ideas are refreshing but too infrequent to feel like a real counternarrative. (Nov.)
