Burned out and drugged up, Alec LeGuerrier spends his days faking it, barely eking out an existence while living in a haze of confusion and medicated mellowness. That is, until he stops a gang of nightmarish oddities from killing a strange young woman with indigo eyes.
Dragged into the lands of the dreaming, he must come to terms with his brutal past and his grim imagined future in a land his body knows is real, but his mind refuses to acknowledge.
From “Dreampunk” Community Leader Cliff Jones, Jr.:
“What actually happens when we dream? We can only remember bits and pieces here and there, leaving the vast depths of the dreamworld completely unknown to our waking minds. We know it’s important somehow, but we don’t know why.
Urban Gothic is a deep dive into the unconscious dreamworld of Alec LeGuerrier, an archetypal warrior battling his inner demons for the fate of his soul. In the mundane world, he’s a veteran struggling with PTSD, chemically subdued and cut off from his own dreams. But in that other place, he can be so much more.
If you’re a fan of Neil Gaiman (especially Neverwhere and The Sandman) or other modern #dreampunk writers like Jeb Sherrill and Yelena Calavera, then you should definitely check this one out. It’s a quick read with a heavy heart, in the best possible way.”
