Wake Up and Dream by Ian MacLeod

Ian R MacLeod’s new novel Wake Up and Dream (PS Publishing) will be launched at next month’s FantasyCon.

‘Hollywood, 1940. It’s the Golden Age of the Feelies. All one-time actor and unlicensed matrimonial private eye Clark Gable  has to do is impersonate a wealthy scriptwriter for a few hours, and sign the  contract for the biopic of the inventor of a device which has changed  entertainment forever. What could go wrong? Already, he’s seeing ghosts ‘ but that’s nothing unusual. Europe is devastated by war and America is sleep-walking into Fascism ‘ but what’s that got to do with him? By turns wry and romantic, but always gripping, multi-award winning writer Ian R MacLeod’s latest novel is a dazzling collision of science, fantasy and history. Like the feelies themselves, Wake Up and Dream is film noir with Technicolor wraiths.’
