Book Trailer: Neil Gaiman, Michael Reaves and Mallory Reaves’ “The Silver Dream”
Here at the O’Deary Library, we get just as excited as you do about books that are coming soon. Every week, we’ll bring you trailers for books – sometimes new ones, sometimes old ones, and sometimes even fan-made ones!
In 2007, Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves collaborated on the critically-acclaimed and fan-favourite novel Interworld, starring the heroic Joey Harker. Now, six years later, Gaiman and Reeves have returned with the next chapter in the fantastical saga: The Silver Dream!
This science-fiction series follows Joey as he hops across multiple dimensions and parallel realities, aided by many different versions of himself. It will take every one of them to unite and save not just the world, but all of the worlds across every reality!
In this very special video, Gaiman explains the incredible making of the novel, and how both writers decided to bring Reaves’ daughter Mallory into the fold to help out with some of the writing. And there’s even a surprise or two at the end of the video that is sure to get fans excited. Check it out!
Here’s the full synopsis:
“After mastering the ability to walk between dimensions, Joey Harker and his fellow InterWorld freedom fighters are now on a mission to maintain peace between the rival powers of magic and science who seek to control all worlds.
When a stranger named Acacia somehow follows Joey back to InterWorld’s base, things get complicated. No one knows who she is or where she’s from—or how she knows so much about InterWorld.
Dangerous times lie ahead for Joey and the mission. There’s a traitor hidden among them, and if Joey has any hope of saving InterWorld, the multiverse, and the mission, he’s going to have to rely on his wits—and, just possibly, on the mysterious Acacia Jones.
With a story conceived by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves and written by Michael and Mallory Reaves, this mind-bending follow-up to the exciting science fiction novel Interworld is a compelling fantasy adventure through time and space, in which the future depends on a young man who is more powerful than he realizes.”
