C. Robert Cargill - Dreams & Shadows (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780575130111
In the debut novel Dreams & Shadows, screenwriter and noted film critic C. Robert Cargill takes us beyond the veil, through the lives of Ewan and Colby, young men whose spirits have been enmeshed with the otherworld from a young age.
This brilliantly crafted narrative - part Neil Gaiman, part Guillermo Del Toro, part William Burroughs - follows the boys from their star-crossed adolescences to their haunted adulthoods.
Cargill's tour-de-force takes us inside the Limestone Kingdom, a parallel universe where whisky swilling genies and foul mouthed wizards argue over the state of the metaphysical realm. Having left the spirit world and returned to the human world, Ewan and Colby discover that the creatures from this previous life have not forgotten them, and that fate can never be sidestepped.
With sensitivity and hopeful examination, Cargill illuminates a supernatural culture that all too eerily resembles our own. Set in a richly imagined and constructed world, complete with its own richly detailed history and mythology, Dreams & Shadows is a deeply engaging story about two extraordinary boys becoming men.

"I loved this book, the combination of familiar fairy story with a new dark and twisty approach made it completely engaging. It presents familiar creatures of myth but gives it a darker edge. having read Outside Over There as a kid and been mesmerised by the imagery of changlings this story presents the very thing that I feared. overall a fantastic read." - Google Review.
"Despite writing a modern fairytale, Cargill is a realist. His protagonists are not from happy, privileged backgrounds and they aren't strictly good people. I would say that there are no clear sides in this story, everyone and everything is morally grey. Cargill's world contains heaven and hell, as well as the world of the Faeries and the human realm, but as it is explained: it's not as simple as good and evil." - Waterstones Review.
" . . . a novel with talking dogs, angry genies and very, very drunk angels. It's also a perfect chaser for American Gods." - Starburst.
