Sweet Dreams

By Tricia Sullivan

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

Dreamhacking. The ability to enter someone's dreams and influence them. Charlie uses her power for good, to help people - but not everyone is as nice as Charlie.

Charlie is a dreamhacker, able to enter your dreams and mould their direction. Forget that recurring nightmare about being naked at an exam - Charlie will step in to your dream, bring you a dressing gown and give you the answers. As far as she knows, she's the only person who can do this. Unfortunately, her power comes with one drawback - Charlie also has narcolepsy, and may fall asleep at the most inopportune moment.

But in London 2022, her skill is in demand. And when she is hired by a minor celebrity - who also happens to be the new girlfriend of Charlie's lamented ex - who dreams of a masked Creeper then sleepwalks off a tall building, Charlie begins to realise that someone else might be able to invade dreams...

Sullivan uses the tired tropes of paranormal fantasy and high-tech SF to explore ideas of morality and identity, and has produced a work of startling originality — The Guardian
Fast and fun, thrilling and chilling by turns. — Interzone
A fast-paced SF thriller that delivers the author's usual blend of convincing characterisation and well researched science. — GUARDIAN
Occupy Me keeps the pages turning and the wheels of thought whirring. It's a psychedelic experience, a wacky tapestry of an idea — SFX
this is science-fiction at its most surreal...the premise is brilliant — The Daily Mail
It's completely bonkers, incredibly brave and well worth exploring at ease. Occupy Me is bound to be one of the literary treats of 2016 so make sure you don't miss it. — Upcoming 4 Me
Conspiracies galore, questions about the nature of identity, brilliant evocative writing never detract from the unceasing pace of Sullivan's, a past Arthur C. Clarke Ward winner, futuristic fantasy thriller. Heralds a major new series — Lovereading.co.uk
Occupy Me is very funny and highly unusual, not least of which is having a main character who isn't just an angel, but a middle aged, black lesbian. It's highly imaginative, difficult to categorise, and frequently bizarre. But what it has done is inspired me to go and read Sullivan's other work because like Lauren Beukes, her stories certainly stand out out from the pack. — Fantasy Book Review
Occupy Me is a lot of fun to read, there are so many concepts and ideas thrown into the mix and yet it all works really well. The character interactions can be hilarious at times especially when they are trying to explain away the fantastic or when they are at cross purposes to each other. Tricia Sullivan has written a vivid story that is absorbing from start to finish. — Flickering Myth
This is truly subtle, masterful writing that has so much to offer...I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm a sucker for fiction that forces a reader to think. — The Eloquent Page

The Miners live on the Belt, a ramshackle ring of dwellings orbiting the core of a dead star, which they excavate for raw materials. These can be traded for food from the Raft, a structure built from the wreckage of the ship, on which a small group of scientists preserve the ancient knowledge which makes survival possible. Rees is a Miner whose curiosity about his world makes him stow away on a flying tree - just one of the many strange local lifeforms - carrying trade between the Belt and the Raft. And what he finds will change his world...
