a fabulous adventure - Everything You Dream Is Real by Lisa de Nikolits

"An original, adventurous, and vital writer, Lisa de Nikolits holds up a cracked, kaleidoscopic mirror to our times. Everything You Dream Is Real thrusts readers into an extraordinary, disturbing future and takes them on a raucous, high-stakes, one-of-a-kind journey filled with hope, revenge, love, and tentacles." —Daniel Scott Tysdal, Wave Forms and Doom Scrolls


From the award-winning “Queen of Canadian Speculative Fiction” comes a futuristic, multigenerational love story and a gripping edge-of-your-seat thriller. Filled with a cast of loveable, unforgettable, and entirely unique characters, the novel is a fabulous, adventure-filled sequel to highly-acclaimed The Rage Room – or read it as a standalone. Mad Max: Fury Road meets a futuristic True Romance in a highly original and imaginative novel.

Eleven years after a world war destroyed the consumer-driven, plastic-based existence of 2055, a new order of players jostles for power. Streaky electricity, ravaging drought, a scarcity of food, and deadly Monarch butterflies make for an increasingly desperate situation.

Worlds collide when both Mother and Sharps’s children are kidnapped by the unstable plastic surgeon Alpha Plus and taken to The Fountain of Youth compound. There’s flowing water and beautiful people and beautiful clothes and an incongruous convent where children wear smart uniforms and are tutored by nuns. Lovely, until they discover that a subterranean sex trade funds the compound and the man who leads it is mad. Can Mother, Sharps, and the others take down Alpha Plus and his army? Or will they too become pawns in his bid for world domination?

Hilarious and at the same time poignant, Everything You Dream Is Real is a fabulous, adventure-filled sequel to highly acclaimed The Rage Room that will delight fans both new and old.

"Witty and elegant, dorky and weird: Everything You Dream Is Real is a fantastically riveting book, loaded with strange delights, scary caprices and an infinity of comic turns and twists." —Lynn Crosbie, author of Chicken and where did you sleep last night?

Thank you Debbie!

Would you categorize your book under “climate fiction”?

Lisa de Nikolits said...

Dear Stacy, I most certainly would and thank you for picking up on that. I often feel so powerless about where our planet is headed and the only thing I can do is write about it. So yes, you're quite right, Everything You Dream is Real is definitely climate fiction and I hope we never had to face the water shortage and heat that they do in the book. Great question, thank you!
