The addition of a novel based on Jasper Fforde’s best-selling Number 1 authorEvery winter, the human population has gone into extended sleep modeDuring these bitterly cold four months, the nation is a snow draped landscape of desolation of loneliness, and devoid of human activityWell, not quite.Your name is Charlie Worthing and this is your first season with the Winter, the Consuls, the clerks, but slightly off-key group of losers who are responsible for ensuring the hibernatory passage of sleep massesYou are an investigation into a viral epidemic of dreams that reject you as nonsense; nothing more than a strange artefact to burden the mind’s sleepWhen dreams start killing people, it’s disturbing.When you get dreams too, it’s weirdWhen they start coming true, you start to doubt your mental healthBut the teasing of Winter truth is never easy: You must avoid the Villains and their penchant for murder, kidnapping and philately, to make sure that you are not consumed by Nightwalkers whose thirst for human flesh can only be satisfied by the comfort food, and increasingly to the detriment of the least mythical WinterVolkBut as long as you remember to wrap warmly, you will be fine
