      Jasper Fforde - Early Riser

      Fforde made his unforgettable debut with The Eyre Affair in 2002, which introduced the literary sleuth Thursday Next, the star of six further books—one of which garnered the Wodehouse Prize for comic fiction. Since then Fforde has kept readers laughing with the Nursery Crime series and two standalone novels. His new book, written with his inimitable allusive cleverness, takes a slightly darker turn. Winters have become so brutal that people can’t do anything but hibernate. Only the Consuls stay vigilant, to keep the sleepers safe from the Villains and Nightwalkers. In his first season, rookie consul Charlie Worthing is tasked with an unprecedented epidemic of bad dreams. They seem like nothing, but then the nightmares turn deadly. When Worthing starts to have them, too, neither he nor the reader can imagine what will come next.
