The Silver Dream

By Neil Gaiman


Written by New York Times bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves with Mallory Reaves, The Silver Dream is a riveting sequel to InterWorld, full of bravery, loyalty, time and space travel, and the future of a young man who is more powerful than he realizes.

Dangerous times lie ahead, and if Joey Harker has any hope of saving InterWorld and the Altiverse, he's going to have to rely on his wits—and, just possibly, on the mysterious Time Agent Acacia Jones.

From Neil

Behind the Book

From the authors: Several years ago, Michael Reaves and Neil Gaiman wrote a book together. This book was handed to their children in manuscript form when they were the same age as Joey, the protagonist. Opinions were asked for and given, the book went through some revisions, and it was handed back to the children again. This kept on until its release in 2007.

InterWorld rose quickly to the New York Times bestseller list. It became a cult classic in several countries, with readers writing in to ask for more. The authors’ own children were among them.

A few years later, it was decided that InterWorld’s story would continue.

By then, Michael Reaves had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Typing is difficult for him, though he’s still working on a great many projects. Thus, he and Neil brought a third writer in to help write the InterWorld sequel: Mallory Reaves—Michael’s daughter.

The three of us met several times to discuss Joey’s fate. Words were written, plots were woven, and we discovered we all had the same story in mind. Mallory would write, Michael would edit, Neil would invite them out for sushi and introduce a major plot twist like “Let’s strand him in the future!” or “There’s a traitor in their midst!”

We, the writers, are ready to move on to the next part of Joey’s journey. He’s gotten himself into quite a mess, but don’t worry—by the time you’ve read that part, we’ll be working on getting him out of it. Time travel and Multiverses are funny that way.
