Let’s start with a definition. Some may not be familiar with the term ‘dreampunk’. The thing is, it’s quite a broad genre, and the chances are that you are familiar with something that falls within it. For example, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman graphic novels would certainly be part of the genre. As a basic definition though, it can be viewed as a literary subgenre that, while at times similar to other ‘punk’ genres (such as cyber and steam), includes dream logic as an integral part of its workings.

What actually happens when we dream? We can only remember bits and pieces here and there, leaving the vast depths of the dreamworld completely unknown to our waking minds. We know it's important somehow, but we don't know why.

Urban Gothic is a deep dive into the unconscious dreamworld of Alec LeGuerrier, an archetypal warrior battling his inner demons for the fate of his soul. In the mundane world, he's a veteran struggling with PTSD, chemically subdued and cut off from his own dreams. But in th
