Naturally the interest in the book for me came through following Tom's work with blink-182 and Angels and Airwaves for pretty much the last 15 years of my life. I've always admired Tom's work but his passion and vision to dwelve into other mediums outside his comfort zone is laudable.
Of Nightmares resonates with me on a nostalgic level through teenage love but also brings a powerful emphasis on our dreams and nightmares, whilst also exploring the pain in life of losing those you love.
Sure you can see the influences of a Harry Potter, Star Wars, Tron esque tale but I think that's another reason why this will capture the attention of a larger audience.
A worthy read and one that showcases Suzanne Young's versatile style as an author and a great effort for Tom's debut novel.
I would recommend watching the animated short and taking a look at the comic book series which opens up a little bit more around the Poet world.
There really is infinite possibilities with this story and with a feature film on the horizon, this may well be the origins of something special.
