Tom Pollock’s ‘The City’s Son’ is set in a modern/futuristic version of London which is a battleground for strange supernatural entities.

I would like to make very favourable comparison’s to ‘Neverwhere’ and ‘Un Lun Dun’ and can’t wait to read more about Beth and Filius in the following books.

Tom’s website is found here. He is also active on Twitter and Facebook.

No trailer but I did find an interview with Tom.

I’m sure that nobody would dispute the fact that Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere has set the standard for all London Fantasy that has followed it.

Considering it was a novelisation for a TV mini-series I actually enjoyed the book more, this is a normal occurrence when the book came first but rarely the other way around.

The thing I loved most about Neverwhere is the way it has forever changed the way I think when I use the London Underground. I can’t use the tube without hearing ‘Mind the Gap’ and thinking of this book!

Before my Belgian boyfriend came to visit London for the first time, this was the book I gave him to read.

Neil has a very active website and can be found on Facebook and Twitter too.
