Narcoleptic Adam Buckley is sleeping through his life. He sees people at parties he doesn't remember meeting, but who know him. Deep in London's sprawling Underground, he sees shadows figures beckoning him into tunnels not on any map. As Adam tries to find the secret to his own memories beneath the city, he realizes he is not alone. A madman has taken to pushing people onto the tracks, and it may be someone Adam knows. If only he can remember, before it is too late... Suggestions of half remembered life, and the encroaching threat of violence begins to engulf him, and everyone he knows.

He won the British Fantasy Award for Best Newcomer in 1993. He won another British Fantasy Award, for Best Novella (The Scalding Rooms) in 2008. In 2009 he was Guest of Honour at the World Horror Convention. He edited the anthology Gutshot, which was shortlisted for both the British Fantasy and World Fantasy Awards.

From Publishers Weekly:

Not for the squeamish, this dark contemporary fantasy explores the rotting underbelly of London, where desperate 30-somethings live out meaningless lives devoted to sex, alcohol and perversity. Adam Buckley, a narcoleptic who suffers horrific dreams, gradually finds the line between waking and dreaming harder to distinguish. Events from his conscious life take on a surreal cast. He meets people from his dreams on the streets of London. Ordinary events transform into Grand Guignol and his friends become obsessed with a new game that threatens their sanity and leaves them covered in unnatural sores. Terrified of the London Underground for reasons unknown, Adam dreams of traveling its many disused and dangerous tunnels, while a madman begins a reign of terror, pushing Londoners under the wheels of the Underground carriages. An unreliable narrator, who's often unclear on what's real and what isn't, Adam is the perfect vehicle for this stylish and bloody novel. Williams (Head Injuries) moves seamlessly back and forth between realism and the fantastic, capably bringing his tale to a murderous and apocalyptic ending. (Oct.)
