What would you do if you woke up and found yourself in a parallel universe under an alien sky? This is the question Zax Delatree must answer every time he closes his eyes.

"It’s welcome escapist fare in these stressful times"

After so many dystopian visions, Tim Pratt’s Doors of Sleep (Angry Robot, £9.99) offers some light relief. Zax Delatree is transported to a different world every time he falls asleep, and although they are not all benign – some are deadly, and there are people out to do him harm – on the whole this is a gentle, slightly old-fashioned picaresque that made me think of Doctor Who, or characters created by Douglas Adams.
