Andrew_Wild A_Mirror_Of_Dreams Book Gregory_Spawton
A Mirror Of Dreams is the first of two books by Andrew Wild which provide the definitive account of the intertwined stories of the six bands which led the 1980s progressive rock revival: Marillion, IQ, Pallas, Pendragon, Solstice and Twelfth Night.
Edited by Big Big Train’s Gregory Spawton and with a foreword by Prog editor Jerry Ewing, the book features over 200 rare or previously unpublished photographs and illustrations. 
Wild interviewed no fewer than 85 musicians and other participants in the early 1980s progressive rock scene. These interviews included most of the members of all the aforementioned bands as well as Abel Ganz, Comedy Of Errors, Galahad, Haze, It Bites, Jadis, The Lens, No-Man, Quasar, Trilogy and more. 
Additionally Wild, spoke with key non-musical figures such as Aylesbury Friars promoter David Stopps, former Marillion manager John Arnison and Nigel Hutchings, the former manager of the legendary Marquee Club in London.
“This is a book which I have long wanted to see written. It’s the story of how, in the early 1980s, a number of rock bands ignored the naysayers and fashioned a second coming for the much-maligned and misunderstood genre of progressive rock.” - Gregory Spawton
