LA Times Book Prize finalist Julian Hanshaw (Tim Ginger) returns with a new feast of visual imagination and emotional intensity that will haunt readers' dreams long after the book is closed.

"Crisp of line and hypnotically peculiar, Hanshaw deftly suspends us between dream and reality, as good comics do. As in life, the harder we look the more we see, and the stranger things invariably become." — Shaun Tan
"[Cloud Hotel's] panel layouts and richly colored mise-en-scène are impressively imaginative. As if Philip K. Dick wrote a teen graphic novel." — Publishers Weekly
