Read an excerpt
A cycle of six thematically linked
stories, droll renditions of the nightmares ensuing upon misplaced, or (of
course) excessive, bibliophilia. A writer encounters a website where all
his possible future books are on display; a lonely man faces an infinite
flow of hardback books through his mailbox; an ordinary library turns by
night into an archive of souls; the Devil sets about raising standards of
infernal literacy; one book houses all books; a connoisseur of hardcovers
strives to expel a lone paperback from his collection.
"Zivkovic is, as ever, polished, and
"Zivkovic's unnerving gems cast the
rest of the Leviathan 3 anthology into the shade..."
