A Mosaic-Novel

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 frighteningly intelligent."

"Zivkovic's unnerving gems cast the rest of the Leviathan 3 anthology into the shade..."
