I found your nightfish. It fell from your mouth or from your thighs or past that pink pink pip in the corner of your eyes.
I shall keep it until you come.

Dadu Shin’s ‘Rewriting Memories’
There’s reading & loving Moby-Dick, and then there’s CREATING A CARD GAME OUT OF LOVE for the words and richness of exploration and adventure and awe and wow, this is just incredible.
Moby Dick, or, The Card Game is on Kickstarter right now. In their own words:
In Moby Dick, or, The Card Game players live out the voyage of the legendary Pequod, the whaling ship from Melville’s novel. The name of the game is whaling, but who can say what other mysteries the sea holds? Hunt whales to earn oil and work to assemble a personal crew of sailors; they will be needed as the journey unfolds. Cooperate with your shipmates; the dangers of the sea are less daunting to the sailor with true bosom friends. Oil is the currency of the game and it will prove dear, but what is material worth in the face of the white phantom? When the time comes for the final chase, only one player will earn the right to say “Call me Ishmael”.
Great stuff. And looks beautiful, thanks to art from Havarah Zawoluk.
"For all of its class-bound preoccupations and the cramped horizons of its political vision, Fear of Flying does remain an important document, of both the literature and the emerging gender protest of its age. Its greatest triumph is the depiction of a female psyche battling the forces of loneliness while still yearning for pleasure. It’s a brilliant portrayal of how differently women experience existentialism, romance, and solitude.” - Natasha Vargas-Cooper, Bookforum
Admittedly, we sometimes get a little bit giddy for our new cover art, but we’re struggling to contain our excitement for this one from Noma Bar.
Somewhere between designing giant suits of mech armor and dreaming up the monsters of your nightmares, Guillermo del Toro found time to curate our Horror Classics series. Not to mention he also penned a fantastic introduction. Gaze upon Paul Buckley’s ghastly cover design at your own risk.
