Internationally bestselling author of Griffin & Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence (Raincoast/Chronicle Books, 1991 / 2016), Nick Bantock, returns with his newest literary mystery The Corset & The Jellyfish (Tachyon Publications $28.95). The book is an assemblage of his illustrated stories. Each story, the origin of which is unknown, totals exactly one hundred words and tells of strange creatures that slip through alleyways, bypassing eerie streets that swallow people whole. These delightful “drabbles,” can be read in any sequence. But taken altogether, these stories may constitute a puzzle that no one has been able to solve thus far. Could there be one missing story? 9781616964078
