"New York Times" bestselling novelist Chuck Palahniuk presents "Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color," his first ever coloring book for adults. Bait is both the coloring book debut and the second short story collection for Palahniuk, author of "Lullaby" and "Fight Club." The 8.5 x 11 inch hardcover album contains eight bizarre tales, illustrated in detailed black and white by Joelle Jones ("Lady Killer"), Lee Bermejo ("The Suiciders"), Duncan Fegredo ("Hellboy"), and more. Each story is paired with pieces of colorable original art, nearly 50 in all! Palahniuk invites readers to collaborate on this unprecedented hardcover edition: "Maybe between your colors, the artists' designs, and my stories we can create something that endures. Something worth keeping. Let's create a well-bound book that can sit on any shelf and be available for a new generation to discover and enjoy." Palahniuk's short stories are provocative and not for the faint of heart. (His public readings are notorious for making audience members pass out.) Kirkus Reviews described Palahniuk's 2015 short story collection "Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread" as "Pathos and panic and penitence from one of the darkest and most singular minds in contemporary American lit." "Bait" continues in that vein with stories about: A passenger on the Titanic who finds a surgical solution to the obstacle of "women and children first." A Hollywood star whose fading brand faces a viral (and scatological) internet campaign. An animal psychic who coaxes a statement from a fish that witnessed a political assassination. Increasingly terrible birthday gifts that place a girl at the center of an extinction-level event. Reviews for 2015's "Make Something Up" "Palahniuk finds sincerity among his characters even in disreputable occurrences."-- "Publishers Weekly" "He makes it absolutely clear that he's still the man who wrote 'Guts, ' the infamous story that made fans pass out at readings." --"Kirkus Reviews" Reviews for "Fight Club 2: " "At turns deeply poignant and very funny, Palahniuk's freakish fables capture a twisted zeitgeist and add an oddly inspirational and subversive voice to the contemporary canon . . . In the post-9/11 present, a hyperactive, Internet-obsessed, war- and recession-weary America apparently needs Tyler again."--"The Atlantic" "Chuck Palahniuk's "Fight Club 2" is as much a kinetic read as it is a pivotal watermark for the comic industry to receive such a high-profile cross-media debut. We are Jack's eager eyes."--"Paste" "New York Times" bestselling novelist Chuck Palahniuk presents "Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color," his first ever coloring book for adults.

The Kid Looks Back is a collection of sixty-eight stories that cover a wide range of topics. I hope that his book will be a gentle hiding place where you can go to get away from something, return to something or go where you have never been. Some of these stories are true. Others are factually true, although bit embellished. Others are outright fabrications. Most look back to a kinder, mellower time. Digging for worms, swimming in a pond, using an outhouse or wading in a river may bring gross evaluations from our urbanized cousins. I hope that this book introduces them to life – with a smile. Most of the stories have a message. Many are simply humorous. Entertainment is the motive. Carefree is the mood. Try to find yourself within these pages. May the beak of reality crack your comfort shell. Start anywhere. Finish anytime. Enjoy!

Herland And Selected Stories

At the turn of the twentieth century, Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a celebrity—acclaimed as a leader in the feminist movement and castigated for her divorce, her relinquishment of custody of her daughter, and her unconventional second marriage. She was also widely read, with stories in popular magazines and with dozens of books in print. Her most famous short story, the intensely personal “The Yellow Wallpaper,” was read as a horror story when first published in 1892 and then lapsed into obscurity before being rediscovered and reinterpreted by feminist scholars in the 1970s. Noted anthologist Barbara Solomon has put together a remarkable collection of Gilman’s fiction, which includes twenty short stories and the complete text of Herland, the landmark utopian novel that remained unavailable for more than sixty years. From “The Unexpected,” printed in Kate Field’s Washington in 1890, to such later tales as “Mrs. Elder’s Idea,” published in Gilman’s own periodical, The Forerunner, readers can again encounter this witty, original, and audacious woman who dared to challenge the status quo and who created fiction that continues to be fresh and timeless. Edited and with an Introduction by Barbara H. Solomon
