  • For Americans, next week is Thanksgiving, a day devoted to reflection and gratefulness. (And also eating. Lots and lots of eating.) However, in light of… er, let's just call it a difficult year, it may be challenging for many people to come up with a list of things to be thankful for.*

    In order to make life easier for those people, below is a list of literary characters who are more or less in the same boat. If nothing else, you can be thankful that your day is not as bad as theirs.

    *Unless you're a Cubs fan. Cubs fans will probably be riding that high straight through to the next presidential election. Good job, Cubs fans.

  • What’s one of the most famous author surrogates been doing since Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s death?

  • Apple recently released its first developer beta version of iOS 10.2, and apparently it comes with some updated emojis. In response, we've come up with some literary emojis we wish Apple would include in its next update. Fingers crossed!

  • By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth! At long last Stephen Strange, Sorcerer Supreme, is poised to appear in his own feature film. Not even omnipotent Oshtur can say why it’s taken so long for the Master of the Mystic Arts to reach this milestone, because the truth is, Dr. Strange makes any story better. In fact, even the greatest novels ever written would be 1000% better, if only Doctor Strange were to materialize within their chapters. And now, by the power of the eternal Vishanti, let it be so!

  • The World Series has shown the world what a big Cubs fan Bill Murray is. To celebrate last night's win, Robert Schnakenberg, author of The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray, has rounded up ten big bad sports facts about the legend himself.

  • Here at Quirk Books we love a good lunch. And if we’re being honest, we really mean we love a good sandwich. So to celebrate National Sandwich Day – yes, it’s a thing – here are some of our favorite books paired with the food that makes us want to read right through lunch.
