    Every Sunday on the Isle of Sark, Mervyn Peake would tell his children stories about pirates, shipwrecks, and the Wild West. He illustrated his spontaneous stories with delightfully vivid drawings of the characters in his tales, but never set down words to go with them. Now, decades after Peake s death, world-renowned fantasy writer (and friend of the Peakes) Michael Moorcock has written verses to go with Peake s drawings. This star collaboration--funny, surprising, and haunting by turns--is accompanied by an illuminating and elegiac introduction by Moorcock. Overlook is publishing "The Sunday Books" to mark the centenary of Peake s birth, which will be commemorated around the world on July 9, 2011."
