Illustration by Alan GriswoldThe stork has delivered a brand-spanking-new deluxe edition of deliciously odd stories from Portland's brilliant writer and performer Frayn Masters. Pants All Night is both surprising and compulsively readable. Her narrations shift easily from the realistic to the fantastical—a fetus is traded from womb to womb via cooler, a surly Guatemalan bullies her family and a dish sponge hooks a wife. Bite through a vision that is twisted, sublime and heart-warming all at the same time. Order a copy or read more about it.

Jessica Mitford drawn by Sam MacklinEnjoy the dark comedy of the The Mitford Diaries, fictional diaries from the most infamous family of the British aristrocracy. Jessica is a tough teenaged Communist. She dreams of running away to fight Fascists like her sisters Unity and Diana who hang around Berlin cafes trying to meet Hitler.

Draco malfoy by Kym ShankNumber One Fan delves into obsessions both popular and obscure. Margaret Sullivan examines rabid Jane Austen readers while Brian Joseph Davis discovers the zen mastery of Don Knotts. Read excerpts and the table of contents here. Only 110 copies were made and no two are alike.

Saugus to the Sea is a brilliant novel by author, musician and filmmaker Bill Brown. It's available as a very nifty-looking trade paperback. Bill's novel chronicles life in underground L.A. Amid the glitz of Tinseltown is a hidden world of critical mass bike rides, straight-edge punk gigs, guerrilla gardening, time traveling monkeys and desert towns where the Blessed Virgin Mary still puts in an appearance.
