The Sunday Books by Michael Moorcock, Mervyn Peake

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 Peake1s death, world-renowned fantasy writer (and friend of the Peakes) Michael Moorcock has written verses to go with Peake1s 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 Peake1s birth, which will be commemorated around the world on July 9, 2011.
