Read an Excerpt

Unrelenting precipitation hung over San Francisco like a moist cloud, a heat fog found inside an oven that’s been left on too long. For the last ten days, the temperature had remained lodged in the nineties and was showing no signs of weakening. In one decayed section of town, a series of bus graveyards filled block after block, the stripped carcasses bleeding rust. German shepherds patrolled the lots and kept vagrants and runaways from living inside the buses, which technically were still city property. At the end of the graveyards stood a shabby apartment building, a memorial to this dying place.

This is, quite possibly, the GREATEST set of stories ever compiled. Del James and W. Axl Rose did an awsome job on this.
