Description

Will Morgan is a creature of habit—a low-budget insurance detective who walks to and from work with the flow of one-way traffic, and for whom imagination is a thing of the distant past. When a job opportunity enters the frame in the form of the mysterious Mr. Dinsdale—curator of the ever so slightly less-than-impressive Curioddity Museum—Will reluctantly accepts the task of finding a missing box of levity (the opposite of gravity). What he soon learns, however, is that there is another world out there—a world of magic we can only see by learning to un-look at things—and in this world there are people who want to close the Curioddity museum down. With the help of his eccentric new girlfriend Lucy, Will will do everything he can to deliver on his promise to help Mr. Dinsdale keep the Curioddity Museum in business.

Curioddity is Paul Jenkins’ debut novel... exciting, fast-paced, and uncanny. A must-read.

Praise For Curioddity: A Novel

"A redemptive myth for a mythless age. Clearly Paul Jenkins is a pseudonym for Lewis Carroll collaborating with Douglas Adams." - New York Times Bestselling author Mike Carey

"A grimly funny little black book, as perfectly peculiar as a 21st Century mystery story should be."
- New York Times Bestselling author Warren Ellis

“Marvelously weird and imaginative, Paul Jenkins’ debut soars!” - Christopher Golden
