The raconteur's commonplace book / by Phineas Amalgam. ; edited by Kate Milford ; with illustrations by Nicole Wong.


The rain hasn't stopped for a week, and the twelve guests of the Blue Vein Tavern are trapped by flooded roads and the rising Skidwrack River. Among them are a ship's captain, tattooed twins, a musician, and a young girl traveling on her own. To pass the time, they begin to tell stories--each a different type of folklore--that eventually reveal more about their own secrets than they intended. Nothing is what it seems and there's always more than one side to the story.
