Inside the ziplock bag are seven stories printed on eight party balloons, which one must blow up to read. Contributors are: Carmen Maria Machado, Percival Everett, Lauren Groff, Kima Jones, Amelia Gray, Rebecca Makkai, and Sarah Wisby. You’ll also find, inside a vinyl-bound book, a medically inexplicable hunger for forks, a world of unclothed single women, a bevy of dead dads infesting a city, a mystical power within the dismembered torso of a mummified bishop, and much more. Contributors are: Lesley Nneka Arimah, Jamie Figueroa, Namwali Serpell, C Pam Zhang, Maria Reva, Chelsea Bieker, Julia Dixon Evans, Zoe Young, and Daniel Gumbiner
