The Family Arcana Sweepstakes!

Jedediah Berry, author of the novelette “A Window or a Small Box,” has created an inventive new tale with The Family Arcana: A Story in Cards (illustrated by Eben Kling). Thanks to Ninepin Press, we’re giving away one set of The Family Arcana, plus the supplementary pack!

Shuffle, cut, play, read. A story about a haunted family, published as a poker deck and written to be read a near infinite number of ways.

A project years in the making, The Family Arcana is the portrait of a sprawling family bound to their decaying farmhouse by a web of passions and strange obsessions. Each shuffle of the deck reveals a new pattern of secrets, confessions, anxieties, indictments, and dreams. The family grows, shrinks, and changes, trapped forever in its haunted house of cards.
