The first scripted series for Gimlet Media, starring Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac, David Schwimmer, David Cross, and Amy Sedaris. Homecoming centers on a caseworker at an experimental facility, her ambitious supervisor, and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life — presented in an enigmatic collage of telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations.
Digital edition available for iPhone and iPad. Slipcased hardcover from Sudden Oak Books. Paperback from FSG Originals.

“A beautifully illustrated, hardcover set of two volumes … Proves that challenging, interactive, multi-platform storytelling can be compelling, immersive, and fun.” —Wired
“One of the rarest and most exciting things that can happen in publishing: an original story, created with and for the multiple formats it lives in. … The Pickle Index shows us a path forward.” —The Bookseller

The Clock Without a Face
(with Mac Barnett & Scott Teplin)
A book and a treasure hunt, with real emeralds buried in real dirt across the country.
“Part The Westing Game, part Masquerade, this board book mystery lures readers in with its pentagonal shape, dry humor, and pages of intricate details." —Publishers Weekly
"A marvel.… Clock is a house-shaped board book chock full of mystery, humor and stunning artwork." —San Francisco Chronicle
"Enter the world's weirdest book. I'm sure there are other words for it, but the term 'weird' sticks out prominently in my mind. So too do the words 'wacky,' 'hypnotic,' 'awe-inspiring,' and 'potentially hazardous to your health.'" —School Library Journal
Everything You Know Is Pong
(with Roger Bennett)
An illustrated cultural history of table tennis — science and seduction, geopolitics and eternal life, plus tales from the table by Nick Hornby, Will Shortz, Davy Rothbart, Sloane Crosley, and Jonathan Safran Foer.
"A history, a celebration, a support group, and an argument for ping pong as a pop cultural force." —San Francisco Chronicle
"There is full frontal nudity in it. I'm not a prude but it would have been inappropriate for this particular person to receive as a gift. I gave a zero for a review because I believe there should be more of a warning that that the book contains such images given the title is about what is basically a game most learn in childhood." —Linda M., Amazon.com
The New World
(with Chris Adrian & Russell Quinn)
Available for iPhone and iPad, and in print from FSG Originals.
"The most ambitious attempt I've seen at exploring a future where books lack physical form and are better for it… With The New World, Adrian and Horowitz have achieved a true melding of form and content." —Gizmodo
"The New World is the story of a difficult marriage and the love and stuff that holds it together or nearly breaks it apart until death and perhaps even beyond. ...Something wonderful takes place right in front of us on almost every charming, idiosyncratic, thought-provoking page." —NPR's All Things Considered
