Mystery solved: Last month, J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot released Stranger, a mysterious teaser for a new project, but they wouldn't reveal exactly what it was, letting the dark, cryptic, elegiac one-minute piece speak for itself. Now, a follow-up piece has been released explaining just what it's all about: a brand-new book from Abrams and Doug Dorst, S.
Abrams' first foray into publishing, the new novel from Mullholland Books arrives October 29 and is described this way by the publisher: "At the core of this multi-layered literary puzzle of love and adventure is a book of mysterious provenance. In the margins, another tale unfolds—through the hand-scribbled notes, questions, and confrontations of two readers. Between the pages, online, and in the real world, you’ll find evidence of their interaction, ephemera that bring this tale vividly to life."
