Reminiscent of the edgy, offbeat humor of Chris Moore and Matt Ruff, the first entry in a whimsical, fast-paced supernatural series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Sandman Slim novels—a dark and humorous story involving a doomsday gizmo, a horde of baddies determined to possess its power, and a clever thief who must steal it back … again and again

2,000 BC.

A beautiful, ambitious angel stands on a mountaintop, surveying the world and its little inhabitants below. He smiles because soon, the last of humanity who survived the great flood will meet its end, too. And he should know. He’s going to play a big part in it. Our angel usually doesn’t get to do field work, and if he does well, he’s certain he’ll be get a big promotion.

And now it’s time …

The angel reaches into his pocket for the instrument of humanity’s doom. Must be in the other pocket. Then he frantically begins to pat himself down. Dejected, he realizes he has lost the object. Looking over the Earth at all that could have been, the majestic angel utters a single word.

“Crap.”

2015.

A thief named Coop—a specialist in purloining magic objects—steals and delivers a small box to the mysterious client who engaged his services. Coop doesn’t know that his latest job could be the end of him—and the rest of the world. Suddenly he finds himself in the company of The Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome enforcement agency that polices the odd and strange. The box isn’t just a supernatural heirloom with quaint powers, they tell him.

It’s a doomsday device. They think …

And suddenly, everyone is out to get it.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The Everything Box is a mystical artifact of great power, lost by a minor angel many millennia ago. Fortunately, this audiobook has narrator Oliver Wyman, an Everything Box in his own right…With an impressive mix of dialects, accents, and timbres, Wyman brings to life a diverse variety of characters, including a zombie. The result is a rollicking audio caper packed with bizarre creatures.”

    AudioFile

  • “A rolling bouncy-house of a caper tale, The Everything Box abounds with quick-witted characters, snarky dialogue, and surreal analogies.”

    Christopher Moore, New York Times bestselling author

  • “I couldn’t stop laughing at the freelance poltergeists, inept angels, doomsday devices, mooning werewolves, and small-time career criminals in way over their heads. Highly recommended.”

    Mur Lafferty, John W. Campbell Award–winning author

  • “The story is fast-paced, very funny, and exceptionally clever. Kudos to this author!”

    Suspense Magazine

  • “Kadrey’s plot doesn’t depend on magic; instead, magic is the broth bringing all manner of delicious ingredients together in this wonderful stew of a story. This unusual urban fantasy is a delight.”
