Misha Handman started writing comics for his friends in elementary school, graduating to short stories and collaborative works. His debut novel, Shadow Stitcher (Edge $14.95) was shortlisted for a Rakuten Kobo 2020 Emerging Writers Prize for speculative fiction.

From publicity about Shadow Stitcher: Basil Stark isn't the man he once was. A reformed pirate and private detective, he walks the line between criminal and hero, living in the corners of what was once the island of Neverland, its magic slowly fading into the new world of the 1950s. But when a routine missing-persons case turns into a murder investigation, Basil finds himself pulled into a tale of organized crime, murder, unstitched shadows and dangerous espionage.
