As you might have heard, adult coloring books are all the rage, and now, Chuck Palahniuk is putting his spin on the genre: On Monday, the writer announced an upcoming coloring book titled Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color that will be out this fall from Dark Horse Books.

The book, which includes contributions by artists like Lee Bermejo and Duncan Fegredo (who also designed the cover), will feature eight new stories from Palahniuk, alongside nearly 50 accompanying illustrations of offbeat scenarios like an animal psychic coaxing a statement out of a fish that witnessed a political assassination. Check out a selection of interior pages below. 

This coloring book, out Oct. 26, continues Palahniuk’s recent forays into other platforms: Mostly known for provocative novels and short stories like Fight Club and Choke, Palahniuk recently penned his first comic series, Fight Club 2, and his first screenplay.
