Coming Soon: Carnival of the Damned

My story called “Children of the Carnival” is due to come out soon in the Carnival of the Damned anthology from Evil Jester Press edited by Henry Snider. I don’t have the full table of contents handy, but I do know that I’ll be sharing it with two great friends: R. Michael Burns and Amity Green.

The general theme of the anthology is that of horrific things happening at carnivals, circuses, boardwalks, sideshows, and similar locales. If you’re creeped out by clowns, you’ll enjoy this anthology! If you’re downright horrified by those pasty-faced bastards, I suggest buying the book anyway as a flavor of aversion therapy.

My story is about a team of Hunters making their way through an abandoned traveling circus in an effort to save a little girl from the C.L.O.W.N.S.. The C.L.O.W.N.S. are people suffering from Cognitive Loss from Overnight Withering of Neurological Synapses, which is transmitted by cheap-ass makeup made in China. You’ll just have to read the story to find out how bestial humans can get when their higher thought processes are stripped away. It’s more than you think. Trust me.

When the book hits the shelves (virtual or otherwise), I’ll update you here and add it to my Short Story Publications page.

  1. Oh, man, it’s THAT story? That is some seriously warped stuff, man — and think about who’s saying so!

    Readers, beware. This one will leave scars. Good scars, scars you can be proud of, scars you can brag about later to your friends, but, I’m warning you — scars.

    1. It’s technically the sequel to the first story, which still remains unpublished. It takes a brave soul to read about my C.L.O.W.N.S., and even more courageous being to actually publish it!

      (And no, you don’t need to read the first story for the second to make sense.)
