Clowns: The Unlikely Coulrophobia Remix by (Unlikely Story 12 January 2016 / $10.95 / 3.99) - Product Description: Afraid of clowns? Those gruesome, bloody smiles, the corpse-white flesh, bulbous noses and feet... (Not to mention those treacherous daisies!) Worse yet, the mimes whose silence mocks while their lips form circles of feigned surprise, and whose actions imply worlds beyond our senses. Face your fears head-on with this collection of twenty-two short tales, taking on clowns in their myriad forms. Some clowns match wits with Death, with invading aliens, and with God's Law, while others write their own laws. Meet clowns who suffer for our sins, and clowns who turn that suffering upon their victims.

Unlikely Story invites you to enter the big top with authors Mari Ness, Carlie St. George, Cate Gardner, Karlo Yeager-Rodriguez, Cassandra Khaw, Evan Dicken, Chris Kuriata, and many more. But wait! There's more! Buy now, and we'll include not one, not two, but twenty-three illustrations by Bryan Prindiville, as well as an introduction by Robin Blyn. So slap on your greasepaint, grab your cotton candy and peanuts, slip on your wig of many colors and your most comfortable floppy shoes. It's time to run away and join the circus. (Or to run away from those who've joined the circus; we don't judge.) Don't be shy. There's room for everyone inside the clown car.
