Item Details

Come one, come all! The Carniepunk Midway promises you every thrill and chill a traveling carnival can provide. But fear not! Urban fantasy's biggest stars are here to guide you through this strange and dangerous world. . . . RACHEL CAINE's vampires aren't child's play, as a naïve teen discovers when her heart leads her far, far astray in "The Cold Girl." With "Parlor Tricks," JENNIFER ESTEP pits Gin Blanco, the Elemental Assassin, against the Wheel of Death and some dangerously creepy clowns. SEANAN McGUIRE narrates a poignant, ethereal tale of a mysterious carnival that returns to a dangerous town after twenty years in "Daughter of the Midway, the Mermaid, and the Open, Lonely Sea." KEVIN HEARNE's Iron Druid and his wisecracking Irish wolfhound discover in "The Demon Barker of Wheat Street" that the impossibly wholesome sounding Kansas Wheat Festival is actually not a healthy place to hang out. With an eerie, unpredictable twist, ROB THURMAN reveals the fate of a psychopath stalking two young carnies in "Painted Love."

Some of they stories in this anthology I would rate between 4 & 5 stars though as with many anthologies a few of the stories did not warrant in my opinion that I finish them. However and I will let you determine those you feel are worth the read, totally worth it, for discovering authors you may not have heard of and enjoy or that one favorite author for which i picked the book up in the first place.
