Dead Clown Barbecue

Dead Clown Barbecue Cover

Available in digital and paperback editions.

Hardcover edition sold out. Audiobook coming very soon.

A man who finds a severed nose on a plate on his dining room table. A bell that can summon Satan (maybe). Casual Fridays at work that get out of control. A cheery outlook on the post-apocalyptic landscape. The final thoughts of a doomed skydiver. A girl punished by having to share a bed with her grandmother’s corpse. Revenge via baking a tarantula into a cake. A romance between two carnivorous genetically enhanced plants. And the lost tale of Fangboy.

These are only a few of the demented stories in DEAD CLOWN BARBECUE, a collection of twenty-nine gleefully macabre tales, seven of which were written just for this collection. There’s even a brand new one about a ventriloquist dummy. Those things creep you out, right? You’ll laugh. You’ll scream. Okay…you probably won’t actually scream, unless you already had issues before you started reading, but you might cringe and get a little spooked.

    Very, very nice collection. I’ve read almost all your stuff. All I can say: I wish you could write it faster.

    […] forgot to mention this story was inspired by Dead Clown Barbecue. I was working on something entirely different, then got irritated by an irrelevancy, then…wrote […]
