SYNOPSIS:  “These colourful tales from the pen of John B Ford are meant as a warning to alert us to the growing threat we now face from those giggling ‘fools’ known as clowns. With strong echoes of Thomas Ligotti and Bruno Schultz, these stories take us right behind the painted face to show how the clown threat is ever growing and the sly manipulation of our minds is constantly taking place via the mechanics of false hilarity.

The stories are:  *A Treatment for Coulrophobia or The Nutcracker Suite and *The Transision in the Jester’s House.”
