“The specifics of the eponymous carnival change from story to story, but a mood of the strange, eerie, and poignant suffuses the anthology… this is a quality compilation.” – Publishers Weekly
A labor of love for the past two years, I’m delighted to finally be able to announce the Table of Contents for The Myriad Carnival, bringing together fourteen stories and three poems to tell queer and weird stories from under the big top. The book is due for release on February 22nd 2016, under Lethe Press, and is available for pre-order.
“Roll up, roll up… The circus has long been that dream palace, intoxicating with so many lights and sights, sounds and smells. Sawdust, popcorn, strange animals, make-up, and the sweat of the roustabouts. The circus intrudes into the life of the ordinary and mundane and brings magic. Editor Matthew Bright invites you to the enjoy the sixteen attractions of the fantastical and dark Myriad Carnival.”
