Clowns: The Unlikely Coulrophobia Remix is Unlikely Story‘s first print anthology, featuring twenty-two flash fiction tales penned by many of today’s rising stars of the speculative fiction genre, including Mari Ness, Cassandra Khaw, Cate Gardner, Evan Dicken, and Charles Payseur, among others. Along with a smattering of mimes and jesters, this anthology tackles clowns in all their forms. Each story is accompanied by a unique black and white illustration, and the stories are interspersed with ‘true facts’ about clowns. By turns funny, heartbreaking, frightening, and bittersweet, the stories gathered in this anthology showcase a diversity of styles and approaches to the theme, offering something to entice every reader.
