Carnies - get yours today

I finished "Carnies" today, and it entertained me from start to finish. Thematically it is very similar to "Anansi Boys" - it's about family, particularly brothers and their relationship with their father - it's also similarly paced, though much darker. It's wonderful, old school horror - if your old school is 7o's horror, as opposed to say early 30's weirdness.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Martin writes next. Until then I'll just have to make do with his short fiction.

Everybody needs a nice dose of horror in their diet. Get out there and get yours today.
