I’ve never been one for tales of the circus or carnivals. There’s never been anything about them that has beckoned to me and sucked me in – until this anthology. With Carniepunk I finally got it. That immersive and magical feel of the carnival. I not only fell in love with the atmosphere created in these pages, I fell in love with the stories and the authors. I ended up with a whole bunch of new authors and books added to my TBR after this one (you’ve been warned! :P).
What impressed me most about this anthology was the breadth of topic, tone and frivolity. There are some dark stories in this one, some adorable ones, and some downright hilarious ones. You hear people say that there’s “something for everyone” and I’d say that applies to Carniepunk.
