Marvelous wonders! Wondrous marvels!
Come one, come all to the Carnival Macabre, where the shocking and obscure thrives. See the exquisite oddities, avoid centuries old vampires, meet the Master of Fleas, hear the story of The Bone King, and become grateful you’ve never been bequeathed an old clown named Sorry. But do be wary on your travels, for if you reach The Goblin Market, you’ll know you’ve gone too far. Eleven extraordinary tales that will satisfy your morbid curiosities…and ensure you never look at carnivals quite the same again.
Featuring stories by Brad Acevedo, Valerie Alexander, Fox Claret Hill, Katerini Koraki, Alexander Pearce, Daniel R. Robichaud, Craig E. Sawyer, Erica Schaef, Eddins Sinclair, Sabrina Voerman, and Amy Westphal.
Edited by Cassandra L. Thompson and Damon Barret Roe.

Author Cassandra L. Thompson
Gothic horror writer and occasional dark goddess, Cassandra L. Thompson has been creating stories since she got her grubby little hands around a pen. When she is not busy managing a house full of feral children (human and canine), you can find her wandering around cemeteries, taking pictures of abandoned things, or in the library doing research on her latest obsession. She has a B.A. in History and a MLIS, but she ignores her degrees to write and run Quill & Crow Publishing House, both of which require copious amounts of coffee and Crows.
Damon Barret Roe
Damon Barret Roe is the pen name for a 30-something author obsessed with all things horrific and fantastic. She works for Quill & Crow Publishing House as an associate editor and is the lead editor on the gothic literature e-zine, 'The Crow's Quill.'
Damon is Latin American but was raised all over the world in a multicultural home. She channels this upbringing and her queer orientation in her writing, focusing on themes of equality and oppression.
Also, she really likes swearing.
