Edited by K A Laity, Noir Carnival includes one of my Roman Dalton yarns, She’s My Witch.
The blurb: Whether you picture it as a travelling fair in the back roads of America of the hedonistic nights of the pre-Lenten festival where masks hide faces while the skin glories in its revelation. It’s about spectacle, artificiality and the things we hide behind the greasepaint or the tent flap.
Let these writers lead you on a journey into that heart of blackened darkness and show you what’s behind the glitz.
Underneath, we’re all freaks after all.
‘A heady cocktail of freaks, witches, monsters and flat out scary clowns – just like a carnival should be!’
~Greg Smith, Editor Fifty Shades of Geek
