Description

When their six-year-old daughter, Susie, announces she wants to go to the circus, Mary and Darrin are filled with uneasy memories of World Circus, though, Mary would never admit that she still thought fondly of the charming place; Susie becomes obsessed with circuses, going as far as creating a makeshift tent in her bedroom.

Unknown to Mary and Darrin, World Circus knitted itself back together from scraps of paper and greeting cards stuffed into a box with the only remaining Circus Tarot card, Hanging Clown, which Darrin had kept as a memento. Ace of Buckets visits little Susie while she sleeps, giving her visions of the circus to entice her into the clutches of World Circus.

When Mary and Darrin return to World Circus to rescue Susie, they learn she is a Clown, but not just any Clown, she is the Page of Buckets, an imaginative, creative Clown with a flair for maiming and torturing her victims. Soon, Mary and Darrin are seduced by the impulsive world’s charms, drawing them tighter into its grip.

Charles W. Jones grew up in a town of 500 people–Shoshoni, WY. It’s the Center of the Universe, or so he thought growing up since it is in the exact center of the state. There were quite a few “characters” in his hometown, and it was one of those places that everyone knows your business. The thing that stuck with him the most was, how dark it was at night. Charles was a jumpy kid at night. Anything that moved in the dark, any sound made his heart pound in his chest. Thunder had the same effect. His first book, The Second Plain, was extremely influenced by his hometown. Most of it is actually set there. Darkness is a deep influence for him and has Shoshoni to thank for it.
