Creepy, creepy clowns

Picked up these two circus posters in Cambria, CA, eleven or twelve years ago. The one with the girl and the horse (sorry about the image quality) is by far the creepier of the two and would make a great cover for a book about a murderer clown.


  1. I hate that top clown. I hate him.

  2. why you have not updated? Vacation's no excuse.
    It's hard, isn't it?

    I'm starting again.
    That's me, all short and ready, in the background:

  3. Duane Swierczynski posted creepy clown photos a while back on I think you both have serious Bozo issues. And you're both amazing writers. What's up with that?

  4. You don't have to be too drunk or sleep-deprived to see a resemblance between that top poster and Seurat's Le Cirque .

  5. Sorry....I'm in Wichita, and getting onto the internet is harder than usual. I'm taking pictures, though, and if I can upload them I'll post. Lots of good Book of the Day candidates.

  6. The top photo would make a good replacement cover for Alistair MacLean's Circus.
