Can't wait for the Netflix series! An entertaining and thrilling read! A genre bending collection of short stories that are fun and fast for today's audiences. Even though each story can be read individually, they all seem to be connected in the same literary universe. As the reader, I felt like a detective picking out clues, references, and call backs throughout the book and connecting all the dots in hopes of unravelling the many mysteries hidden within the book. I couldn't help but thinking what a stellar piece of storytelling Killer Space Clown is for a Netflix series or anything cinematic. Eli Taff Jr.'s skill as a writer delivers shocking, eerie, and gory imagery that will take you for a most unexpected ride. The book's themes and writing style are undoubtedly of the caliber of Stephen King and M. Knight Shyamalan. Can’t wait for the next book!
