The most outrageous? The most unpredictable? These aren’t easy superlatives to make; however Carlton Mellick may well be all of those things behind a canon of books that all irreverently depart from the form and concepts of traditional novels and adventure the reader into a howling dark fantasyland of the most bizarre over the top and mind warping inventiveness In my opinion ClownFellas is his best work to date” Edward Lee author of City Infernal and Header“I rarely enjoy clowns which is ironic since I’v I am not a fan of clowns but what makes this book so great is that I was made to root for horrible characters Jimmy Bozo ClownFellas Tales of the Bozo Family is a collection of loosely connected six stories of a mobster family of clowns These are stories of rivalry the French are trying to take over colourful and original weapons exploding pies bullets that make people depressed or the ones that make people die of laughter and so on murders revenge jealousy betrayal black humour and weirdly enough even love the one that works for clowns anyway Info dumping is avoided through retrospective The alternate past present sceneschapters clear up many issues All the stories have one linchpin my favourite character in the book Vinnie Blue Nose I didn't really like Funny Business I hated Buggy Buttons Clowns are either born or made by using Happy Juice The unfortunate ones become monsters and end up in The Sideshow the part of the city where even the toughest clowns fear to enter That is only explored in one of the stories I loved itAnyway with the exception of Buggy's story I loved this crazy over the top clownish take on Mafia Provided by Random House Publishing Group Hydra via NetGalley

“Carlton Mellick III goes past silly through weird detours around dumb blasts through bizarre and gets to a place where the normal physics of narrative no longer apply You will never be the same” Cory Doctorow author of  Little Brother and  HomelandIn a topsy turvy world where clowns are killers and crooks Little Bigtop is a three ring circus of crime and no syndicate is dangerous than the Bozo family From the wildly original mind of Carlton Mellick III comes the short story collection ClownFellas an epic mob saga where life is cheap and the gags will slay youFor years the hard boiled capos of the Bozo family have run all of the funny business in Little Bigtop from the clown brothels to the illegal comedy trade But hard times have befallen the Bozos now that Le Mystère the French clown Mafia has started moving in and trying to take over the city If that weren’t enough they’ve got to deal In all fairness I did expect clowns in line of Pennywise from It than the clowns that were in this book I thought I was reading a horror book but it was too much humor for it to be called horror in my opinion I did like the Clown world and the characters It was just not what I had expected and also even though it had its charming moments I just couldn't really find myself enjoying the whole book Some parts were better than the other But I must admit that even though I felt that it wasn't my kind of book wasn't it in any way bad It was well written and I love the idea of a mafia type of family of clowns I really liked Little Bigtop and its clown population But I was just not totally taken with all the stories in the bookThe book has six parts every part is independent but they still are connected to the whole story You can say that every part have a different character that's the focus of the story I liked the first part best because it was a great introduction Little Bigtop and the Bozo crime family Earl Berryman a veterinarian is on his way to help a lion for Don Bozo The problem is that he is terrified of clowns Great story I love the ending The rest was also ok but the one that I felt really wasn’t that interesting to read was Funny Business with Buggy Buttons You would think that everything going bad for Buttons all the time would be funny but it just get’s annoying The last part the Wedding Day was also a bit weak but at least the bridezilla made the story a bit fun I was mostly uite tired of Uncle Jojo and his problems towards the end of the storyI think Vinnie Blue Nose was the one I liked the best out of all the clowns Captain Spotty was also alright and of course I must mention Bingo Ballbreaker he may not be the smartest of all the clowns but he sure is the hardest to killWould I read ? Yes I would now that I know that is humor than horror I just need to be in the right mood for And I do hope if it will be Clownfellas books that Vinne Blue Nose will be in it I received a copy of this book from the publisher for a blog tour at TLC Book ToursReview also posted on A Bookaholic Swede and It's a Mad Mad World
