When I wrote Circus Tarot, I was not sure how the story would be taken. From your write-up, I see it was taken as I desired. Yes, clowns are to be feared, they scare the crap out of me and part of writing this was to face my fears. However, my feelings have not changed about them. I think I was nine when I saw “the Greatest Show on Earth” with James Stewart as Buttons the Clown. This movie really opened my eyes to the “truth” about clowns; they are hiding something under all that grease paint and I don’t think anyone really wants to know what it is. However, this story is not just about psychotic clowns, there are plenty of other messed up factors to it; I don’t want to spoil anything, you’ll have to read it. I threw in a lot of campy flavor too, from Mary’s obsession with her hair to Darrin being a douche in general to the delight the Deuce takes in their art.
