From the author of Pressure, Dweller, and Wolf Hunt comes a new 90,000-word short story collection featuring twenty-nine stories and original cover artwork by Alex McVey. The stories within this collection range from hilarious to downright disturbing, proving that Jeff Strand is still a master of comedic horror. Seven of the stories ("Pett Semmuteary" "Dummy" "True Hero" "Fangboy and the Troll" "Stop Stabbing Me" "Pregnancy Test" and "Push the Button”) have never been published and were written just for this book.
A man who finds a severed nose on a plate on his dining room table. A bell that can summon Satan (maybe). Casual Fridays at work that get out of control. A cheery outlook on the post-apocalyptic landscape. The final thoughts of a doomed skydiver. A girl punished by having to share a bed with her grandmother’s corpse. Revenge via baking a tarantula into a cake. A romance between two carnivorous genetically enhanced plants. And the lost tale of Fangboy.
These are only a few of the demented stories in DEAD CLOWN BARBECUE, a collection of twenty-nine gleefully macabre tales, seven of which were written just for this collection. There’s even a brand new one about a ventriloquist dummy. Those things creep you out, right? You’ll laugh. You’ll scream. Okay...you probably won’t actually scream, unless you already had issues before you started reading, but you might cringe and get a little spooked.
“No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand’s perfect mixture of comedy and terror.” - Cemetery Dance

About the Author
"Jeff Strand is a funny, deeply disturbed individual."—Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season and The Girl Next Door
Jeff Strand's bio used to mention his cat, but every author mentions a cat in their bio, so he's decided to quit doing it. Fight the power.
He's been writing ever since he was old enough to throw screaming fits in crowded supermarkets, though the quality of his work from that era is questionable. "How to Rescue a Dead Princess" is his silliest book.
If you're looking for something less silly, although not exactly high literature, you may want to try his Andrew Mayhem series: "Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary)," "Single White Psychopath Seeks Same," and "Casket For Sale (Only Used Once)." Also available is his obligatory 'giant ants attack the world' novel, "Mandibles."
Cemetery Dance magazine said that "No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand's perfect mixture of comedy and terror." They weren't talking about "How to Rescue a Dead Princess."
He checks his e-mail every forty-six seconds, and receiving e-mail from his readers makes him positively giddy. It's almost a little creepy. Write him at your own risk at JeffStrand@aol.com.
