I know this is a short story, but when it ended, I wished for more. This could have been extended and I would have been very happy. Definitely creepy with a nice flow to the story. The clown was definitely terrifying.

I have read every one of Mr. Brant's stories, from Gehenna to Asher Benson, and I can honestly say that this one is by far one of his best! A terrific take on the current situation in America with the uprising of punks terrorizing people while dressed as clowns, CLOWN takes an already creepy concept and turns it into a truly terrifying sight. Elle the advertising agent takes a bite that's way too large to chew when she comes across a clown on the side of the road, thinking it's one on her ...more

Jason Brant has done it again!

I hated clowns before, now, if I never see another clown it will be too soon!

I can't even write a review to do this story justice. I can only say that I recommend it massively! I hope the author expands past this as, even though the story feels perfectly complete, I would love to learn more about the main the character beyond the end. As well as learning more about the clown!

Really liked this short story and wasn't wanting it to end so shortly. Never have had a fear for clowns but this made me have goosebumps. It was a great way to make readers second guess the 'creepy clown army of 2016'. Jason Brant is an amazing storyteller, wish I could proudly put the physical books in my bookshelf.

Jason Brant delivers in this homage to the current clown craze. He's taken the headlines, slapped 'em down, and given it a spin -- two turntables and a microphone.

It's a really fun read with some twists the reader will appreciate. Buckle up, horror fans, and enjoy the ride!
