Ride out the clownpocalypse with some creepy books

Clowns are inherently creepy. Even if you’re not afraid of them, they’ve become such a staple in the horror genre that they’ve lost their innocent appeal and all clowns have been tainted by association, thanks to Poltergeist, Pennywise, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Twisty the Clown, this awesome Oingo Boingo song, etc…

Now more than ever, the menace under the makeup is being acknowledged, and these books are not going to relieve anyone’s mistrust. Not every book in this list is a horror novel, or even a novel in some cases, but if you’re coulrophobic, no clown is a safe clown.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
