Jaunty the Clown just wants to entertain families with lighthearted slapstick antics, but people think of clowns as terrifying, nightmarish creatures who hide in closets or under beds. When Jaunty, along with his fellow performers Guffaw, Wagon, Reginald The Pleasant Clown, and Bluehead are fired from the circus, they’re told that the world just doesn’t like clowns anymore.

Still, clowns have to eat. And since these clowns don’t eat children, to make ends meet they’re eventually forced to take a job in a popular haunted attraction, the Mountain of Terror. Instead of charming entertainers, they’re now scary clowns. A zombie clown. A demon clown. A creepy doll clown.

But the town is about to discover something more frightening than clowns. Because on opening night, millions of oversized spiders emerge from a cave and begin their deadly invasion…

From Bram Stoker Award-nominated author Jeff Strand comes an insane mix of shameless silliness and grisly creepy-crawly horror. Clowns Vs. Spiders. Who will win?


The last thing Tim wanted was to move to a small town like Crimson Springs after spending his entire life in a larger city like Nashville.  His dad was going to be the new police chief, so he didn’t really have much choice in the matter.  When he spotted the cute girl on the courthouse steps on the way in, though, he figured it might not be that bad.

Little did he know, Crimson Springs wasn’t an ordinary small town in the south.  It had a secret, an exceptionally dark one, and it was about to consume him.  Something’s not quite right with this place, and it is up to Tim and a pair of fellow outcasts to figure out what’s behind it, and to stop it before it’s too late.

Crimson Springs a lovely little place to die.
