Circus: Fantasy Under the Big Top

From award-winning anthologist Ekaterina Sedia…

Stories of circuses traditional and bizarre, futuristic and steeped in tradition, joyful and heart-breaking! And among the actors you will find old friends, be they sad clowns or free-spirited gymnasts, as well as new ones—mammoths, mechanical piano men, and things best not described at all. Come one, come all, and enjoy the literary show unfolding!
