Lovereading view...

A stunning combination of horror, fantasy, thriller and gross-out humour The Pilo Family Circus is truly unlike anything else. It has been compared by reviewers to the work of Chuck Palahniuk, David Lynch, Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft, but Will Elliott is a new writer with a style unlike any other.

If you like Will Elliot you might also like to read books by Neal Stephenson, Stephen King and Joe Hill.

Synopsis

The Pilo Family Circus by Will Elliot

The Pilo Family Circus is recruiting and whether he likes it or not Jamie is auditioning. He never dreamed of running away to join the circus, but you just don't say no to a troupe of exuberantly sadistic clowns out headhunting.

Darkly funny and gleefully macabre, The Pilo Family circus follows Jamie's furious descent into the nightmare world of a centuries-old carnival where amid the acrobats, clowns, dwarves, freaks and fortune tellers, you may lose more than just your way...

This book follows Jamie's furious descent into the nightmare world of a centuries-old carnival where you may lose more than just your way.

Reviews

'Dark, wickedly inventive comedy... Awesome.' Maxim

'A darkly disreputable combination of horror, fantasy, thriller and gross-out humour... genuinely terrifying, wonderfully effective... will appeal and appal in equal measure.' Scotland on Sunday
