Praise For Clown in a Cornfield

“This party starts early, and it does not stop until all the bodies have hit the floor.” 
— Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrels and The Only Good Indians

"Adam Cesare's CLOWN IN A CORNFIELD starts as a fun and scary retro-slasher but then cleverly twists and bloodies its way into being a very new kind of beast. Rejoice horror fans new and old, and be terrified of Adam's everyday clowns."
— Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World

"Tense, modern and gory, Cesare's Clown in a Cornfield is simultaneously classic and fresh. This is thrilling, old school horror for a new generation."
— Madeleine Roux, author of the Asylum series
