"The Last Great Clown Hunt"

Gotta love this story from the November/December issue of Weird Tales: "The Great Clown Hunt" by Chris Furst. It's truly bizarre, full of humor...but not light fantasy at all, at least not what I think when I hear that label. There's something quite moving about it, about the clowns and their rebellion and...well, better you go read it instead of me telling you what it's about.

I think that story is definitely in running for best opening line ever.

Yeah, it sure makes you wish you'd written it first.
