The Barnum Museum : Stories, Paperback / softback Book

The Barnum Museum : Stories Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The Barnum Museum is a combination waxworks, masked ball, and circus sideshow masquerading as a collection of short stories.

Within its pages, note such sights as: a study of the motives and strategies used by the participants in the game of Clue, including the seduction of Miss Scarlet by Colonel Mustard; the Barnum Museum, a fantastic, monstrous landmark so compelling that an entire town finds its citizens gradually and inexorably disappearing into it; a bored dilettante who constructs an imaginary woman - and loses her to an imaginary man! - and a legendary magician so skilled at sleight-of-hand that he is pursued by police for the crime of erasing the line between the real and the conjured.
