REVIEW: Greasepaint & .45's: Anthology

J.D. Graves reviews Greasepaint & .45's, Edited by Ryan Sales, Published by Down & Out Books 2019, 244 pages. Since ECR's releasing a clown covered bit of pulp for our fifth issue, we felt it was only right that we explore D&OB's own clourophobia inducing anthology. Featuring the work of David James Keaton, Jeffery Hess, Lono Waiwaiole, Jen Conley, James R. Tuck, Chuck Regan, Liam Sweeney, Richard Thomas, J.L. Abramo, Grant Jerkins, Marietta Miles, Ed Kurtz, R. Daniel Lester*, Warren Moore, Patricia Abbott, and the inestimable Scotch Rutherford*. Now kiddies, follow the bouncing ball and sing along with this bizarre and wildly satisfying collection of pure mayhem.
