Originally published at Unlikely Story. You can comment here or there.

As you may remember, a few months back we ran a Kickstarter to fund an expanded version of our April Fool’s mini issue, The Journal of Unlikely Coulrophobia. The Kickstarter was successful, and we opened the floodgates to another round of clown submissions. It took some time, but we diligently worked our way through the many excellent stories sent to us, and made some tough choices along the way. Now, we’re thrilled to announce the full line up for Clowns: The Unlikely Coulrophobia Remix!

The Table of Contents will include the five stories originally published in Unlikely Story #11.5: The Journal of Unlikely Coulrophobia.

Five Things Every Successful Clown Must Do by Derek Manuel
Perfect Mime by Sara K. McNeilly
A Million Tiny Ropes by Virginia M. Mohlere
Everyone’s A Clown by Caroline M. Yoachim
Break the Face in the Jar by the Door by Carlie St. George

Joining those stories are seventeen brand new pieces of flash fiction, plus a smattering of new clown facts (still to be determined -- we haven’t forgotten about the authors who submitted them, we promise!). Those new stories, in no particular order, are:

The Game by Mari Ness
Thou Antic Death by Kristen Roupenian
Mr. Boingo Saves the World by J.H. Pell
Melpomene’s Heirs by Evan Dicken
Stilts by Line Henriksen
A Distant Honk by Holly Schofield
Gags, Bits, and Business by T. Jane Berry
Clown’s Syndrome by Joe Nazare
A Silent Comedy by Cate Gardner
Queen and Fool by Dayle Dermatis
Clowns of the Creosote Plains by Chillbear Latrigue

An Argument for Clowning on the Sabbath by Jeff Wolf
Whaling with Clowns by Chris Kuriata
Clown Shoes by Cassandra Khaw
God’s Children by Jason Arias
Clown Car, Driven Once, Never Emptied by Karlo Yeager Rodriguez

We can’t wait to share this amazing anthology with you! In the meantime, keep an eye on twitter and this blog. More details about the anthology, Kickstarter rewards, and our upcoming Unlikely Academia issue, will be coming soon.
