FREAK SHOW GROWS

Desperado Publishing has increased the story page count and cover price of its just released novella, Freak Show, by Bruce Jones and Bernie Wrightson, by adding three complete black-and-white short stories.

The additional short stories all feature words and pictures by Wrightson, and the total package is wrapped in a color cover featuring all-new Wrightson art. The cover price is $14.95, up two dollars from its original solicited price.

Here's how the book is described:

"In Freak Show, a humble man, lonely at heart, seeks out the rejected 'special people; of the world, taking these misbegotten outcasts under his wing in a traveling show of oddities, performing from town to town. In his kind, yet lonely journey, this man of compassion also seeks something else, a mate -- someone to love -- willing to return all the kindness he¹s shown his less fortunate troupe of oddities. When he finds that someone, his life is complete...until her pregnancy. She gifts him with a 'special' child of his own. His fury at God and the world for such a betrayal, drive him to a state of revenge and hatred that reveals his true inner self -- a self his traveling carnival of 'special people' wreak their own twisted revenge upon."

"In speaking to the retail community, I was told that it would make sense, in their opinion, if we added some extra material to the Freak Show package to beef it up a bit and give readers more than just the one story," Joe Pruett, Desperado publisher said. "Unfortunately, this meant that I'd have to raise the cover price a bit, but I was reassured that this wouldn't be a problem if the material I added was top quality. I think I'm pretty safe then, because what¹s been added is amazing."
