Like most short stories gathered in a collection I've read, there were some stories I liked more than others. Despite being terrified of clowns I do find circuses interesting and have always been curious about what exactly it is that draws people in, why some choose the circus as a professional career, and so on. I love short story collections like this because it helps me discover authors I may have never come across before and this collection ranges from the hilarious to the horrific. My favorites were "Calliiope: A Steam Romance," "The Vostrasovitch Clockwork Animal and Traveling Forest Show at the End of the World" "Making my Entrance Again with the Usual Flair" "Phantasy Moste Grotesk" "Ginny Sweethips' Flying Circus" and "The Aarne-Thompson Classification Revue".
