The show is about to begin. Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. The carnival creeps in sometime after midnight, ushering in Hallowe’en a week early. A calliope’s shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. Two boys stumble on the first of its secrets – the merry-go-round that produced a grisly turn around of the wishes of those who ride it. And they’ll discover the secret of its smoke and mirrors, mazes and freaks and most of all they will learn to be careful what they wish for, it can and will come to pass and become a nightmare instead of a dream…Cover art by J.K.
