Product description

Review

This debut horror novel has all the trappings of a good, popcorn-scented slasher flick. Reluctant readers will find this a quick and fun read. They will definitely appreciate the stress-relieving escapism. Suggest it to readers looking for Stephen King read-alikes and fans of the Friday the 13th franchise.--YALSA Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers Nominee

Clown in a Cornfield is a true-to-form classic horror story, complete with blood and gore, chainsaws and crossbows, and abundant deaths. This is a truly fun piece of escapism for teens who are okay with slasher-flick violence. --YALSA's Best Fiction for Young Adults Nominee

This pitch-perfect horror experience can be enjoyed as pure entertainment for its fun retro slasher style, but teen readers will also fully appreciate the sly underlying social commentary.--Booklist (starred review)

Clown in a Cornfield delivers everything the title promises--and more. More carnage, more mayhem and a sly social commentary that cuts to the bone. A must-read for horror fans.--Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of Final Girls

"This party starts early, and it does not stop until all the bodies have hit the floor." --Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrels and The Only Good Indians

A pulse-pounding thrill ride for retro-horror fans who are not faint of heart (or stomach).--Kirkus Reviews

Adam Cesare's CLOWN IN A CORNFIELD starts as a fun and scary retro-slasher but then cleverly twists and bloodies its way into being a very new kind of beast. Rejoice horror fans new and old, and be terrified of Adam's everyday clowns.--Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World

Cesare's cinematic eye means the set-pieces are loud, brash, and dramatic (it's no surprise that there's a film adaptation in the works). Given what we are all experiencing now, there's something wonderfully pleasing, nostalgic, and even therapeutic spending several hours cheering on Quinn - smart and brave -- as she takes on [...] killer clowns. --Locus Magazine

Tense, modern and gory, Cesare's Clown in a Cornfield is simultaneously classic and fresh. This is thrilling, old school horror for a new generation.--Madeleine Roux, author of the Asylum series

The immersive atmosphere, nail-biting action sequences, and satisfying social commentary results in a thoughtful, campy, and just-plain-fun read for horror fans, especially those who crave a retro feel but still want a story set firmly in the present.--Library Journal (starred review)
