Product Description:

The Barnum Museum is a combination waxworks masked ball and circus sideshow masquerading as a collection of short stories. Within its pages note such sights as: a study of the motives and strategies used by the participants in the game of Clue including the seduction of Miss Scarlet by Colonel Mustard; the Barnum Museum a fantastic monstrous landmark so compelling that an entire town finds its citizens gradually and inexorably disappearing into it; a bored dilettante who constructs an imaginary woman - and loses her to an imaginary man

- and a legendary magician so skilled at sleight-of-hand that he is pursued by police for the crime of erasing the line between the real and the conjured.
