“Painted Love”

Rob Thurman


Love is a bitch.

There’s no getting around it.

But I’ll get to that later.

First . . . first came Bartholomew.

On any given day someone can be a hundred different people. I’m not talking Sybil here, and no voices in the head, but no one is singular within themselves. They’re good . . . help a little old lady with her groceries. They’re bad . . . steal a magazine from a newsstand. Sometimes they’re smart, sometimes stupid. Sometimes loving as they give their child a kiss on the cheek and murderous in the next minute when they jack a car and kill a man in the process. People are people. Hateful and peaceful. Content and miserable. Honest and deceitful. With all of that inside fighting for control every minute of the day, it’s a wonder everybody’s not banging their heads against the wall. And those around you—even you yourself—aren’t ever quite sure what they’re going to get from moment to moment.

I knew that just like I knew from watching him that Bartholomew was nothing like that—the exception that proved the rule. Bartholomew wasn’t at war with himself or his darker emotions. With Bartholomew it was all about Bartholomew. What he wanted and what he’d do to get it. Love wasn’t a bitch to him, because he loved himself inside and out.

All the best sociopaths do.

It wasn’t just my luck to hook up with one—it was an occupational hazard. I’d seen more of the world than most and it wasn’t by drifting. I always had a plan. I’d long found that the best way to travel was to find someone who was going somewhere you wanted to be, stick with them, and keep your mouth shut. You’d be surprised how little they minded, mostly because if you picked the right ones, they were entirely self-centered. They were generally puzzled to one day realize they’d picked up a buddy, wonder how you’d slithered in under their radar and become a fixture in their lives. But that’s another thing about people: they didn’t want to ask too many questions. Some people didn’t like to look stupid, some people didn’t like to make waves, and some people—the smartest people—generally didn’t want to know the answer.

And the ones like Bartholomew—they ultimately couldn’t bring themselves to believe someone had put one over on them. After all, that’s what they did, not what was done to them.

I was good at it, what I did. Maybe you could say I used people, but I did it out of harmless curiosity. My talent for hanging around by blending into the background was useful, but I didn’t put it to the same use Bartholomew did his. He worked at a carnival, which was what had interested me in the beginning. I’d seen a lot of things as I made my way around the world, and a carnival was more or less next on my list. I came across Bart on a week away, whoring and drinking mostly, heard his glib stories about where he worked, and there found my opportunity.

His ego was my ticket to ride.

When he returned to the carnival with me tagging along, I saw his work. I don’t mean him giving away stuffed prizes or running a few rides or ushering people into a mirrored maze, although he did do all those things. Nope, Bart’s true occupation was hurting people. Sometimes for entertainment, sometimes for profit, but always with the zeal you find in those who truly love their jobs.

Bart . . . he couldn’t get enough of his job.

Not that it was my problem. I wanted to see what the life in a carnival was like, and that’s what I would do. If Bart liked to play mind games with gullible people, it was their fault that they weren’t a little sharper, now, wasn’t it? Or at the very least it wasn’t my fault. I was just along for the ride. Speaking of . . .

His carnival was one helluva ride.

It had been settled for two weeks in one small scrubby field on long-bladed grass that cut like knives, and spectators’ feet had stomped its grounds down into dry, pitted dirt. There was a Ferris wheel that made the most god-awful sound as it creaked up and around. It was the groan and rattle of a dragon’s dying breath—the last dragon in the darkest of ages, its final breath heated by fire and coppery with sacrificial blood somehow caught and bottled to run some unimaginable, infernal machine. Only instead of all that, it ended up wheezing its way through a garishly lit wheel that, instead of grinding their bones to dust, spun screaming children along in paroxysms of delight. That dead dragon was probably embarrassed by it all.

I liked it.

Then there was the carousel. If you’ve ever read any book, seen any movie, heard any carnie tale, you know carousels are where the very best and worst things happen. Depending on which way you spin, depending on what animal you choose to ride, Fate either kisses you on the lips or slits your throat. I loved those stories, because they got it right. That’s exactly how fate was: capricious as fuck. She would ignore the biggest decision in a person’s life yet gleefully wipe your slate in a fatal do-over on something as innocent and simple as a merry-go-round.

Perched proudly upon it was one particularly shifty-looking red-and-black-striped tiger with faceted red glass eyes that glittered like bloody tears. I wondered where he’d take you if you climbed in his saddle. I doubted it was Disneyland.

The maze of mirrors: now, that was creepy, flat-out. If you looked just the right way, took the fastest glimpse over your shoulder, you could see your reflections turn to shadowed doppelgängers with sharp teeth, hungry smiles, shadowed holes for eyes, and taloned hands pushing against the glass that locked them away. Hardly anyone did, though, look just right. But I did, each time grinning and giving a friendly wave to my predatory images across a hundred gleaming surfaces. The clawed hands waved back and, blinking in curiosity, the eyes of soot and silver would give me a wink. You caught us. Point to you.

I wasn’t superstitious and, no, not crazy. I’d traveled the world. I kept my eyes open and I’d seen things. Boring things, astounding ones, and everything in between. What I saw in the carnival was nothing unbelievable. It was more of a pitcher plant where careless flies were caught in the sticky nectar and slowly slid down to be devoured by digestive juices. If you weren’t careless, you’d be fine. If you were careless . . . hey, carnivals weren’t the only thing in the world that would eat you. In fact, after several days of following Bart through the maze of booths and rides, I’d come to the conclusion that carnivals weren’t built. They grew. They accumulated, like a feast of flies on a hidden carcass. One day there was an empty field, the next the carnival bloomed like an ebony poppy. Eventually people—and things—came, populated it, and there you go.

A slow-moving predator came to life.

Some people were carnival people. They knew the carnival and the carnival knew them. They belonged. They were black poppies, too, only on a smaller scale.

Others were just people: good, bad, and indifferent, but all of them blind. They did the work, though, and the carnival needed them. They weren’t the careless type, living the nomadic life, and they survived. I wondered what it was like to be blind like them. I’d seen a good deal of the world, but even with my first step, I’d always been able to see.

“Bart, do you have change for a fifty? Oh, look at your new friend. He’s cute.” The girl smiled at me. Becca? Yeah, Becca was her name. I’d heard it in passing the day before. She worked the psychic booth with her sister, and if she was older than fourteen, I’d need to see a birth certificate as proof.

I tried hard not to smirk back at her smile. Hey, I was cute. I worked on being cute. People, even self-centered, oblivious, or gullible people, didn’t want someone with serial killer vibes following them around.

Bart smiled back at her, so friendly and affable that manufactured goodwill oozed out of his pores. “Doodle? He’s all right. He hitched up with me on vacation. I thought I’d show him the sights.”

It was a joke to him. Bart’s kind didn’t do anything for anybody, but Becca liked me, and Bart . . . Bart liked underage girls. And underage boys. Vulnerable women. People humiliated and naked, bound in chains. And that was only the top layer of porn stuffed in his footlocker. I didn’t want to know what the second, third, or fourth layer showed.

“Change for a fifty, yeah? Anything for you, sweetheart.”

Becca was young, with long waves of hair dyed cotton candy lavender, round blue eyes, small white teeth that showed when she laughed, and exactly five freckles spread across her nose like a spray of cinnamon chips on a Christmas cookie. Wearing a long, filmy green dress, all the better to look psychic and ethereal, she reminded me of a mermaid curled happily on a rock counting flying fish. She looked innocent and sweet and oh-so-gullible.

A combination Bart absolutely could not pass up.

Of course, sociopaths with questionable taste in porn weren’t always as smart as they thought they were. There was a gleam in Becca’s blue eyes that said she wasn’t nearly as gul...

Présentation de l'éditeur

Come one, come all! The Carniepunk Midway promises you every thrill and chill a traveling carnival can provide. But fear not! Urban fantasy’s biggest stars are here to guide you through this strange and dangerous world. . . .

RACHEL CAINE’s vampires aren’t child’s play, as a naïve teen discovers when her heart leads her far, far astray in “The Cold Girl.” With “Parlor Tricks,” JENNIFER ESTEP pits Gin Blanco, the Elemental Assassin, against the Wheel of Death and some dangerously creepy clowns. SEANAN McGUIRE narrates a poignant, ethereal tale of a mysterious carnival that returns to a dangerous town after twenty years in “Daughter of the Midway, the Mermaid, and the Open, Lonely Sea.” KEVIN HEARNE’s Iron Druid and his wisecracking Irish wolfhound discover in “The Demon Barker of Wheat Street” that the impossibly wholesome sounding Kansas Wheat Festival is actually not a healthy place to hang out. With an eerie, unpredictable twist, ROB THURMAN reveals the fate of a psychopath stalking two young carnies in “Painted Love.”

"Painted Love" by Rob Thurman
Marvelous surprises await you in "Painted Love." Told from the point of view of a supernatural hitchhiker, "Painted Love" takes readers on an exploration of love and evil. Rob Thurman gave Doodle such an interesting, unique voice that I was drawn into the story from the start and couldn't stop reading until I learned what was going on. I'm afraid I can't say much about this story without spoiling it, but suffice it to say that you're in for a fascinating journey. "Painted Love" stayed with me long after I finished reading it and I'm looking forward to reading more of Rob Thurman's work.

"The Three Lives of Lydia" by Delilah S. Dawson
I admit, I picked up the Carniepunk anthology for this story. I love Delilah S. Dawson's Blud series and thus was eager to delve into the world of the Bludmen once more. Ms. Dawson does not disappoint. "The Three Lives of Lydia" explores the terrible beauty of Sang and of Criminy's Clockwork Caravan as seen through the eyes of Lydia, a human from our world who wakes up in Sang. I loved the vibrancy of the carnival, the darker undertones of the world, and seeing Sang -- not to mention curious Bludman Charlie Dregs -- through Lydia's eyes. The twists and turns the story took were interesting, leaving me to ponder the implications of what Ms. Dawson revealed.

If you haven't read the Blud series, "The Three Lives of Lydia" is a good introduction to the world of Sang. Chronologically, it takes place before the first book, Wicked As They Come, so fans of the series will undoubtedly be thrilled to see the caravan and its members (including Blud heroes Criminy and Casper) before Tish's arrival. I hope to be seeing more of Charlie now that I've read this story, and all in all "The Three Lives of Lydia" sated my need for a Blud fix.

"The Demon Barker of Wheat Street" by Kevin Hearne
What should be a rather ordinary wheat festival turns into a life or death battle against demons and ghouls in "The Demon Barker of Wheat Street." Follow the Iron Druid, Atticus, his apprentice Granuaile, and Atticus's Irish wolfhound Oberon to Granuaile's hometown, where the trio must rescue themselves and others from some hellish (literally) carnies. I delighted in the mix of action, humor, and garish visuals in "The Demon Barker of Wheat Street." Kevin Hearne has a deft hand with all three and I loved that I could be laughing at Oberon's commentary one minute, and then be wrinkling my nose at a gruesome ghoul the next.

"The Demon Barker of Wheat Street" is part of Mr. Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles, but as I have not read the series (yet), I can safely say that readers unfamiliar with the Iron Druid books will easily be able to follow along. Fans of the series will surely be pleased with this short glimpse into Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon's lives.

Aside from the fact that I haven't been able to get Sondheim out of my head since I first read the title of this story, there's nothing I didn't love about "The Demon Barker of Wheat Street." I've wanted to read Mr. Hearne's work for a while, but now I'm definitely in a hurry to start the Iron Druid Chronicles!

"The Cold Girl" by Rachel Caine
Rachel Caine delivers heart-pounding suspense as a teenage girl's world comes crashing down around her. There are multiple kinds of monsters in "The Cold Girl," the worst of whom are human. At first, I wasn't sure I'd like "The Cold Girl," but Kiley's dying journey was enthralling in its sadness and had me turning the pages as Ms. Caine brought Kiley's terror to life. Though I won't spoil the story, I will say that readers better get ready for a haunting tale that will keep you guessing until the very end. I really enjoy Ms. Caine's writing and the outcome of "The Cold Girl" left me a well-satisfied reader.

***

"Freak House" by Kelly Meding
When half-djinn Shiloh Harrison's father is kidnapped by a magic abuser, it's up to her and two new allies to free him and other Paras from their freak show prison. "Freak House" provides a captivating introduction to Kelly Meding's Strays series. I absolutely loved this story. Ms. Meding gives Shiloh the right amount of intelligence, bravery, and magic to make her intriguing without going overboard (as sometimes happens in urban fantasy) and making our intrepid heroine difficult to relate to. I instantly adored Shiloh and I hope to learn much more about her and her two compatriots, former Army Ranger Julius and forced werewolf Will, in future Strays stories.

The world-building in "Freak House" was expertly done, providing all the information readers need without straying into what I call "info dump" territory. Kelly Meding is a marvelous storyteller and I cannot wait to read more about the world of Strays. Though I haven't read Ms. Meding's work before, after reading "Freak House" the four books of hers I have are going to the top of my to-be-read pile.

Carniepunk is an excellent urban fantasy sampler featuring some of the best authors in the genre today. Each author has a distinctive voice, but on the whole Carniepunk feels like a cohesive anthology.

To save this from becoming too lengthy a review, I highlighted my five favorite tales of carnie magic in the anthology. That doesn't mean that the other nine stories aren't worth talking about. As one might expect from an anthology featuring fourteen stories, Carniepunk can be a bit of a grab bag, depending on your tastes. Mark Henry's "The Sweeter the Juice" was the one story that was more horror than urban fantasy. His tale of drugs, transsexuals, and zombie babies in post-zombie apocalypse New York simply wasn't my cup of tea, though I must give Mr. Henry high marks for his talent as a writer (there are some truly haunting visuals in "The Sweeter the Juice"). Jaye Wells's "The Werewife," Hillary Jacques's "Recession of the Divine," and Seanin McGuire's "Daughter of the Midway, the Mermaid, and the Open, Lonely Sea" were also interesting, well-written stories that simply didn't speak to me personally.

A good number of the Carniepunk tales are set in established universes. That being said, I could follow along and enjoy every story, regardless of whether or not I've read the series it stemmed from. However, Allison Pang's "A Duet with Darkness," Jennifer Estep's "Parlor Tricks," Nicole Peeler's "Inside Man," Jackie Kessler's "A Chance in Hell," and Kelly Gay's "Hell's Menagerie" are all stories I think I'd enjoy more were I invested in their literary worlds. I do look forward to going back to these particular stories after I've read at least the first book in each series (the Abby Sinclair, Elemental Assassin, Jane True, Hell on Earth, and Charlie Madigan series, respectively).

Carniepunk is filled with fantastical and frightening delights. Whether you are a fan of one or more of the authors in this anthology already or are simply looking to try something new, Carniepunk is for you. One note of caution: you'll never look at a circus tent the same way again.

Par Douglas C. Meeks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
"Painted Love" - Rob Thurman - A tale a bit creepy but not as depressing as her normal works. Would have made a great Twilight Zone episode 3.5/5

"The Three Lives of Lydia" - Delilah S Dawson - A bit of a urban fantasy/horror combo that left me flat because it had no real ending or if you wish the ending was depressing at best. 2/5

"The Demon Barker of Wheat Street"- Kevin Hearne - I skipped this story because I am behind of the series and did not want any possible spoilers but based on everything he has written this could not be worse than 4/5 and probably 5/5

"The Sweeter the Juice"- Mark Henry - Post-apocalyptic zombie horror-comedy, with drug-addicted trannies and possibly the most disgusting story in the book, the gore level and storyline were only equaled by the writing. I started scanning about a third of the way through and got the story and did not miss anything worth remembering (if you think the trannys made it disgusting, think again) 1/5

"The Werewife" - Jaye Wells - A different type werewolf story and not too shabby. Bit of a surprise ending. - 3.5/5

"The Cold Girl" - Rachel Caine - Even with all my reading I have never read anything but a short story by Ms Caine but this was one of the better stories in the book and since I love a good revenge story this was perfect and even had a bit of happy ending 4.5/5

"A Duet with Darkness" - Allison Pang - This one is a bit harder to review because it was a good story but the ending was clunky and no resolution. I HATE being fed a hook for another book in these type collections and that is what this felt like since they gave you no ending but a "hope for the future" type ending that was no ending at all unless you grab the Abby Sinclair series which hopefully has the rest of this story. Rated as a story in this book, felt more like a teaser for a novel ... 2.5/5 at best, maybe less

"Recession of the Divine" - Hillary Jacques - This is another hard one, good story confusing writing style had me backtracking to make sure where/who I was, I give it, decent ending. 3.5/5

"Parlor tricks" - Jennifer Estep - What can I say, great story even if you are not familiar with the Elemental Assassin series it is from, Bria and Gin are taken and the kidnapper has no clue what a terrible mistake that is going to be. 4.5/5

"Freak House" - Kelly Meding - Shiloh's djinn father is missing and she gets a lead on him in Denver and has to hook up with Julius when they learn of an exclusive traveling show of freaks that only the rich are invited to see. As far as standalone story, this one may have been the best since you feel no need to buy another book (I might though), think this from a series called Strays. 4.5/5

"The Inside Man" - Nicole Peeler - From the Jane True series. The biggest supernatural gangster in Chicago tells the ladies they need to discover why his sister and everyone in her town seems to have become human husks, they find a clown demon taking over entire towns and taking their memories. Good story, kept my interest. 3.5/5

"A Chance in Hell" - Jackie Kessler - From the Hell on Earth storyline. A reformed succubus is dragged to the carnival by her best friend who is teaching her how to be more human. The barker is a demon of greed who would like nothing more than getting his hands on her new soul. A bit of humor and general sluttyness make this one new and different. 3/5

"Hell's Menagerie" - Kelly Gay - Teenage Emma heads off into Hades, but the puppies and their mother of a hellhound she's close to have been kidnapped, her hellhound tracks them to a carnival filled with creatures that don't exist on Earth. Emma decides to release all of the creatures with less than stellar results. Good story from the Charlie Madigan series. 4/5

"Daughter of the Midway, the Mermaid, and the Open, Lonely Sea" - Seanan McGuire - Ada grew up in the Miller Family Carnival, the daughter of a mermaid who is a headliner in the small family carnival . The story takes a spin when they return to the place her mother left to join the carnival over 18 years ago and the townies are creepy to say the least. (NOTE: I had a hard time with this story because they used my hometown as a setting and instead of anything factual she just used southern stereotypes to represent a Huntsville, Alabama that never existed). If you know nothing about the actual location this was a story with some emotional impact, one of the top 3-4 stories in the book. 4.5/5

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Anthology 21 décembre 2013
Par Barbara Elness - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A collection of stories with a carnival theme by a number of awesome authors. Some were outstanding, some were good, but all were well worth reading. I think some of the stories had an advantage to winning my affection, since they are set in worlds and with characters that I'm already familiar with from series I love. Some ended somewhat ambiguously, and I think I liked the stories with a clear happy ending better, but that's just my taste. I'm not going to go into each one here, but the stories I thought were outstanding were:

The Demon Barker of Wheat Street by Kevin Hearne - a story featuring the characters and world of the Iron Druid series, this one was full of action and I loved the ending.

The Cold Girl by Rachel Caine - a story of a teen girl in a relationship with the wrong boy with tragic results, but the ending was fantastic. I'm always a sucker for a well-deserved revenge.

A Duet With Darkness by Allison Pang - I wish I had read this story before I read A Sliver of Shadow because it features some of the characters that appeared in that book and explains their relationships. It features the violinist Melanie St James and was set in the world of the Abby Sinclair books.

Parlor Tricks by Jennifer Estep - a short story featuring Gin Blanco from her Elemental Assassin series which is one of my favorite series, so of course I adored it. It involved Gin and her sister Bria attending a carnival while looking for a missing girl. I loved the way Gin and Bria worked together to defeat the villains.

Freak House by Kelly Meding - this one was not set in the world I'm most familiar with, the Dreg City novels. I quickly came to love Shiloh the half-djinn, and the rest of the cast of characters involved in rescuing her father from a high dollar paranormal show run by a dark sorcerer. I hope Kelly has a chance to develop this cast of characters into at least a full length book or even a new series. I'd certainly be eager to read it.

Hell's Menagerie by Kelly Gay - set in the Charlie Madigan world, involving her daughter Emma, the hellhound Brimstone and Rex. They're out to rescue Brim's puppies and their mother from a hellish carnival in Charbydon, an activity which Emma's mother Charlie would definitely not approve of, with exciting action and results that show Emma is growing up to be a force to be reckoned with.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great anthology 8 décembre 2013
Par Laurie A. Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Normally with any anthology they’ll be a few stories I like and some I either hate or just don’t get. ‘Carniepunk’ is an exception; there are a few stories I love, a lot I like and none I hate or don’t get. I’m not sure if it’s because of the subject matter or because of which authors have work included in it, but this is a great collection. These carnival themed stories are very dark, but, for the most part, not gruesome. The only annoyance I found was that a number of the stories were set in worlds that are the settings of series and had some presumption that the reader would be familiar with that world; on the other hand, these stories provided an introduction to some series I might follow up on.

Par Jennifer Sicurella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Good: I love carnivals and having so many stories use a carnival setting was awesome. The Demon Barker of Wheat Street by Kevin Hearne was especially good, even though I have not gotten as far into the Iron Druid series as the story is set. I always love Kelly Gay's writing and
Hell's Menagerie is no exception. I will definitely be checking out more by Nicole Peeler and
Hillary Jacques.

The Bad: As with any anthology, the stories are hit or miss. Unfortunately Carniepunk was more miss for me. Authors I usually enjoy didn't do all that well with the carnival setting. Others, after reading their stories, I don't have any reason to follow up on their other works. I really wish this book had worked better for me.
