As a book reviewer you encounter books of many different styles, some good, some bad, some generic, some not so, and some that defy you place a label on them. It is one of the reasons why you go on, the eternal quest for a book that piques your interest in a sea of banality. It happens not as often as you would like, and when it does you get a real buzz, you want to tell everyone how good it is, you want everyone to read it, and you want everyone to agree that it is the best book ever. Then you get a book like Clown Wars: Blood & Aspic, a book that doesn't so much as defy the reader from putting a label on it, it is more a case of the book stuffing all the labels in its clown sized pants and daring you to pull a label out from one of its pockets.

Bizarre, grim, and darkly funny, Clown Wars is an ambitious novel that honks its big red nose at the readers expectations.
Set in a version of our world that has taken a step to left into a deviant and freakish variant of the world we know and love. It is a world where normals and clowns have lived for as long as anyone can remember in an Entente Cordiale, ​with both clowns and normals thinking the other one is weird. However, the peace is about to be shattered when a series of Clown like terrorist attacks against the normals throws the whole world into torment, and into a war that threatens to destroy both species. It is down to a small band of clown "conscripts" to find out who is behind these attacks and bring peace back to the two bloodlines.

Odds bodkins, but Clown Wars: Blood and Aspic is an extraordinarily bonkers book. Part comedy, part horror and more than a little urban fantasy, this a new collaboration from Jeremy Drysdale and Joseph D’Lacey. So sit back, relax, and prepare yourself for a carnival of curiosities, a plethora of puns and a jolly good story to boot.

Colin Clarke is a teenage clown still finding his way in the grand old traditions of tom-foolery. When his people are attacked, he steps up (not easy in a pair of oversized shoes) to help protect everything he holds dear. Much of his journey is about understanding the necessity for clowns existence, and how he fits in with the rest of the world.

Colin’s arch-nemesis is Aspic, a gloriously Machiavellian villain. Propelled by a furious rage, he will stop at nothing to destroy all clowns. Every damn one! The more you learn about his character, the more you realise just how mind-bogglingly angry he is. I’ve been pondering and I’m going to describe his actions as barely controlled seething. He seethes on every page. Fluster, Grout and Stretch are Aspic’s less than perfect minions. They are as nasty and loathsome a trio as you would ever wish to meet. Obviously, I warmed to their antics immediately. Much of the novel’s insanity can in fact be traced directly back to these three. They revel in chaos and the streets of Blueville are far more dangerous when they are around. A good (or should that be bad?) villain is, always such fun. In Blood and Apsic we’re spoiled for choice, all the villains are deliciously evil. I was particularly fond of how these characters talk to one another.

“I hate the smell of Clowns in the afternoon,” he said. “Smells like… levity.

I wouldn't normally read a horror story, but because this book is also a comedy, I thought I'd give it a try. And I am glad I did. It caught my imagination from the first chapter. The characters were so well written that I could see them in my minds eye. Clown Wars unfolded like a film, I wish it was a film because then I would see if my imagination matched that of the film maker. Each chapter was a surprise as you didn't know which way the story would jump. I was sorry when I got to the end of the book as I wanted more, I hope there is another book soon.

This is quite simply the best book about Clowns I've ever read. It could even start a whole new genre, Pie-Fi maybe? The writers have come up with a perfectly realised alternate universe where humans and clowns co-exist in uneasy harmony. What's particularly impressive is how they've managed to take something old-fashioned and slightly tired and transformed it in to a brand new, completely unique modern story. I caught flashes of the most recent Mad Max film, the gleeful twin communities of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Even a dash of Lon Chaney's long forgotten silent masterpiece, He Who Gets Slapped but, again, the triumph of Clown Wars is that it is really unlike anything else. I'm not just going to summarise the plot and other reviewers have gone in to much greater detail but if you're looking for a funny, violent and fascinating book then give Clown Wars a try and before long you'll be able to tell a Nose from a Grump and an Auguste from a Hobo.
