Praise for Clown in a Cornfield

“An author who knows how to make us afraid.” — Clive Barker”

“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

“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

More Praise for Adam Cesare

“Sick and sardonic and just plain brilliant.”
—Duane Swierczynski, author of Fun & Games, on Tribesmen

Mercy House is 100% distilled nightmare juice. Adam Cesare notches up the horror to nigh-unbearable levels. Even my skin was screaming by the end of this book.”—Nick Cutter, author of The Troop

“I’m gonna venture a little prediction here: Adam Cesare is a Fango superstar in the making. Of all the new writers busting out on the scene, Cesare’s the young guy with the greatest encyclopedic gorehound know-how, blistering cinematic pace, unquenchable love of both fiction and film, and hell-bent will to entertain. Cesare does just about everything right.”

—John Skipp, Fangoria

“The prologue of The Summer Job is one the best and scariest openings to a horror novel I’ve ever read…The rest of the novel is equally great.”

“The textbook definition of a nail-biter. The Summer Job is a kissing cousin to inbred classics from masters like Ketchum and Kilborn. Cesare’s best novel yet.”
Bloody Disgusting

“A few books ago, many reviewers, including me, declared Cesare an outstanding new voice in the genre and the future of horror. Well, the future is now, and this novel proves that Cesare is a consummate master of the creepy, the bloody, and the scary.” –HorrorTalk on Exponential.

“Nostalgic horror fans will find plenty to enjoy in Cesare’s love letter to the ’80s. Video Night’s take on the decade’s fun, gory and humorous films will bring readers back to the glory days of Stuart Gordon, Sam Raimi, Fred Dekker, Frank Henenlotter and John Carpenter.”

“The narrative may be a loving re-creation of very familiar stories, but there’s no denying the author’s technique. His pleasure with the details is palpable, particularly in describing the mayhem. Cesare is clearly talented.”
Bookgasm on Video Night

“Cesare’s latest is a knockout that’s reminiscent of classic genre novels like Stephen King’s Children of the Corn and Thomas Tryon’s Harvest Home. There’s a potent retro vibe running through Cesare’s work, in general—he’s the closest thing literary horror has to its own Jim Mickle or Ti West. He’s a cult favorite author in the making.”
