The Forever Big Top
by Jeremy Thompson
Freshy Jest is dead and has been transported to a circus tent in the afterlife. Enduring a succession of gruesome demises, each of which drops him to a lower tent level, Freshy tours realms of shifting geometry, backwards colors, self-aware balloon animals, scalding lipstick currents, and grisly gluttony. Menaced by serial killer clowns and even eerier entities, he seeks to return to Earth.
