Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Hounded comes an Iron Druid Chronicles short story in the captivating Carniepunk anthology.
The ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan gets more than greasy corn dogs and flat soda when he visits a carnival in Kansas to which his apprentice, Granuaile, drags him. He runs across a barker with a strange power over the crowd: attractive women leave their men and disappear into an unmarked tent, never to be seen again, and the men wander away, forgetting that they ever had girlfriends or wives. When Granuaile falls under the barker’s influence and enters the tent, Atticus isn’t about to forget it and move on. He and his Irish wolfhound, Oberon, pursue her and discover the horrifying secret to the carnival’s success.

Disappointing

What disappointed you about Carniepunk: The Demon Barker of Wheat Street?

The narrator for this is not the typical for the Iron Druid series. It's also part of a larger collection narrated by Kirby. That being said, I was still hopeful he could pull it off. I was wrong, very wrong. Oberon goes from being charming and funny to perv-y and weird - what a difference a narrator makes.


How could the performance have been better?

Luke Daniels - all the way.
