The Big Bah-Ha

Type: Fantasy and Horror Novel
Page Count: ???pp.

Publisher: Drollerie Press

Beatrice, who only moments before was the eldest member and leader of the Barka gang, wakes up dead. She was almost, probably, 12.

Either the slap rash got her, as it gets everyone over the age of 12, or the Flabberghast got tired of waiting for her to drop dead and took her skin for a door and her bones for his stew.

Who can say?

What she can say is that she didn’t get to wake up in heaven. Instead, she’s in the Big Bah-Ha, a place that’s supposed to be a comfort to children after they pass on. Only something’s very, very wrong here and, despite all her bravery and cunning, she’s not quite sure how to fix it or if she’ll survive the afterlife long enough to try.

What others are saying about The Big Bah-Ha:

“Physicists are discovering, to their horror, that future events cast their shadows into the past. If this be so, the fear of clowns so often seen in children may have its origin in this story. It is deep and wise and fabulous, and will leave you shuddering and strangely at peace. You could found a religion on it — or it may found a religion without you. Or found some new thing that humankind has not yet seen. Only God knows what would happen after the founding. As someone (you’ll find out who) says deep in the story, ‘We’re all clowns now.'”
Gene Wolfe, multiple award winner and author of The Sorcerer’s House and The Book of the New Sun Series.

The Big Bah-Ha is a macabre post-apocalyptic fairy tale, a rollicking fantasy of a band of near-feral children who brave a plague-ridden landscape on a desperate quest. To rescue one of their own, they will ally with the monstrous and enigmatic Flabberghast — who arrived only after the world ended and eats the bones of the dead — and penetrate the mystery of Chuckle City, home to ravenous packs of balloon aminals, murderous Gacy boys, and the elusive Gray Harlequin. The Big Bah-Ha — it’s “The Goonies” meets “The Road Warrior,” perfectly suited for both ordinary children and gifted adults, and one of the most original fantasies I’ve read in a long time.
— John O’Neill, Founding Editor of Black Gate

    Clowns? I do hate them. I think it started with Stephen King’s “It” and the movie based on it. No love for clowns from me since then
