The Komarovs by Chico Kidd – a new Captain da Silva novella is now available for your Kindle.
Charley Zriny wished he hadn’t hired the Siamese twins. Sure, they were a great draw, but they acted as if they were queen of the damn carnival. And that’s just the start. Besides the zombie there is a werewolf, a necromancer and ghosts. A maze of mirrors. And more zombies. Captain da Silva is at the centre of this – and all he wanted was a day out with his family.

“Circuses, especially their odder sideshow attractions, are a familiar ingredient in horror fiction. But here the colourful historic setting and the liveliness of the story make shenanigans in a mirror-maze seem fresh and interesting. There’s a clever twist involving said mirror, and the relationship between members of da Silva’s crew are nicely dramatised, as is the captain’s attitude to his family. There’s also a touch of horror-comedy, as a zombie disintegrates in combat but continues to try and get the job done. They had a proper work ethic in those days …Overall, The Komarovs is a well-balanced novella, packing in more material than a short story could hold but still short enough to read in one sitting.” — David Longhorn
