Re: RARA-AVIS: Dennis Lehane

Chabon's own short story - "The God of Dark Laughter," was featured in the Year's Best Fantasy and Horror 2002. It is a really diverting dark fantasy/mystery about a clown found dead with this head flayed, and an ancient sect of in-bred albinos being stalked through the centuries. Everyone knows Clowns are damned scary, and this has to be the best Clown Noir since James Powell's "A Dirge for Clown Town," and will appeal to readers who enjoy, say, Joe Lansdale's more outrageous side.
