which reminds me. Other than Gresham's Nightmare Alley, are there any circus or carnival noirs worth checking out?

*********** I'm slowly working my way through one called Center Ring by Gary Jennings. I'm afraid I can't recommend it. It has none of the magic and power of Aztec, The Journey, or Raptor. Those three books are superb entertainment. Jennings is a great storyteller. The Journey is a fictional version of Marco Polo's epic trip to the East, Raptor is about a Roman leader towards the fall of the eastern empire, and Aztec is, well, about the Aztecs.
