Coulrophobia is a short story on Amazon's Kindle Network. It's also the technical term for the fear of clowns. Our narrator is a shut-in who's been having nightmares about an abandoned circus. It got worse from there.
This story provides examples of:
- Circus of Fear, Amusement Park of Doom: The narrator visits one in his dreams. The farther inside he gets, the worse his situation becomes.
- Involuntary Transformation: It's every bit as unsettling as you'd think it would be.
- Monster Clown: Based on the description, though, he's really more of a villainous harlequin.
- Through the Eyes of Madness : Are we having fun yet?
