Dead Clown Barbecue by Jeff StrandDark Regions Press is excited to be launching a new collection from author Jeff Strand, read more about the book here: http://www.darkregions.com/books/dead-clown-barbecue-by-jeff-strand
From the author of Pressure, Dweller and A Bad Day for Voodoo comes a new short story collection featuring seven never-before-printed tales and original cover artwork by Alex McVey. The stories within this collection range from hilarious to downright disturbing, proving that Jeff Strand is still a master at what hes known for: a delicious blend of the humorous and the horrific. Strand fans will take delight in the seven new stories first printed in Dead Clown Barbecue, including Pett Semmuteary Dummy True Hero Fangboy and the Troll Stop Stabbing Me Pregnancy Test and Push the Button.
A man who finds a severed nose on a plate on his dining room table. A bell that can summon Satan (maybe). Casual Fridays at work that get out of control. A cheery outlook on the post-apocalyptic landscape. The final thoughts of a doomed skydiver. A girl punished by having to share a bed with her grandmother’s corpse. Revenge via baking a tarantula into a cake. A shocking look at where those awful computer-generated book covers come from. And the lost tale of Fangboy.
These are only a few of the demented stories in DEAD CLOWN BARBECUE, a collection of thirty gleefully macabre tales, seven of which were written just for this collection. There’s even a brand new one about a ventriloquist dummy. Those things creep you out, right? You’ll laugh. You’ll scream. Okay...you probably won’t actually scream, unless you already had issues before you started reading, but you might cringe and get a little spooked.
“No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand’s perfect mixture of comedy and terror.” - Cemetery Dance
When you first meet Joe Cross in Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead , he looks about as slick as any other self-made guru and weight-loss expert. Cross spends much of his film stumping for something called the "Reboot juice fast," a detoxifying crash diet that requires participants to consume only home-made juices made from a blend of green vegetables and fruits. He talks with easy confidence and he clearly has his sales pitch down cold. Cross anticipates and capably manipulates the skepticism of his audience, knowing well that his proselytizing for a diet of nothing but pureed fruits and veggies will seem gimmicky and implausible. His constant need to pitch his audience detracts from the overall case the film is trying to make. He relates how he first chose to visit and travel across America for sixty days in order to prove to himself how well he could resist such daunting American cultural institutions as the hamburger and French fries.

WITH MORE PLANTS
Here at MindBodyGreen, we're thinking about transformation , and no one embodies this idea of positive change better than Aussie filmmaker and entrepreneur, Joe Cross. But the most exciting thing is that every single day I get emails from people who are losing weight, getting off medication and feeling happier because they're Rebooting, and that gets me excited to keep spreading our message. Did the extreme approach you took in the film going on an all-juice fast for two months make it difficult to transition to a regular eating plan? Actually, my 60 days of juicing made it easy to transition to a regular eating plan. The experience reset my palate and gave me an appreciation for how delicious whole plant-foods are.
