  1. As we’ve always said, this list is a work in progress. Robert Sampson included a complete list of all the Crimson Clown stories in one of his Yesterday’s Faces books.

    • I don’t have that series.

      Decided to look on Amazon. They have v1-5 (but not 6). Only 1 copy of each. So I took the plunge to get them, as I fear these are now out of print and Amazon won’t be able to get more. Guess I’ll need to keep an eye out for v6 that isn’t expensive.

      Also order a used copy of his Deadly Excitements. Wish Black Dog Books would hurry up and put out Night Master, another one of his works I do not have.

      • Take a look on abebooks.com; that’s where I got them all for around $5.

        Don’t hold your breath on The Night Master; it’s been forthcoming for nearly five years. Maybe it’s being chiseled into slate slabs.
