This day had been planned for some years. Eugenia Hammond and Charles Austen had played together as children whenever they had been able to escape the confining influences of their mothers. Their growing close and even intimate relationship, had been a secret from all but her younger sister who helped them evade their mother's constant prying and interference while spying upon the pair of them herself. Then, Eugenia had been sent away. Her mother had found out too much, and she needed to separate the two companions before irreparable damage were done. Eugenia had been allowed home only for the marriages of her two elder sisters and for the funeral of their father, but that had been enough. Love always found a way. She and Charles had made a pact together that would go forward when she reached her twenty first birthday and gained her independence and control of her inheritance. That day had now arrived.

A stormy evening of olive and silver was closing in, as Father Brown, wrapped in a grey Scotch plaid, came to the end of a grey Scotch valley and beheld the strange castle of Glengyle. It stopped one end of the glen or hollow like a blind alley; and it looked like the end of the world. Rising in steep roofs and spires of seagreen slate in the manner of the old French-Scotch chateaux, it reminded an Englishman of the sinister steeple-hats of witches in fairy tales; and the pine woods that rocked round the green turrets looked, by comparison, as black as numberless flocks of ravens.
A clown moves into town. And everything goes to Hell... When he was four years old, an evil clown took Daniel Rodgers into the woods. "Ever been kissed by a clown, Danny?" he whispered. "It's to die for." As it turned out, the clown was the one who died. Or so Daniel thought. But now, years later, the clown is back. And he's got more on his mind this time than just a peck on the cheek. There's a dark plague spreading through the town of Baker City-one kiss at a time. The infected appear normal enough. But behind their twisted ear-to-ear grins, something is wrong. Terribly wrong. Soon there'll be no one left. No matter how much Daniel tells himself that it's impossible, the clown has come back. And he's brought Hell with him. "Kissed by a Clown" is the first book of WELCOME TO HELL, the new series from master of terror O. Penn-Coughin ("open coffin"). WARNING: this book is not for wimps, the squeamish, or those prone to nightmares. "Kissed by a Clown" will seriously challenge even the most brave-hearted bejeezus not to run away screaming.For ages 10 and up. (The American Association of Clowns has certified that no actual clowns were harmed in the writing of this book.) "I'll never go to the circus or McDonald's again! O. Penn-Coughin kills all doubt that he is the master of children's horror with his latest book, "Kissed by a Clown." A heart-pounding, page-turning, super creepy ride through a funhouse from Hell. Awesome! (Now, I'm really going to miss those breakfast biscuits.)"-- Jools Sinclair, author of "44" "I have seen the face of horror, and its name is O. Penn-Coughin."-- Jan Boemann
