One thought on “Fictoplasm episode 52: The Land of Laughs by Jonathan Carroll

  1. As always, thank you. Usually when there’s a new episode I read the book discussed and then listen to avoid spoilers. I’m glad I did it this time as the book was really, really good – and funny as hell! I laughed out loud several times.
    Anyway, I’ll take a look at Pale Assassins and see what’s up with that one.
    Last of all, I hope this finds you well, recovering or at the least coping with your outer and inner demons.
