Clowns Win ABC Fiction Prize.

Why is it that when the winner of the ABC Fiction Award for Emerging Writers is described as a sinister clown novel where the protagonist, Jamie, "is press-ganged into working for the Pilo circus as a clown with supernatural powers" where "he has to face up to the dark side of his own human nature" that I am not filled with excitement and joy?

Because it sounds stupid? Pretty much. Still, here's hoping that it's not, but in addition to the clowns, it's a novel that has gotten published through competition and, generally speaking, they're weaker things.
