B Sides 14 - Uneasy Lies the Head that Wears the Clown by Fraser Sherman
Saturday, March 12, 2011

The book opens in New York where hedge-fund manager Tony Wolfe- completely convinced that his success proves him a superman straight out of an Ayn Rand novel- wakes up groggy and realizes his new hair transplant appears to have fallen out. If only.

When he checks the mirror, he has bright orange hair stretched out in two wings on either side of his head, plus a face now completely covered in clown white and massive red lips. He has, in short, woken up transformed into a clown...

This was bordering on Frank Key, but held just shy enough.

Very confusing format, but effective. Never quite sure if it ever dipped into non-fiction, but fun story!

"Was that Mr. Baker?" his receptionist asked, as the clown-faced figure quickly slipped past her into Tom's office.

Does anyone know how to get the mp3 of this? I don't seem to be able to download it from the main site or the archive. Usually when this happens I download from a CastRoller user who re-posts all the episodes, but apparently they're not posting BSides episodes.

Ha, this one was pretty neat. An interesting frame, with it all serving as a book review. In some ways that frees up the author to do all kinds of interesting stuff, allowing him to perform self-criticism within the body of the story itself, and all viewed through the filter of a jaded critic. Pretty neat.

And, now I'm caught up on B-Sides. I'm not really sure what sets them apart from regular DC episodes, but I'm not going to complain about bonus episodes. :)
