About the Author:

Charles G. Finney was born in Sedalia, Missouri, in 1905. After serving in the 15th Infantry in China (“I wasn't a very good soldier but finally I did make Private, 1st Class, and got an Excellent Character on my discharge”) he settled in Tucson, Arizona. He lived there, writing and working on the staff of the Tucson Star. Charles Finney is the actual creator of the genre of “dark fantasy". Not being a particularly prolific writer, he wrote the novel that became the most famous and popular in his oeuvre. Finney by himself became a significant representative of the pre-war fantasy and horror literature.

Review:

The Circus of Dr. Lao is a fascinating work: a labyrinth of meanings and images that sucks in the imagination, teases it and impishly plays with it. It gives nothing away, but offers much sustenance to those willing to take the risk of stepping into the tents housing its bizarre attractions.”—Locus Online (Locus Online)
