Featured ebook - ‘Bubble Juggler’ by Maria Herring

Clowns. For some they are symbolic of the enjoyment of a childhood trip to the circus. To others, they tend to evoke far more sinister feelings. Maria Herring’s “Bubble Juggler” begins when a lonely woman buys a painting of a clown in a charity shop. She soon finds that each time she looks at it, she becomes transfixed. Surely the striking nature of those staring eyes and the melancholy turn of its mouth are just down to the skill of the artist, aren’t they? And is it just her or is the temperature dropping?
A wonderfully chilling story for only 99p

The best 100 novels ever written in English?

We’re always interested to read these compilation lists of the best literature, but this one published by the Observer and is especially fascinating because of the way it was compiled over a two year period.
