Carnival of the Criminal Minds, No. 20

The Carnival has traveled from Damien’s carnival down under to the big sky and corn country of southwestern Minnesota, where Crime Dog One’s Virtual Dive Bar is hosting a special freak show edition.

Proprietor Anthony Neil Smith serves up “a feast of Biker pulp, grind-house, Pentecostals, war comics, Minnesota, ‘transgressive’ fiction, and High School Satanists.” Wait, that’s just the primordial ooze of his next book. But he does offer a rare mix of transgressive zines, biker pulp, pentacostalism, and some of the unusual things you can find his newly-adopted state, home of the film Fargo, if not of the city of Fargo.  So warm up your woodchippers and come on down to the sideshow.

Up next: Come on up to the mezzanine, where Brian Lindenmuth offers his Observations from the Balcony, and if you’re lucky he may even share his popcorn.
