The carnival is coming...
The small town of Tillbrook has a secret. One that has been kept for over a hundred years.

Journalist David Hampden needs a good story to resurrect his flagging career.

His damaged brother, unemployed photographer Paul, just needs to find some meaning in his life.

When David is alerted to a century-old carnival, the idea of a feature story is too good to pass up, so he drags Paul along to Tillbrook.

What they find is darker than they could ever imagine.

Paul becomes part of the exotic world of the Dervish Carnival, est. 1899, and David must risk everything to save his brother.

Even though Paul might not want to be saved.

Come in and enjoy the show.

First published by Hachette Livre in 2006, Carnies is the debut novel of award-winning Australian horror writer Martin Livings, and won the Western Australian Science Fiction Foundation award for best novel of that year.

"Livings is a master of his genre and manages to draw us into his world, kicking and screaming though we might be. And his world is dark, and there are things in the darkness that howl and hunger."

Stephanie Gunn, Australian Horrorscope
