George Carole ran away from home to join the Vaudeville circuit. Sixteen years old, uncommonly gifted at the piano, he falls in with a strange troupe - even for Vaudeville.

Under the watchful eye of the enigmatic figure of Silenus, George comes to realise that the members of the troupe are more than they appear to be. And their travels have a purpose that runs deeper than entertainment.

George must uncover the mysteries of Silenus's company before it is too late. He is already entangled in their web of secrets and, if he doesn't learn where they are taking him, he may never find his way out.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A melancholy coming-of-age tale with a moody atmosphere . . . THE TROUPE is a genuinely powerful piece of work - SFX

If books were music this would be a symphony performed at the proms; it's round, and full, and big, and packed with ideas. The characters are alive, the horror deep and dark and moody and mean, the story tight and the twists appear out of the blackness like sudden bolts of lightning. The whole thing is an utter delight and highly recommended. - TheBookbag.co.uk

Thought-provoking, beautifully written and highly recommended - SCI-FI BULLETIN

“Magical, Mythical, Vaudevillian Treat.”

Robert Jackson Bennett is a difficult writer to pin down. What exactly is it that he writes? Horror? Fantasy? Science Fiction? Well the answer seems to be all three and much more besides. In this era of clone fiction,... More
