When Gregori Dragan’s carnival of the bizarre rolls into the dusty desert town of Snake Falls in the Summer of 1936, one thing is for sure—there will be repercussions. For the grifter, the carny, the cripple, and the reluctant beauty queen there is an uncertain future. Lives will be changed forever, some for the good, and some…maybe not so much. But for Dragan, the denouement is his spectacular sideshow: The Art of Anatomy. Witnessing it is not for the faint of heart; becoming part of it is best not even contemplated. The Art of Anatomy by Gary Power is a Mannison Minibook published by Mannison Press and is available in paperback and eBook now.
