I bought the entire Galactic Midway series many years ago to read on my PalmPilot. This is probably my 5th time reading them.
Sideshow is the first book in a series of 4 novels following a most unusual carnival.
From Mike Resnick’s web site:
Carny owner Thaddeus Flint kidnaps a rival carnival’ freak show, only to learn that the “freaks” are alien tourists visiting Earth in the one disguise they thought was safe from discovery. As they fall sick and go into fits of depression, Flint must work to keep them healthy and on display, which leads to a most unlilkely bond between captor and captives.
I rate this book a 7 out of 10 by itself and the “Tales of the Galactic Midway” series as whole a 9 out of 10.
