Who would win in a no-holds-barred battle to the death? The Mummy or the Clown? In honour of the inaugural Blogger Book Fair (All’s Fair in Blogs and More!), they go head-to-head in the TOURNAMENT OF MONSTERS!
Imhotep: Okay, as far as abilities go, Pennywise and Imhotep are almost evenly matched—ALMOST. They can both use telekinesis, regenerate quickly, both can control minds and both have numerous other powers under their belt. The problem is, Pennywise thinks too small. He only terrorizes one small town. Not even the whole town, just a group of kids who then turn to adults. Imhotep aims to rule the world. Not to mention, anyone can prey on kids, Imhotep is a threat to all. Imhotep is also able to create and control an army of undead warriors. Let’s see Pennywise try that!

Pennywise: What are you afraid of most? To me, there’s nothing scarier than a clown with fangs. But Pennywise reads your mind and becomes your worst fear. A mummy. Winged leeches. A super-sized spider. Now unless your worst fear is sand, Imhotep’s most frightening shape resembles a walking mud pie or something dredged up from the sewers — where many have heard Pennywise say in their nightmares: “They all float down here.” How frightening can a creature be if he is bested by Encino Man and tearfully goes to his death when his girlfriend ditches him? Want a real monster? Send in the clowns. Defended by Wynne Channing, author of What Kills Me

Kayla Curry lives in North Platte, Nebraska with her husband and two year old son. She is always getting ideas for stories from random thoughts and places, but a lot of inspiration comes from the wide range of people she sees while working front desk at a local hotel. Journalism was an important part of learning who she was as a writer, but ultimately, Kayla’s creativity won over and she decided to write fiction short stories in her free time.
