Eye by David J. Schow


Cimarron Street Books is pleased to bring you an updated edition of David J. Schow's fifth short story collection — back in print after 20 years — and for the first time in paperback!

You might perceive EYE as an unblinking scrutiny of sex, obsession, idol worship, penny miracles, policing the birthrate, mysterious phone calls in the dead of night, pornography, wrongheaded faith, or the price of devotion. With whom — or what — are you really crawling into bed, in the dark?

Or you might view it as a phantasmagoric kaleidoscope of sex, monsters, empaths, telepaths, aliens, peewee crime kingpins, otherworldly lovers, sentient art, UFOs, "rectosonics" and/or Mexican wrestling.

You could behold EYE as a spectacle of serial love, hot-and-cold lust, betrayal, and relationships seen from both ends of the telescope. Or a long, hard look into killers from inside their POV (and out), murder, mayhem, death and things worse than death.

Or you could stop reading this hard sell and start eyeballing the thirteen stories that comprise EYE ... including two completely new tales that have never before seen print, luscious illustrations by Thomas Canty, and a sparkling new Afterword, all prepared specially for this edition.

EYE. Feast yours!
