A collection of chilling stories from the leading writers in horror and suspense exploring elusive urban legends.
In the popular documentary podcast, Video Palace, Mark Cambria, aided by his girlfriend Tamra Wulff, investigated the origins of a series of esoteric white video tapes. Cambria went missing in pursuit of these tapes, but not before hearing whispers of an ominous figure called the Eyeless Man.
Fascinated by the podcast and Cambria’s disappearance, Maynard Wills, PhD, a professor of folklore, embarks on his own investigation into the origins of the tapes and the Eyeless Man, who he believes has lurked in the dark corners of media culture and urban legends for at least seventy-five years. As part of his study, he has invited popular writers of horror and gothic fiction to share their own Eyeless Man stories, whether heard around the campfire or experienced themselves.
Get swept away in this thrilling and terrifying collection of tales to read at your own risk!

"This is, perhaps, the most reckless, irresponsible book that has been published in my lifetime. There are places the human mind should not go, stories that should remain untold, and mysteries best left unexplored. This is one of them. If you value your mental and spiritual health, put this down immediately and move along." —Douglas Rushkoff, Media theorist, author of Team Human, Present Shock, Media Virus.
“Reader beware, nightmares will ensue.” —Alys Arden, author of The Casquette Girl series
