Stories of the Eye TOC

Our table of contents for STORIES OF THE EYE has been finalized!

This image above is a photo entitled “Joel-Peter Witkin and Son, Albequerque, 1988.” It’s a placeholder, NOT the book cover. We’re still working on the art! (However, if Joel-Peter Witkin wants to get in touch, I’m easy to reach. What a dream it would be to work aside such genius.)

In no particular order, here’s our list of authors and their unique and beautiful horror stories exploring the relationships between artists and models. Click the author’s names to follow them and stay up to date:

Hailey Piper – “The Deep End of You”

Brendan Vidito – “Regular Maintenance of the Anxiety Machine”

Gwendolyn Kiste – “Her Skin a Grim Canvas”

Donyae Coles – “The Artist, The Art”

Roland Blackburn – “Lucio”

Andrew Wilmot “The Aneurytic”

Ira Rat – “I’m the Last Person I’d Want to Be”

LC von Hessen – “Efface”

M. Lopes da Silva – “The Thing That Moves the Meat”

Matt Neill Hill – “In Thrall to Your Cathode Star”

Gary J. Shipley – “Art Murmur”

Joe Koch – “All The Rapes in the Museum”

and a contribution from editor Sam Richard!

I just want to thank our STORIES OF THE EYE authors for their unique and beautiful horror stories. I’m truly honored to be working with each of these brilliant writers who brought incredible thoughtfulness, artistry, and depth to their stunning narratives.

More updates coming soon! For now, we’re working through editing the individual pieces and deciding how to arrange them in the gallery.
