We didn’t set out to assemble a queer anthology. It just happened that way. Not every author in “Stories of the Eye” identifies as queer in some way, but the majority of them do and it’s a beautiful thing to ponder how stories of personal transformation and intense internal knowing through self and other seem to grow best in queer soil.
“Stories of the Eye” has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be more proud of the stories in it. Here’s the description:
“Beauty is a knife.
Between the desire to create and the thing created, the model is a key, a stepping stone, a participant othered through the process of creation. These thirteen visions of modern horror dissect the relationship between artist and model, exposing the spaces the eye is tricked into missing where we witness the beautiful and monstrous intricacies of making and being made.
Featuring stories by Andrew Wilmot, M. Lopes da Silva, Gwendolyn Kiste, Hailey Piper, Roland Blackburn, Ira Rat, Donyae Coles, Matt Neil Hill, Brendan Vidito, LC von Hessen, Gary J. Shipley, and editors Joe Koch and Sam Richard.”
Pre-order “Stories of the Eye” before it hits the shelves on October 25th.
Our authors have such sights to show you.
