Publisher's summary

A collection of chilling stories from the leading writers in horror and suspense, exploring elusive urban legends.

Join Michael Monelo, one of the creators of the Blair Witch Project, and TV writer/director veteran, Nick Braccia, on a journey through urban horror and suspense.

Explore the world of Maynard Wills, PhD, professor of folklore and fan of the podcast, Video Palace. The podcast followed a man named Mark Cambria, who along with 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, Wills 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 horror anthology - which can be listened to on its own or as a companion to the hit Shudder podcast, Video Palace.

Creative and creepy

This is a collection of small treasures. Each one is different. Several are about the cruelty and toxicity of online culture, a bunch capture a slice of life from growing up, but some are just good campfire stories, and they're all connected by a nice frame story. If you like the book there's also a podcast but this is such an indirect spinoff that you definitely don't need any familiarity with it going in. 10/10 recommend this.

I Should Know Better

Got this because of the podcast. It's no different in quality. I feel like this is just a different way for a podcast trying to monetize their product. Bait & switch.

Acting and writing - donation level, no where near professional level.

No Previous Knowledge Necessary

I came into this with no prior knowledge of the other media directly related to the book and was still able to fully enjoy it. I was at no point lost. And I am now inspired to check that other media out.

I enjoyed most of the short stories within the book and there was one I absolutely loved. They all have different styles to help the book from getting stale.

If the premise speaks to you and your a fan of horror I'd say give it a go. Don't let the fact that it's part of a larger story bar you, it did not effect my enjoyment.
