Mr Oakley has moved back to the small English village
where his family once had roots. Binscombe is a place of cricket and corner
shops and after-work pints in the pub. But peel away the wallpaper
of the ordinary and you will find cracks in the fabric of what we think of as
Luckily Mr Oakley has the enigmatic figure of Mr Disvan as his guide to
the borderland between the everyday and the uncanny. Part-wizard, part-tribal
elder, Mr Disvan is Mr Oakley’s much-needed lifeline to sanity — and at the same
time might just be the scariest of all Binscombe’s many secrets.
The classic Binscombe Tales by John Whitbourn are some of the most
acclaimed and widely anthologized in modern weird fiction. So draw your chair
close to the fireside and settle back to
have your blood chilled and your imagination thrilled by a modern master of the macabre.
The entire series will be published in October as both a 3-volume paperback edition and a 6-part Kindle edition. This story, "Eyes" was originally published in 1989 and anticipates the concept of the Final Destination movies by over a decade.
