“A beautiful, fractured story of beautiful, fractured people in prose powerful enough that it feels fired from a shotgun.”
– Jon Hollins, author of the Dragon Lords trilogy

Close Your Eyes is a beautiful piece of weird, surrealist fiction. Dive into a far-future universe where puppets speak and fight for their masters. Come along with a ragtag crew of post-human scavengers as they rage and love on a small ship in the outer reaches of space. Experience moon-sized asylums as they trap the unwary in a labyrinth of experimentation of both identity and sanity. You'll be glad you did. (Or, will you?)
