“Rolfe’s latest effort pits a social worker against a violent serial killer in a strange world where nightmares become reality.”
A social worker’s dreams shift into a nightmarish reality, compelling him to finally face the mistakes of his past.
A serial killer turns his own land of graveyards into an evil playground that bends to his every sadistic whim.
Now these two worlds will clash, and end in a violent collision of ruin and pain.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Glenn Rolfe has quickly established himself as one of the hardest-hitting writers in horror fiction today. The author of Blood and Rain, The Window, Abram’s Bridge, Becoming, and Until Summer Comes Around, his short fiction has appeared in such anthologies as Leaders of the Pack, Splatterpunk Fighting Back, Northern Frights, Welcome to the Show, Midnight in the Graveyard, and is collected in Land of Bones. Rolfe’s latest effort pits a social worker against a violent serial killer in a strange world where nightmares become reality. Booklist calls August’s Eyes “An intense tale reminiscent of classic works by Jack Ketchum or Stephen King”, and Steve Stred (The Girl Who Hid in the Trees) says August’s Eyes is “A book that’ll be a favorite of many readers this year, ‘August’s Eyes’ definitely delivered a fantastic read from start to finish.”
Forthcoming 17 August 2021 from Flame Tree Press, August’s Eyes by Glenn Rolfe is available for pre-order now.
