Flask of Eyes Update #6

It's here!!! It's here!!! 

Yes, "Flask of Eyes" has officially emerged (accompanied above/below by a couple more fitting, "borrowed" images, along with Ash Arceneaux's eye-catching cover). It's currently available from Damnation Books (; Amazon; and Barnes and Noble. Be bold! Be prepared! The thrills and chills are truly right at your fingertips!!!

The creatures in the story are impressions of famous monsters, so those who fancy such lurid rallies may have good cause to read my yarn. It's also laced with some dreamy, alternate-reality passages: a few loops through present, past and future. If such a concoction sounds like your cup of tea, by all means give "Flask" a taste!!!

From my press release: "Set in 1963, 'Flask of Eyes' deals with creatures from another dimension who enter our world to thwart an enemy that plans to alter history. The creatures are empowered by their psychic abilities, which are nurtured from devouring the eyes of their fallen."

Sound enticing? Well, check it out. Let me know what you think. I'll be avidly awaiting your comments. And remember...To Taste the Eyes is to Open One's Mind!!!

(Below a little bonus from my press release: a shot taken in the NJDOE courtyard, near the Delaware River, by my coworker, Melissa Orlowski; I'm proudly displaying a Frankie "trophy" given to me by my coworker, Leslie Foster Leslie, to commemorate my getting "Flask" published. Cool!!!)


  1. This is so exciting! I am ecstatic to read your book and to also understand what you mean by "to taste the eyes, is to open one's mind"...what could this possibly mean?!?!?! I was wondering, you mention your book is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble - does this include an E-book? Thank you, Mr. Housel!

  2. Hello, Hydra Island! The e-book is available through Amazon, along with the paperback. A few other sources also offer the e-book, including Damnation Books. Barnes and Noble only offers the paperback edition. Anyway, I hope you like the story. Indeed, once you read it, you'll SEE what all the mind-expanding hub-bub is about.
