This is part of my senior thesis work. The idea is a series of Stephen King wrap-around book covers based on short stories. This one is about a retired astronaut who grows alien eyes on his hands. The eyes proceed to kill people and cause general havoc.

A long time ago I somehow got a Night Shift book with the eye covered hand wrapped in gauze on the cover. That anthology is what turned me on to short stories.
