When Haverstock's Traveling Curiosus and Wonder Show rolls into Hawley, Kansas one hot midsummer weekend in 1929, no one in town has any idea of the terrors in store. Three teenage girls attend the show's first performance and find themselves drawn into a world of lust, freakish horror, and gruesome deaths ...

Tom Reamy's only novel, published posthumously in 1978, Blind Voices was nominated for the Nebula, Hugo, and BFSA awards and has gone on to become an underground classic of horror/fantasy.
