  • Blind Voices is Tom Reamy's only novel

Story: One summer day in the 1920s, Haverstock's Travelling Curiosus and Wondershow rides into a small Midwestern town. Haverstock's show is a presentation of mysterious wonders, feats of magic, strange creatures, and frightening powers. Three teenage girls attend the opening performance that evening which, for each, promises love and threatens death. the three girls are drawn to the show and its performers-a lusty centaur, Angel the magical albino boy, the rowdy stage hands-but frightened by the enigmatic owner, Haverstock. The girls at first try to dismiss these marvels as trickery, but it becomes all too real, too vivid to be other than nightmare reality.
