In the middle of the night in September 2013, Junior Burke saw a bear and a mountain lion prowling the street outside his Lyons home. If the bizarre sighting didn’t shatter the illusion that the Naropa University associate professor was safe from harm, the next week’s catastrophic flooding—which destroyed his family’s home and nearly all of their belongings—certainly did. Burke’s new horror novel, A Thousand Eyes, reflects his attempt to deal with the traumatic memories. “These days, what’s normal is so disturbing that the paranormal almost seems a welcome escape,” Burke says. The book was released May 25, and he’ll be at the Tattered Cover Book Store on Colfax Avenue this month for a reading and a talk about how the writing experience helped him come to terms with vulnerability.
