Their Eyes Are Moving: Creepy True Stories of the Kids´ Toys...Perhaps one of the less common things people feel is a fear of dolls. There is something about those little bodies and creepy little faces that just put people on edge, regardless of any past experience they´ve had, movie they´ve seen, or story they´ve heard. Pediophobia, as this fear is scientifically named, can range from modern Barbie and Bratz dolls all the way to porcelain and antique dolls. Some only have a fear of one kind of doll, others have a fear of every doll imaginable. But, all in all, the fear is generally classified as one of the many phobias people face in life, and isn´t taken seriously. Then, there are times that dolls should be feared. Not all dolls, not all of a specific kind of doll, but dolls that have been grasped by beings we can´t see. Dolls that have been brought under the power of beings we can´t normally hear or feel. Dolls that have become haunted.... Though they look innocent, harmless, and like the perfect companion for any little boy or girl, these dolls are malevolent, malicious, and horrifying. There´s nothing playful about any one of them.... Here is a preview of what´s inside...

What happens when an entire modern state´s material culture becomes abruptly obsolete? How do ordinary people encounter what remains? In this ethnography, Jonathan Bach examines the afterlife of East Germany following the fall of the Berlin Wall, as things and places from that vanished socialist past continue to circulate and shape the politics of memory. What Remains traces the unsettling effects of these unmoored artifacts on the German present, arguing for a rethinking of the role of the everyday as a site of reckoning with difficult pasts. Bach juxtaposes four sites where the stakes of the everyday appear: products commodified as nostalgia, amateur museums dedicated to collecting everyday life under socialism, the ´´people´s palace´´ that captured the national imagination through its destruction, and the feared and fetishized Berlin Wall. Moving from the local, the intimate, and the small to the national, the impersonal, and the large, this book´s interpenetrating chapters show the unexpected social and political force of the ordinary in the production of memory. What Remains offers a unique vantage point on the workings of the everyday in situations of radical discontinuity, contributing to new understandings of postsocialism and the intricate intersection of material remains and memory.

Among the survivors are Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, who is barricaded inside a luxurious spa. Amid shadowy, corrupt ruling powers and new, gene-spliced life forms, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move, but they can´t stay locked away.
