Having read, and enjoyed, his novel, I looked forward to this collection of short stories. Only a few having anything to do with his novel. Throne of the Crescent Moon, but all of them are intriguing and show a fine craftsman of words. I'm looking forward to more novels and short stories from him.

In addition to having two stories set in the Crescent Moon Kingdoms universe, this collection also contains a supernatural western, a dark tale of a doctor with a mysterious patient, and the absolutely brilliant "The Faithful Soldier, Prompted." I'd like to talk about "The Faithful Soldier, Prompted," for a second, because it was the greatest joyful surprise when reading Engraved on the Eye. It's rare that a story is futuristic, familiar, and magical all at the same time. "The Faithful Soldier, Prompted" managed to read like very grounded, near-future SF and a well-loved folktale or legend at the same time. The Science Fictional elements are strange but utterly believable, while the elements from old stories matched perfectly. It is both strange and known-in-the-bones familiar. The entire collection is well worth reading, but "The Faithful Soldier, Prompted" took me by surprise.
