The Glass Eye was an eccentric Toledo, Ohio-based monthly reader/zine published by Edward Shimborske III that focused on Ohio area music and featured exclusive interviews with both regional and national acts. The debut issue hit stands in 1994 and ran until 2006. Like a counter-culture version of Entertainment Weekly, Shimborske's highly praised 'zine featured lengthy interviews with musicians, novelists, actors, adult-film stars, boxers, directors, rappers, professional wrestlers, models and witches. Readers were never surprised to find pieces on Zamboni-drivers next to reflections from cast-members of the X-Files and The Wizard of Oz. In fact, the small publishing house printed pieces on everyone from Ozzy Osbourne and Vincent Bugliosi to Kid Gavilán and Catherine Bach to Rudy Ray Moore and Bernie Wrightson.
