Hey, you. You, wearing the Five Nights at Freddy’s hoodie! You were up all night marathoning Scott Cawthon’s games, weren’t you? Well, it’s time to step away from the games. Read a book, for God’s sake.

A book about Five Nights at Freddy’s.

Scott’s joyful bit of literature, titled Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes, is coming to Kindle on December 22.

Despite its imminent release date, we really don’t know a lot about the book at this point. Is it a work of fiction? An autobiography? A “How I infiltrated your nightmares with the aid of some janky animatronics” tell-all from Scott?


A work of fiction is likeliest. Freddy takes up the majority of the book’s blood-red cover, while his cracked compatriots, Chica, Bonnie, and Foxy loom in the background. Not really what you’d choose to decorate a biography — but if there’s one thing we know about the elusive Scott Cawthon, it’s that he’s full of surprises.

Either way, Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes is exactly what humanity’s Savior would want you to read over the Christmas holidays, so dig right in.
