Seeing Double is a gen split-book anthology of Shadow Chasers and Seeing Things fiction.

The Shadows Chasers half is subtitled "The National Register" and contains 73 pages; the Seeing Things half is subtitled "Toronto Gazette" and contains 23 pages.

The cover art is by Ann Larimer, and the interior art is by Ann Larimer and M.D. Bloemker.

This zine was to have had a second issue, one that was all Shadow Chasers called "Shadow Play," but despite a four-story summary in Pop Stand Express #12, it never made it off the ground.

Short Descriptions of Both Shows

From a flyer printed in The Midnight Special #2:

SEEING THINGS: A Canadian comedy-drama about an ordinary guy with an extraordinary problem: he gets visions. Louie Ciccone is a reporter who has psychic flashes about murders, and then sets out to solve them. How many TV heroes are fat, forty and bald?? SHADOW CHASERS: The show about two guys (one wild and crazy, the other with a LOT of patience) out looking for the out-of-ordinary. Will Benny drive Jonathan crazy, and will Dr. Moorhouse ever live this down?
