Perhaps it's reached a point where Robert Reed ought to just give in and legally change the title, but until he does it's actually "A Billion Eves".
"A Billion Eyes" does have a certain charm to it. Some day when he's feeling particularly ornery he could use that title for another story.

"it's actually "A Billion Eves"."
Thanks for the correction, Frank. I should have known better to begin with, but I was working off tiny scribbled notes this morning after a long night at the Event. Sorry about that.
