Publisher Comments:

With the 1984 publication of Books of Blood, Clive Barker became an overnight literary sensation. He was hailed by Stephen King as "the future of horror," and won both the British and World Fantasy Awards. Now, with his numerous bestsellers, graphic novels, and hit movies like the Hellraiser films, Clive Barker has become an industry unto himself. But it all started here, with this tour de force collection that rivals the dark masterpieces of Edgar Allan Poe. Read him. And rediscover the true meaning of fear.

Review:

"Bloody good fun." Library Journal

Review:

"What Barker does...makes the rest of us look like we've been asleep for the past ten years." Stephen King

Review:

"Barker's eye is unblinking; he drags out our terrors from the shadows and forces us to look upon them and despair or laugh with relief." The Washington Post

Review:

"Mixing elements of horror, science fiction and surrealist literature, Barker's work reads like a cross between Stephen King and South American novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He creates a world where our biggest fears appear to be our own dreams." Boston Herald

Review:

"Mr. Barker is much more than a genre writer, and his extravagantly unconventional inventions are ingenious refractions of our common quest to experience and understand the mysterious world around us and the mysteries within ourselves." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Clive Barker assaults our senses and our psyche, seeking not so much to tingle our spine as to snap it altogether." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Outstanding...a powerful and fascinating writer with a brilliant imagination." J. G. Ballard

This book is compiled of short horror stories, and they are a good. Some are better than others, but overall a good read. Stephen King said Clive Barker gives him nightmares, come on with a title like books of blood how can you go wrong!
