Books of Blood

In 1986, Clive Barker exploded onto the bestseller lists with his brilliant novel The Damnation Game. Now for the first time in hardcover comes an omnibus edition of The Books of Blood, the three collections of short stories originally published in paperback that heralded Clive Barker's triumphant debut on the horror scene.

The Books of Blood combined the ordinary with the extraordinary while radiating the eroticism that has become Barker's signature. Weaving tales of the everyday world transformed into an unrecognizable place, where reason no longer exists and logic ceases to explain the workings of the universe, Clive Barker proves himself once again a master of the genre.

From an ancient Roman statue that steals the soul in order to survive, to an old theatre where evil makes longdead movies stars come back to life to fulfill its own deadly purpose, to Rawhide Rex, whose monstrous power brings death to those he catches and insanity to those who escape, The Books Of Blood resonates with a bone-chilling terror that is not for the faint heart.

Never one to shy away from the unimaginable or the unspeakable, Clive Barker breathes life into our deepest, darkest nightmares, creating visions that are at once terrifying, tender, and witty. The Books of Blood confirmes what horror fans everywhere have discovered: We will be hearing from Clive Barker for many years to come.
