With the publication of Books of Blood
, Clive Barker became an overnight literary sensation. His tour de force collection of brilliantly disturbing tales demonstrated a genius for dark invention that rivaled Poe and Sade. He was hailed by Stephen King as "the future of horror," and won both the British and World Fantasy Awards.

films, Clive Barker has become an industry unto himself. It is his powerful writing style and arresting imagery that have made Books of Blood
a classic--and Clive Barker a cult phenomenon.
