A Clive Barker Top 10
In the s, horror was booming. We were similarly blessed by a crop of authors revitalizing the genre with amazing work: Dan Simmons; F. And, you know…Stephen King was doing stuff, too. Horror was no longer hiding underground; it had become legit and was tainting the mainstream with blood and guts. Things were going like a house on fire. Clive Barker dropped into that blazing house like a nuclear bomb. His talent was so prodigious, so ruthlessly creative that it blew everyone away.

My favourite book. I liked the concept and the cover, below , and something must have told me it was worth another go. A second reading made me realise my error. Weaveworld is the story of a realm — The Fugue — concealed from its enemies by being woven into the fabric of a carpet. Cabal Short and sharp, in stark contrast to Weaveworld , and published just a year later. Only it turns out the monsters are actual, literal monsters.
They are truly catering to the hard core connoisseur and possibly the next generation of Barker fans. A world outside ours that is made up of 25 islands each representing one hour in a day, plus a 25th island which represents time outside of time. Each book contains or more paintings done exclusively by Clive himself!

My Clive Barker Collection
Born on October 5th Clive is an English author film director, and visual artist who is probably best known for his work in both fantasy and horror fiction. He is probably best known for the film adaptation of his book The Hellbound Heart which became Hellraiser and of course Candyman but his initial successes came in the form of a series of short story collections called The Books of Blood published in His writing style is not for the faint of heart or the easily offended; his characters are supremely flawed, often exquisitely perverted and always someone you would not want to introduce to your mum. My copy of Cabal is falling apart, I have read it so many times that the words are burned upon my memory and it is in my top ten books of all time. The protagonist Boone suffers from an unspecified mental illness and has been seeing a psychiatrist by the name of Decker in the hope that he can discover what he has been doing during his fugues.
