Publisher's Summary

Few authors can claim to have marked a genre so thoroughly and personally that their words have leaked into every aspect of modern pop culture. Clive Barker is such an author, and the Books of Blood marked his debut - his coming out to the world - in brilliant, unforgettable fashion. Crossroad Press is proud to present Clive Barker's Books of Blood as an audiobook for the first time.
The Books of Blood combine 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 provides the stuff of nightmares in packages too tantalizing to resist.
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 confirm what horror fans everywhere have known for a long time: We will be hearing from Clive Barker for many years to come.

Vol 5

My second ever Barker novel, The Hellbound Heart the other. Some good stuff here for sure but also to me Barker's writing is not my style. He has a great imagination and very detailed and absorbing but his use of vocabulary can be annoying. It almost seems if he is purposely using huge and rare used words to try to impress us but I just think it's annoying and useless. Sometimes I feel I need to have dictionary handy! The Forgotten for which the film Candyman was based upon was a descent story but reading if now years after the movie, I can't help but feel letdown, I wanted more! The story of the lady kidnapped and in fact finds out of the world's Apocalypse that is thwarted by unusual sources by the most unusual of people instead of our supposed leaders was good to start to only be a big silly let down. To me that was the worst, easily. In the Flesh was pretty good if too long.
