The Scarlet Gospels


Tales of this world and others. Clive Barker made his name as a short story writer with an unprecedented 6 volumes of THE BOOKS OF BLOOD, before he published a single novel. It is a form in which he excels, and the form in which many of his readers prefer his fiction. Clive is still most associated around the world with his famous creation -- Pinhead, Lord of the Cenobites: the lead character in the HELLRAISER movies; now an iconic symbol. THE SCARLET GOSPELS hinges upon a central novella which brings together Pinhead and Clive's other best known character, psychic detective Harry D'Armour (GREAT AND SECRET SHOW, EVERVILLE, LORD OF ILLUSIONS etc). A huge showdown ensues between these two archetypal creations: and in the end good will defeat evil, and Pinhead will finally die. It's just what Barker fans have been waiting for. In addition, there are collected here somewhere in the region of twenty other tales, some published in magazines, some in anthologies; others (like the Pinhead/D'Amour story) never previously published.There will also be an introduction by the author, and a couple of commentaries, offering a unique insight into this extraordinary author's wonderfully fecund and creative mind.
