Publisher's Summary

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.

Bloodier

Would you listen to The Books of Blood, Volume 2 again? Why?

Of course, and I have done.

What did you like best about this story?

That there are many stories, each one different.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yeah, though it is best not to. I'd do it in smaller sittings, savouring each story.

Any additional comments?

These stories are good, seriously good. Barker is one talented writer and one very disturbed individual...
