EVERYBODY IS A BOOK OF BLOOD;
WHEREVER WE'RE OPENED, WE'RE RED. � Clive Barker

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" in digital 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.

This second volume contains the short stories : "Dread," "Hell's Event," "Jacqueline Ess: Her Will and Testament," "The Skins of the Fathers," and "New Murders in the Rue Morgue," as well as a new introduction by author Steven Savile.

I have been a long time reader of Clive Barker (plus he was very nice to me at a book signing - so I like him as a person...). As a book collector, I always wanted to have copies of The Books of Blood but could not afford them and/or could not find them. When they came out in Nook form I was thrilled and read them all straight through. This is some of Clive Barker's best writing. If you are looking for a great read - these books should be at the top of your list...!!!
