An all-original horror anthology set in the world of CliveBarker's cult film masterpiece, Nightbreed, and including stories bySeanan McGuire, Amber Benson, Karl Alexander, Nancy Holder, and more!
Clive Barker's Nightbreed has been controversial since the moment it was released in a version edited by the studio and roundly condemned byBarker, who wrote and directed the film. A virtually instant cult film,Nightbreed--based on Barker's novella, Cabal--was nominated for threeSaturn Awards and won several prizes at European film festival.
The impact of Nightbreed goes beyond the screen; along with Cabal andBarker's seminal The Books of Blood, it has inspired many horrorwriters, some of whom have gathered in this tribute anthology.
Midian Unmade tells the stories of the Nightbreed after the fall of their city, Midian. Driven from their homes, their friends and family members slain beforetheir eyes, the monsters become a mostly-hidden diaspora. Some arehunted; others, hunters. Some seek refuge. Others want revenge.

CampbellAward-winner Seanan McGuire; Bram Stoker Award winner Weston Ochse,David J. Schow, winner of the World Fantasy Award, writer of thescreenplay for The Crow; New York Times bestselling writer StephenWoodworth; and many more--23 stories in all.
