Best-selling author Clive Barker was born in Liverpool, England, and he began his literary career writing, directing, and acting for the stage. Following the publication of his short stories The Books of Blood in 1984, Barker went on to write numerous best-selling novels, including The Great and Secret Show, Weaveworld, Imajica, The Thief of Always, Everville, Sacrament, Galilee, The Essential Clive Barker, and most recently his Hollywood ghost story, Coldheart Canyon. October 2002 saw the publication of his latest work, the first of a quartet of books for HarperCollins Publisher / Joanna Cotler Books, entitles Abarat.
As a screenwriter, director, and film producer, he is credited with the Hellraiser and Candyman pictures, as well as Nightbreed, Lord of Illusions, and Gods and Monsters.
An accomplished painter and visual artist, Barker has had exhibitions in New York and Los Angeles. He lives in Los Angeles, California with his partner, the photographer David Armstrong.From Publishers Weekly:
Who'd have suspected that Clive Barker's novella The Hellbound Heart would spawn the feature film Hellraiser (helmed by the author himself), a gaggle of uneven sequels and a following that craved even more tales of twisted individuals and demonic Cenobites? At 342 pages, this third collection of the Hellraiser-inspired comicsmight look like a cornucopia of kinky chills, gore and fetishism. Yet while there is occasionally some impressive art, the overall content is extremely disappointing, pretentious and, above all, repetitive. Most of the stories follow the by-the-numbers scenario of a disaffected malcontent figuring out the solution to a puzzle box that opens a doorway into the nightmare world of the Cenobites, thereby dooming himself to eternal sadomasochistic torment. That formula is wearying after one or two run-throughs, and more than that—the 15 stories read like they came from an assembly line—is an exercise in tedium. There's also a gallery of some 100 one-page illustrations, mostly mediocre, that serves as filler. Matrix completists may be interested in the adaptations by the nonprolific director Larry Wachowski. Clive Barker's brand name notwithstanding, few will find this book worth the price.
