The essential Clive Barker 1st edition 1st printing

£4.99

Product description

The essential Clive Barker 1st edition 1st printing. Published by Harper Collins 1999. Hardback with dust jacket. page edges are lightly tanned. General condition is very good.

With a special introduction by Armistead Maupin, author of Tales of the City, this is a unique selection of the author's best short stories and extracts from his novels, chosen by Clive and accompanied by a personal commentary which reveals the man behind the art. Clive Barker takes us on a personal tour through the dark and fantastic land of his imagination. Huge in scope, this unique collection examines the work of a man who has taken us further than any other writer of modern fiction: from the fantastic lands of The Fugue (Weaveworld) and the Dominions (Imajica) to the uncharted waters of the dream sea, Quiddity (The Great and Secret Show and Everville). His peerless imagination has only been matched by both his storytelling -- from the groundbreaking series of short stories, the Books of Blood, which served as a wake-up call to a floundering horror industry, to the grand metaphysical vision of Galilee -- and his ability to create memorable characters such as Will Rabjohns (Sacrament), Shadwell the salesman (Weaveworld) and Judith (Imajica).;In addition to this, The Essential Clive Barker includes an introduction by the renowned Armistead Maupin, author of Tales of the City, and a specially written commentary by Clive which gives a brand new insight to the man and his Art. A unique project by a unique author, The Essential Clive Barker will appeal both to long-time fans of his work, and anyone with an interest in great fiction.
