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.

A very good follow up to Volume One

Not quite as tightly plotted as Volume one, but still beautifully written, and the performances are absolutely top notch.

Great As Always

Great stories! Clive Barker at his best. Just as good as the first volume. I fully recommend this collection to any fan of horror. People call King the king, but Barker could have easily dethroned him if he had a bigger audience.

Books of Blood 2

Any additional comments?

The Books Of Blood are a compendium of stories that are macabre and some pretty bloody.They twist and turn and make you think,or sick depending on the story.Each were told by someone new.Jeffery Kafer stands out in this series as an excellent narrator,along with quite a few others.
I was gifted a copy through Audioblast for an honest review.
