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.

Another great edition

Although its definitely not my favourite in the series B.O.B 3 adds some good stories rife with the usual weired maham and untapped overflowing horror

always a love

I've always loved these books and hearing the performances do them justice is so nice. so few know of this series of shorts aside from the notable ones that got film status.

Clive Barker transports you; to hell.

Clive barker is one of my top 5 writers period. he transports the readers, sometimes to places you might not want to or be expecting to go.
His works able to be listened to over and over, and I'm my mind is betterwith each reading.
I have started to really enjoy Clives work on Audible.

Phenomenal.

Like all of these thus far, this was a phenomenal horror anthology. Rawhead Rex is a stand out monster story, but all of them are great.
