The Best of Clive Barker (20 books)Born on October 5th Clive is an English author film director, and visual artist who is probably best known for his work in both fantasy and horror fiction. He is probably best known for the film adaptation of his book The Hellbound Heart which became Hellraiser and of course Candyman but his initial successes came in the form of a series of short story collections called The Books of Blood published in His writing style is not for the faint of heart or the easily offended; his characters are supremely flawed, often exquisitely perverted and always someone you would not want to introduce to your mum.

The protagonist Boone suffers from an unspecified mental illness and has been seeing a psychiatrist by the name of Decker in the hope that he can discover what he has been doing during his fugues. During one of their sessions Decker reveals that Boone is guilty of a series of horrific murders which he has blocked from his memory. Driven to suicide Boone fails to kill himself and comes to believe that perhaps he can find sanctuary within the walls of a mythical city known as Midian.
