With the 1984 publication of the first three volumes of The Books of Blood, Clive Barker became an overnight literary sensation. He was hailed by Stephen King as "the future of horror," and won both the British and World Fantasy Awards. He followed, in 1985, with the final three volumes. Now, with his numerous bestsellers, graphic novels, hit movies, and more, Clive Barker has become an industry unto himself. But it all started here, with these tour de force collections of stories that rival the dark masterpieces of Edgar Allan Poe.
Clive Barker has long wanted to realize all six volumes in a single edition. This, the first and only complete edition, includes a new preface by Peter Atkins and -- for the first time in North America in any edition, the final story of The Books of Blood -- "On Jerusalem Street."
