    Review quote
    "Barker's eye is unblinking; he drags out our terrors from the shadows and forces us to look upon them and despair or laugh with relief." --The Washington Post "Mixing elements of horror, science fiction and surrealist literature, Barker's work reads like a cross between Stephen King and South American novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He creates a world where our biggest fears appear to be our own dreams." --Boston Herald "Mr. Barker is much more than a genre writer, and his extravagantly unconventional inventions are ingenious refractions of our common quest to experience and understand the mysterious world around us and the mysteries within ourselves." --The New York Times Book Review "Clive Barker assaults our senses and our psyche, seeking not so much to tingle our spine as to snap it altogether." --Los Angeles Times "Outstanding ... a powerful and fascinating writer with a brilliant imagination." --J.G. Ballard
