"Everybody is a book of blood; wherever we're opened, we're red." For those who only know Clive Barker through his long multigenre novels, this one-volume edition of the Books of Blood is a welcome chance to acquire the 16 remarkable horror short stories with which he kicked off his career. For those who already know these tales, the poignant introduction is a window on the creator's mind.
I LOVED THIS BOOK! There were so many deep and dark story. I think my favorite was Midnight Meat Train. The imagery Barker paints is beautiful and disturbing. As I was reading this I felt like I was there inside the stories. Barker is a master of horror and I look forward to reading his other pieces of work.
I give this a 4 out of 5
