From the dustjacket:
CLIVE BARKER'S SHADOWS IN EDEN is a unique exploration of the career of literature's young Turk of imaginative fiction.
From the Grand Guignol stage plays of the 1970s, through his notorious groundbreaking collections, THE BOOKS OF BLOOD, acclaimed novels THE DAMNATION GAME, WEAVEWORLD, CABAL, and THE GREAT AND SECRET SHOW, and bestselling comics such as Hellraiser and Tapping The Vein, to his directing and screenwriting career with Hellraiser, Hellbound and Nightbreed, Barker's diverse output is chronicled here for the first time.
Produced in close collaboration with the writer himself, CLIVE BARKER'S SHADOW IN EDEN contains insightful commentaries by some of the leading practitioners of the fantastique, including J.G. Ballard, Ramsey Campbell, David Cronenberg, Stephen King, Lisa Tuttle, and others. Also included are interviews, introductions, and articles by Barker and the most extensive bibliography of his work ever assembled.
Illuminated with rare photographs, stills, jacket art and illustrations - many from Clive's private collection - and boasting a new afterword by the author himself, CLIVE BARKER'S SHADOWS IN EDEN is a book that no horror fan or Clive Barker aficionado will want to be without.
