Clive Barker - A ​vér evangéliuma
Rossz ​idők járnak az okkult tudás képviselőire: valaki sorra gyilkolja a legdörzsöltebb varázslókat a Föld különböző pontjain. Néhányan összegyűlnek, hogy feltámasszák egyik társukat, ám a szertartás balul sül el… Harry D’Amour magánnyomozó egy New Orleans-i bárban mereng a múltján, mikor megbízást kap halottlátó, vak barátnőjétől: tüntessen el minden terhelő nyomot egy frissen meghalt férfi titkos vidéki nyaralójából. Harry egészen mást talál a helyszínen, mint amire számított… Mindeközben a Pokolban sem áll meg az élet: valaki Lucifer trónjára tör… Clive Barker regénye nagyszabású vízió a Jó és a Rossz világméretű küzdelméről, hajszálpontos leírása a létezésbe vetett ember kiszolgáltatottságának, a rettegés és a testi vágy működésének. Irodalmi csemege: a horror műfaja csúcsra járatva.

Clive Barker - Mister ​B. Gone
You ​hold in your hands not a book at all, but a terrifying embodiment of purest evil. Can you feel the electric tingle in your fingers as you are absorbed by the demon Jakabok's tale of his unintentional ascent from the depths of the Inferno? Do you sense the cold dread worming its way into your bloodstream, your sinews, the marrow of your bones as you read more deeply into his earthly education and unspeakable acts? The filth you now grasp has been waiting patiently for you for nearly six hundred years. And now, before you are completely in its thrall, you would do well to follow the foul creature's admonition and destroy this abomination of ink and paper before you turn a single leaf and are lost forever. You have been warned.

Clive Barker - Everville
Horror's ​wunderkind returns with a spectacular sequel to his masterpiece of dark fantasy, The Great and Secret Show. As before, the saga of how our world commingles with the dream-sea world of Quiddity-and the wondrous, sometimes malevolent lands and beings that lie beyond its shores-provides the British author with a vast canvas on which he paints a riot of Boschean images. So complex are Barker's imaginings-from a celestial hierarchy that toys with human affairs; a geometry in which a pyramidic city can balance on its tip-that readers new to his cosmos could use a glossary or map that, alas, the publishers do not provide. Still, most will be swept away by his marvels, begining with the horrific decimation of a party of Old West pioneers by an interloper from the parallel world of Quiddity. Grotesqueries, dazzlements and titanic battles between humans and nonhumans abound as, in the present, several men, women and creatures, many returning from the prequel, are caught up in the attempt by two corrupt men to attain the "Art," the power by which they can manipulate time and space. Meanwhile, the Iad, a sentient force of immense destructiveness, breaks into our world on a mountaintop above the town of Everville, Oreg. But for all his facility at apocalyptic wonders, Barker's greatest strength remains his grasp on the yearnings of the heart and spirit. At times profoundly moving as flawed heroes and heroines martyr themselves to love or goodness, this novel confirms the author's position not only as one of horror's most potent and fertile minds but also as one of modern fiction's premier metaphysicians.

Clive Barker - Abarat ​(angol)
A ​dazzling fantasy adventure for all ages, the first of a quartet. Abarat: an archipelago of amazement and wonder. A land made up of twenty-five islands, each one representing one hour of the day, each one a unique place of adventure and danger (and one mysterious place out of time), all ruled over by the evil Christopher Carrion, Lord of Midnight, and his monstrous grandmother, Mater Motley. Candy Quackenbush, a 16-year old from Chickentown, Minnesota, crosses by accident from our world into Abarat, and discovers she has been there many, many times before. She has friends there and she has enemies. As Candy makes her journey between all the islands of the archipelago, she will discover a plot by Christopher Carrion to block out the Sun, Moon and stars to achieve a condition of Permanent Midnight. In order to prevent this disaster, Candy must find the courage to confront the Lord of Midnight; and in doing so come to know who she really is: a revelation which will transform her own understanding of her place in the epic events. The first book of Abarat is a spellbinding adventure for all ages, combining the heartstopping tension of a thriller with the powerful charm of the most enduring fable. And beneath all, it possesses the quicksilver imagination of one of the finest writers at work today. The four books of Abarat have been rightly called Clive Barker's Narnia, his Wonderland. A sumptuous treat that will capture the imaginations of adults and children alike.

Clive Barker - Abarat ​- Varázsórák, véres éjek
Abarat: ​a lélegzetelállító csodák világa. Huszonöt szigetből áll, amelyeken a nap egy-egy órájába dermedt az idő. Ez a mágikus szigetvilág a legrafináltabb veszedelmekkel és legfordulatosabb kalandokkal szembesíti látogatóit. Az egész fölött a rettegett Kremátor Kristóf uralkodik gonosz nagyanyjával, Mánia Mutterrel, s legújabb hátborzongató terve az, hogy kioltja a Napot és a Holdat, hogy Örök Éjfél köszönthessen a varázsvilágra. Haplatán Cuki, a csirkevári tinilány újra össze kell szedje barátait és minden bátorságát, hogy a rá vadászó orgyilkosokat elkerülve, kivehesse részét az Órák küszöbön álló Nagy Háborújából. A Korbács és a Pokolkeltő World Fantasy-díjas szerzője ott folytatja történetét, ahol az Abarat első kötetében abbahagyta. Komplex, mitikus világa ezúttal is rabul ejti olvasóit; valamennyi korosztálynak szóló meséje varázslatos labirintus kapuit nyitja meg, amely minden fordulónál meglepetésekkel szolgál.

They discover the Imajica. Imajica is many things: an epic novel of vast panoramas and intimate, obsessive passions, embracing ghosts and reflections as well as the human and the divine.

Clive Barker - Imagica
Als ​Charlie Estabrook das erste Mal der schönen Judith begegnete, war er sogleich hin und weg. Dass sie noch mit dem von der Frauenwelt weithin begehrten Künstler John Furie Zacharias, kurz Gentle genannt, liiert war, machte ihm nicht viel aus. Er wartete, bis seine Zeit gekommen war und heiratete das Objekt seiner Begierde, doch waren auch ihm nur fünf glückliche Jahre mit Judith vergönnt. Die anschließende Trennung rief einen solchen Schmerz der Demütigung bei ihm hervor, dass Charles nun seinen Chauffeur Chant damit beauftragt, einen Killer zu finden, der Judith ins Jenseits befördert. Pie‘oh‘pah soll der Beste seines Fachs sein und wird von Estabrook nach New York geschickt, wo sie mittlerweile mit einem neuen Mann lebt. Doch dann plagen den gehörnten Liebhaber Gewissensbisse, und er wendet sich an Gentle, den Killer aufzuhalten. Da Gentle gerade selbst eine weitere Trennung von einer Frau verarbeiten muss und von dem Händler Chester Klein keine Aufträge für Fälschungen erwarten kann, reist er ebenfalls nach New York und kann tatsächlich den Anschlag auf seine ehemalige Geliebte verhindern. Gentle ist allerdings so von Pie’oh’pahs gestaltwandlerischen Fähigkeiten fasziniert, dass er sich von Pie in ein Mysterium einweihen lässt, dass nur wenigen Eingeweihten vertraut ist: Die Erde ist nur eine von fünf Domänen.

Clive Barker - Coldheart ​Canyon
Hollywood ​has made a star of Todd Pickett. But time is catching up with him. He doesn't have the perfect looks he had last year. After plastic surgery goes awry, Todd needs somewhere to hide away for a few months while his scars heal. As Todd settles into a mansion in Coldheart Canyon -- a corner of the city so secret it doesn't even appear on any map -- Tammy Lauper, the president of his fan club, comes to the City of Angels determined to solve the mystery of Todd's disappearance. Her journey will not be an easy one. The closer she gets to Todd the more of Coldheart Canyon's secrets she uncovers: the ghosts of the A-list stars who came to the Canyon for wild parties; Katya Lupi, the cold-hearted, now forgotten star for whom the Canyon was named, who is alive and exquisite after a hundred years; and, finally, the door in the bowels of Katya's dream palace that reputedly open up to another world, the Devil's Country. No one who has ever ventured to this dark, barbaric corner of hell has returned without their souls shadowed by what they'd seen and done. Mingling an insider's view of modern Hollywood with a wild streak of visionary fantasy, Coldheart Canyon is a book without parallel: an irresistible and unmerciful picture of Hollywood and its demons, told with all the style and raw narrative power that have made Clive Barker's books and films a phenomenon worldwide.

Clive Barker - Abarat ​- Abszolút éjfél
Haplatán ​Cukinak különös barátai vannak, olyanok, mint Malingó, a szökött fegyenc, vagy a János-fivérek, akik ugyan egy testen osztoznak, de sosem egyazon véleményen. E színes csapat Abarat furcsa világát járja, ahol a szigetek egy soha véget nem érő nap órái, és semmi nem az, aminek látszik. Bárhova mennek azonban, gondokba ütköznek, s a legnagyobb mind közül egy titkos összeesküvés, mely mögött Mánia Mutter áll. Ő akar uralkodni valamennyi sziget fölött, és ennek elérése érdekében semmilyen eszköztől nem riad vissza. Ha kell, elsötétíti az eget, kioltja a napokat, holdakat, csillagokat, hogy elhozza az abszolút éjfélt. Újabb kötet a horror koronázatlan királyának Abarat sorozatában, melyet az Amerikai Könyvtárosok Társasága beválasztott minden idők legjobb ifjúsági regényei közé. "Mint irodalmi előképeit, Dorothyt vagy Alice-t, a 16 éves Cukit is hétköznapi életéből ragadják el a csodákkal és rémségekkel teli titokzatos világba. Barker mindemellett egy talpraesett, mai lányhőst alkot meg, aki bátor, találékony, lojális, és hajlandó akár föl is áldozni magát egy jobb jövő érdekében." - Los Angeles Times

Clive Barker - Galilee
Over ​many years and many books, Clive Barker has earned a reputation as the thinking person's horror writer. His novels have mixed fantasy, psychology, and sheer creepiness in almost equal quantities, and while the gore quotient remains relatively low, the tension always runs high. In Galilee, however, Barker soft-pedals the ghoulish in favor of the gothic. His novel (or as the author would have it, "romance") tells the tale of two warring families caught up in a disastrous web of corruption, illicit sexuality, and star-crossed love, with a soupçon of the supernatural thrown in as well. On one side are the wealthy Gearys--a fictional stand-in for the Kennedys--and on the other are the Barbarossas, a mysterious black clan that has been around since the time (quite literally) of Adam. Galilee chronicles the twisted course of this centuries-old family feud, which centers around the magical Barbarossa matriarch Cesaria and her son Galilee. Indeed, it's the latter figure--one part Heathcliff to one part Christ--whose relationship with the Geary women sets a match to the entire powder keg of hostility and resentment. Mixing standard clichés of romance with his own peculiarly deep-fried version of the Southern gothic, Baker has come up with an intelligent and shamelessly amusing potboiler. (from Amazon.com)

Clive Barker - Pokoli ​versenyfutás
Maga ​a Pokol jött fel London utcáira és tereire azon a szeptemberen, jeges fuvallatával, a Kilencedik Bugyor legmélyéről; fagyosságát még az indián nyár bágyasztó hősége sem enyhíthette. Ugyanolyan gondosan szőtte terveit, mint bármikor, szövevényes, fortélyos terveket. Ez alkalommal talán egy kicsit még jobban kidolgozta, mint máskor, kétszer-háromszor is ellenőrzött minden apró részletet, hogy biztosítsa győzelmét ebben a végzetes játszmában. Mindenki azt hiszi, hogy ez egy jótékonysági futás, melynek összes bevételét a rákkutatásra fordítják... ám ez alkalommal egészen másról van szó, sokkal nagyobb a tét: az emberiség sorsa. Joel Jones presztízsből indul a futamon, vissza akar vágni vetélytársának, Frank McCloudnak, aki legyőzte őt az olimpián. Ám arról Joelnek sejtelme sincs, hogy ez alkalommal nem McCloud a legveszélyesebb ellenfele. A Pokol versenyzője is rajthoz áll, és ő nem túl sportszerű... A Clive Barker korai írásait bemutató Vérkönyvek-sorozat második kötete ismét öt remek rémtörténetet tartalmaz: a címadó Pokoli versenyfutás mellett a Rettegés, a Jaqueline Ess akarata és végső akarata, Az apák bőrei és A Morgue utcai újabb gyilkosságok című műveket, a műfaj igazi gyöngyszemeit. "Amit Barker művel, amellett úgy tűnik, mintha mi, többiek átaludtuk volna az utolsó tíz évet." - Stephen King
