I saw him promoting this on Craig Ferguson's show. Sounds interesting. I've never read any Barker, so I might pick this up.

I have this right here next to me but I'm so busy with work I probably won't get around to it anytime soon. Of course I could read it on the bus to work but this is new Clive Barker... I don't want to read something like that on the fucking bus.

Jeez, Gutenberg's press sure was full of typos!

Decent little book, far from Barker at his best but hey, at least it was written for adults. And to be honest even a mediocre Barker is a few times better than what pretty much anyone else churns out. After having read through too many lame Leisure paperback originals this was certainly a welcome reminder of how good writers write.

I loved the book. From it's unique packaging to twisted first person perspective, this book was one of my favorite reads of 2007.

I wanna know if anyone else almost burned the thing when they were done with it. I won't lie, I seriously thought about it.

The repetitiveness of the plea irked me more than anything.

If it wasn't a library book, I might have.

Do you think he actually wanted to see if people would burn it?
I mean, perhaps that was why he had the fucker keep asking you to do it.

Not Barker at his best but certainly not a bad read at all. I wondered if he did it as a dry run for getting back into the genre - the long-promised Scarlet Gospels supposedly being his full-fledged return to the Hellraiser mythos.

I'd say so, yeah.
By the way, you misunderstand me. I really loved this book.
I got really sucked in, hence why I thought about burning it.
You wouldn't get it unless you've read the book though.
