Hellbound Hearts is one of the coolest literary projects happening in the horror genre right now. In fact, short of Barker getting off his bum and giving us the goddamn third book of the Art, there isn’t much else that could get me this excited!

– Hellbound Hollywood by Mick Garris
– Mechanisms by Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola (illustrated by Mike Mignola)
– Every Wrong Turn by Tim Lebbon

Of course, there’s also a foreword by Clive himself.
