Fans of Clive Barker’s Books of Abarat have had a long wait since the 2004 publication of Book #2 in the series, Days of Magic, Nights of War, but the author/artist has revealed when we might see Book #3, Absolute Midnight. Unfortunately it’s still at least a year or so away.
Barker took to his @RealCliveBarker Twitter account to post the following:
“Phil and Sarah” of course refers to the keepers of the official Clive Barker website, which is also home to the bit of artwork found below, described as “Clive’s painting for Book 3 of Christopher Carrion’s grandmother, Mater Motley“, as well as this tidbit of info: “Abarat: Absolute Midnight will be black both in sentiment and cover design“.
It’s a long wait to September, 2011, but at least we know that Books #4 and #5, The Dynasty Of Dreamers and The Eternal, will follow (hopefully) soon thereafter.
