Master of Horror/NY Times Best-Selling Author Clive Barker Signs With Beacon Audio Books

Clive Barker is a New York Times Best-Selling author, film director, video game designer and visual artist best known for his work in both fantasy and horror. Barker came to prominence in the mid-1980s with a series of show stories which established him as a leading young horror writer. He has since written many novels and other works, and his fiction has been adapted into films, notably the incredibly popular Hellraiser and Candyman series.

Barker's distinctive writing style is characterised by the notion of hidden fantastical worlds coexisting with our own, the role of sexuality in the supernatural, and the construction of coherent, complex and detailed universes. Barker has referred to this style as "dark fantasy" or the "fantastique". His stories are notable for a deliberate blurring of the distinction between binary opposites such as Hell and Heaven, or pleasure and pain (the latter particularly so in The Hellbound Heart).

When the Books of Blood were first published in the United States in paperback, Stephen King was quoted on the book covers: "I have seen the future of horror, his name is Clive Barker."

A critically acclaimed author, artist, film director and producer, Clive Barker is iconic in the world of horror and dark fantasy. He has now teamed up with Beacon Audio Books to produce, narrate and distribute two incredible books, "Incarnations" and "Forms of Heaven". These wildly popular works will be relished by Clive Barker fans who love the wicked imagination of one of the best-known fantasy/horror writers of all time.
