In May, Clive Barker’s The Scarlet Gospels will be released by St. Martin’s Press. It’s safe to say I have never anticipated a release more highly. It’s been a long time since it was first announced, and hindered by the terrible health issues that Clive has had to endure. He has persisted though, and now the time is nearly upon us. The Scarlet Gospels promises the final chapter of the Hellraiser saga – Clive’s vision on the page – far from the tragic movie sequels we’ve had to suffer through. Equally exciting is that Pinhead and the Cenobites will be pitted against another great character from Clive’s works, Harry D’Amour, the noir investigator drawn to the occult or possibly the other way around. Other than that I’m avoiding any possible spoiler information! There will definitely be a review forthcoming on The Books of Blood.
Book Cover Blurb:
The Scarlet Gospels takes readers back many years to the early days of two of Barker’s most iconic characters in a battle of good and evil as old as time: The long-beleaguered detective Harry D’Amour, investigator of all supernatural, magical, and malevolent crimes faces off against his formidable, and intensely evil rival, Pinhead, the priest of hell. Barker devotees have been waiting for The Scarlet Gospels with bated breath for years, and it’s everything they’ve begged for and more. Bloody, terrifying, and brilliantly complex, fans and newcomers alike will not be disappointed by the epic, visionary tale that is The Scarlet Gospels. Barker’s horror will make your worst nightmares seem like bedtime stories. The Gospels are coming. Are you ready?
