Praise for Clive Barker:

MAIL ON SUNDAY

From the Back Cover:

Armageddon begins quietly

In the small Californian town of Palomo Grove several children are born, the offspring of the Jaff, a man-spirit obsessed with darkness and depravity, and of the Fletcher, a force for light, who has fought the Jaff across America.

Their prize is the Art, the greatest power known to mankind, a doorway to the dream-life of the species. To possess it, the two men intend to fight through their children. Until their children fall in love. Then all hell breaks loose.

This time, they will fight to the death, gathering their armies from the souls of Palomo Grove. Nightmares will walk the streets. Dreams will be made real. At last, the Grove will see the Great and Secret Show.

'One of the few writers who has altered an entire field: more than anyone since Lovecraft' China Miéville
