Review:

“Absorbing and meticulous, this thorough accounting of Clive Barker as a man of boundless imagination is a work of solid scholarship and a complete portrait of a still-young, still-evolving artist who has accomplished much”
Washington Times

“Weaves literary analysis and biography to paint a compelling portrait of a restless writer, director, producer and actor”
Variety

“Reading and completing The Dark Fantastic, I felt transformed. Don’t hesitate to open this physically and metaphysically huge book and enjoy every word of it. You will emerge liberated and ready to discover new worlds of your own”
Nova Express
