The Essential Clive Barker.
by Clive Barker.
FLAT SIGNED ON TITLE PAGE ! By Clive Barker.

First Printing! Sealed in an acid-free protective book cover upon receipt here and then sealed in plastic for complete protection. OVERVIEW: I wonder if the reverse is not also in some way true. That the artist is constantly working on an elaborate and fantasticated self-portrait, but at the end has drawn, unbeknownst, a picture of the world. -- Clive Barker, Private Legends: An Introduction

OVERVIEW: Clive Barker, award-winning and New York Times bestselling author, playwright, artist, producer, director, screenwriter, and one of the worlds master storytellers, writing in the haunting and moving traditions of Poe and Dickens, invites us to join him on a dazzling, wondrous journey through the worlds of his imagination and to experience visions, dreams, love, terror, heaven and hell, and revenge.

As we read, we discover and explore the dream-sea Quiddity and the islands of Ephemeris; the five Dominions of the Imajica, of which the Earth is but an imperfect facet; the rapturous world woven into an ancient, threadbare carpet in a derelict house in Liverpool; Hoods Holiday House where each day contains four seasons and childrens wishes may come true; the Sky Room of Galilee, where the creation of the universe may be witnessed; and the clubs and bars of San Francisco and New York, in which all manner of sexual adventures lie in wait.

In these stories, the real and the miraculous are within a breath of one another, life gives way to death, and death to life; doorways open into other states of existence, and each doorway leads us back to our own dreams and fears.

The Essential Clive Barker is an irresistible narrative compendium that superbly represents the impressive quality and range of Barkers fiction, spanning more than twenty years of writing. It contains more than seventy excerpts from novels and plays and four full-length short stories, all personally selected by Barker, and offers a privileged insight into a remarkable writer and his art.

Hardcover, HarperCollins, 603 pp, VG/VG, remaindered and unread.Signed.
