Last month Clive announced that "The Candle In The Cloud" might be published in the next year to year and a half.
Well now it's official AND available to order.
Clive's very first novel "The Candle In The Cloud", written when he was 17, has just been released by his new publishing arm "SeraphimInk". Along with this is also the short story "The Wood On The Hill" which he wrote when he was 12.
This is a chance to look into Clive's mind from the very early stages of his writing career and to see how he and his stories have evolved.
The book is available in a regular cloth bound first edition as well as a variety of more collectible versions which can be found at his official web store :
Subterranean Press To Release 8 Clive Barker Books In 2014
Subterranean Press will be releasing several of Clive's stories in January 2014.
First up is "Chiliad: A Meditation". "Chiliad" consists of two interrelated stories, stories filtered through the melancholy imagination of a narrator perched on the banks of a river that flows backward and forward through time. The first movement, “Men and Sin,” takes place in the millennial year of 1000 AD. The second, “A Moment at the River’s Heart,” occurs exactly one thousand years—the length of a “chiliad”—later, as the new millennium approaches."
"Six Destinies" (the novella for "Tortured Souls") will also be released shortly after the "Chiliad". This is the collection of short stories packaged with the "Tortured Souls" line of action figures from McFarlane toys. It will be fully illustrated.
Dark Regions Press are releasing a special edition of Clive Barker's classic story "The Midnight Meat Train" from his best-selling Books of Blood (Volume One).
Three signed limited edition hardcovers will be available of the story, all featuring a new afterword and interior artwork from the author.
This edition of "The Midnight Meat Train" will include special content and more created and/or based on the story. In addition to the regular hardcovers Dark Regions Press will also release an ultra-deluxe bound in alligator skin and pages printed on an offset press.
"The Midnight Meat Train" by Clive Barker signed hardcovers to be release early or mid 2014.
Clive Barker's "Scarlet Gospels" To Be Released by St Martin's Press
This just in from Clive Barker's official site "Revelations":
"Clive is delighted to announce that St Martin's Press has acquired world English rights to publish The Scarlet Gospels, his upcoming novel featuring Pinhead and Harry D'Amour.
St Martin's anticipates a winter 2015 publication date - more from Clive soon..! "
This is very exciting news to many Clive Barker fans. "The Scarlet Gospels" is the much anticipated story of the meeting between two of Clive's most famous characters, Harry D'Amour and Pinhead.
This is the Pinhead from his "The Hellbound Heart" novella and Harry D'Amour who appeared in several short stories and the movie "Lord Of Illusions".
Fans have been clamoring for more stories about these two characters for many years. This particular meeting actually started out as a short story for Clive's short story collection but soon expanded into a full length epic.
Congratulations to Clive for this wonderful news and to the many fans who wait with baited breath at it's release.
