Thread subject: Fifth Dominion - Clive Barker Fans - :: (2015) Scarlet Gospels

Posted by Roger on October 17 2013 18:37

From "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..! "

Here's the news article I just put up:
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.

It's a very fast-paced exciting book, and that's all I'm going to say.

Thanx Ryan.... but if anyone wants to start a [SPOILERS] thread that's fine with me. Grin

That's too much responsibility.

I read the first 2 chapters so far and am loving it. I can't wait to see where this goes.
I probably won't be posting too much more about it until I finish reading it though. Pfft

Hey everyone. I had a bit of bad luck with electronics as of nearly a year. Old phone, dead tablet, and my computer crapped out. It took a while but I at least got my phone updated so I can finally talk here again.
So to start with Scarlett Gospels was a fun read. So let the spoilers begin.
Lucifer walking the Earth... and a new TV show actually about that very thing starts up in our real life... coincidence?
Pinhead fades into oblivian... no new Hellraiser movies made in quite a while... coincidence?
Harry is blind but can see ghosts. Would love a follow up story involving that as the main storyline.
Hell is no longer what it used to be. Guess it will one day get rebuilt.
Love how that Hell was just like Earth with prejudice, social classes, ghettos and such. Makes you think that the way things are now and how we don't do much to change this world because it is just run by an evil hierarchy that just wants to maintain the status quo.

I have to say I never read a book this fast before. I don't know if it is because I loved it so much or just craved a decent Pinhead story.
I enjoyed very much.

I loved it too. It could have used a little more careful editing, but great book, and Jose and I make a cameo at the end. Smile

For some reason I still haven't gotten through the book yet. Arrrrggggg
Love what I've read but I think my mind is just in another place. Pfft
