About the Author
Clive Barker Clive Barker was born in Liverpool in 1952. He took the publishing world by storm with his six-volume collection of short stories, published in England as the Books of Blood; the last three volumes were published in the united States as The Inhuman Condition, In the Flesh, and Cabal, which also includes the title novella. "Cabal" was adapted as the film Nightbreed, and the novella "The Hellbound Heart" inspired the series of Hellraiser films. Mr. Barker's short story "The Forbidden" was adapted for the screen as Candyman, and the children's fable "The Thief of Always" is being made into an animated feature. His novels include the highly acclaimed Weaveworld, The Great and Secret Show, Imajica, and Everville. In addition to his award-winning work as a short story writer and novelist, Mr. Barker writes, produces, and directs for the stage and screen. His illustrations can be seen in the books Clive Barker Illustrator and The Art of Clive Barker. Mr. Barker lives in Los Angeles.

I love Clive BarkerReviewed in the United States on 31 August 2016
I love Clive Barker ! I've been a horror fiction fan since my older sister terrified me with the old Frankinstien movie at age five. When I saw the movie Lord of Illusions(the directors cut of course is the only one to watch) I was blown away and started reading anything written by Barker I could get my hands on. Cabal continues my infatuation with this genre and this author. Barker is a true master of the English language mesmerizing and tantalizing the reader as no other can. My only criticism, if one can call it so, is the Master always leaves you wanting more. I am still searching for the sequel to Cabal but in the mean time I will have to be satisfied with the short stories contained in this volume which are concise but enthralling. Five stars without a doubt!
This book reads like a movie treatmentReviewed in the United States on 5 January 2015
This book reads like a movie treatment. I'm an fan of Mr. Barker's films and am one who believes that the book is always better than the film, but in this case I can not say it as such. Night Breed and Lord of Illusions are by far the more though out and well worked versions of these books in film adaptation Barker shines.
Great bookReviewed in the United States on 4 August 2020
This is a great read. My copy came in falling apart that’s the only complaint I have other than that I love it!
water-damaged bookReviewed in the United States on 14 April 2020
it won't even lay flat because the spine is twisted and the pages are stained and wavy.

I have always been a big fan of C.B.'s every book is very descriptive. This book was of course terrific.
