I was still fairly young when
Clive Barker started selling lots of books and
getting on bestseller lists.
Probably my first Clive Barker book was Imajica.

The "Hellraiser" films are based on his serial work;
the last Barker title I read, The Scarlet Gospels,
finally confronted Pinhead with Lucifer, and not before time;
you can guess how that confrontation ended.


I looked up Barker's fantasy novels for a few years.
They seemed for a time to be
the same novel written again and again.
Galilee was a little different.

But I fear Clive Barker's fifteen minutes may be over.
