"Midnight Meat Train" -Clive Barker


A reminder I like to give every once and a while that this was Clive Barker’s actual reaction to Hellraiser: Revelations (2011)



Nightbreed The Cabal Cut

A downward spiral began. He spent three months in a wash of depression and self-pity that bordered on the suicidal. But even that solution was denied him by his newfound nihilism. If nothing was worth living for it followed, didn’t it, that there was nothing worth dying for either.

Hellraiser Zine Call for Submissions ›


Basic title, but I hope it got your attention. This is a call for submissions for something I’ve been planning and secretly wondering if anyone would be excited but me, but now’s the time to find out. There’s a great Hellraiser following here on tumblr and I want to put something together that celebrates that fucked up fandom and all the fucked up, crazy talented people who comprise it. To continue to beat a phrase to death: you have such sights to show me.

And to Think I Hesitated will be an interactive .pdf zine in order to incorporate anything under the sun in terms of what you the people, or Cenobites, or flayed family members have to offer. I’m looking for short stories, flash fiction, comics, poetry, essays, artwork, photography, cosplay, music or video or anything I am blanking on right now. If it’s a celebration of Hellraiser, I want to see it.

A few requests:

  • All content should be original, and any cited or referenced resources should be credited in the work itself or accompanied by a list of cited works
  • Written pieces should be no longer than 5,000 words and submitted as a .pdf, .doc, .rtf or similar plain text format. Pieces should include word count.
  • Artwork and photography (incl. cosplay) should be HQ .jpg or .png files
  • Any original music should be uploaded to a free streaming site and submitted with the lyrics in a plain text file (adhering to guidelines for written work)
  • Videos should be uploaded to youtube, vimeo or similar streaming site and submitted with a high quality screen cap and description. 

Please send all submissions to by August 1st. This is a tentative deadline and if it changes I will update as soon as it does. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask via email, ask box, or tagging #natbrehmer. 

This project means a lot to me and I can’t wait to see it come together. So please, if you have anything you think I might want to see, don’t hesitate to send it my way. If you’re not interested, but you know someone who might be, let them know about it. And please reblog, like, etc. just so more people can be aware that this is happening.


My Books Day 7…Clive Barker, anyone?

A man kills the thing he loves, and he must die a little himself.
