Hellraiser Art by Mafaka aka Paul Nojima
speedfreak745 asked: What's a good Clive Barker book?
I’ve only read three: The Hellbound Heart, Imajica, and Weaveworld. The Hellbound Heart is short and it is mostly scene-for-scene Hellraiser. He didn’t change much for the movie. There are a few differences so read it if you’re nerdy for Hellraiser.
Weaveworld ”revolves around the world of the Fugue, a magical world which lies woven within a rug.” He creates a very cool world and I fell in love with the idea of it right away. Definitely a cool read. If you like fantasy and horror tinges, I’d guess you can enjoy almost any Barker.
Imajica: case-in-point, Imajica also deals with parallel worlds, magic, etc. I remember being a little skeptical about the main character at first (a starving-artist, sex-god that everyone calls “Gentle”) but if you can get past that, then you’ll have a story that’s seriously epic in scope, really weird at times, very intense, and a lot of fun to read.
So I’ve read three and liked three for all of Barker’s weirdness. Let me know what you think if you read any!
