Infernal ParadeInfernal Parade by Clive Barker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A novella of sorts comprised of tales of the lives of some terrible people who are chosen for the Infernal Parade. The stories themselves are short, gruesome, and memorable, but I often wanted more and the overarching story feels very incomplete. Still, Barker at his most creepy and intense.

[I received an e-galley of this through Netgalley. The book is due to be published March 1, 2017.]



Tortured Souls: The Legend of PrimordiumTortured Souls: The Legend of Primordium by Clive Barker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A short novella describing the legend of Primordium, the first city, and the political, violent events that happened there. There are trademark Barker moments here, the weaving of the Judeo-Christian mythos with the fantastic and horrible, the mix of erotic and murderous, and while there is a bit of choppiness (it was originally cast as short stories) and the ending is not completely satisfying, it is still a fun, fast adventure.
