Abstract:

"Douglas E. Winter's detailed and highly literate biography, made possible by unprecedented access to Barker and his closest friends and family, offers readers a privileged insight into Barker's own story: his Liverpool childhood and adolescence, his forays into the world of theatre, mime and direction; his meteoric rise to fame as the author of the Books of Blood and Weaveworld, and the director of Hellraiser; his move to Hollywood to pursue a film career and his growth as an artist in many different media, which has taken him from theatre - the first form of human expression - into the digital age. Interwoven with this revealing and personal journey into Barker's life is a grand tour through all of his fiction and film, from his earliest unpublished work - including the short story, 'The Wood on the Hill', which was published here for the first time - up to Coldheart Canyon and beyond, giving a tantalising glimpse of things to come." "Clive Barker: The Dark Fantastic unlocks the beating heart of a polymath, a creator, a true artist, and reveals at last a man with one of the twentieth century's most phenomenal imagination, and the vision to lead us on many strange and fabulous journeys in the years ahead."--Jacket.
