About Author
Clive Barker is a man of astonishing creativity – author, artist and film-maker; he has taken the worlds of the fantastique and horror and made them his own.

Clive studied English and Philosophy at Liverpool University before moving to London. Eight years ago, he was still a struggling artist and playwright, mounting his own fringe plays. But at the same time he was also writing short stories. These were to be collected together and were published in six volumes, THE BOOKS OF BLOOD. The initial publication was low key, but THE BOOKS OF BLOOD nevertheless built up a huge readership through word-of-mouth. Clive Barker was on his way.

Running parallel with his publishing successes is a flourishing career as a film-maker. Barker’s directorial debut, HELLRAISER, touched new heights of horror and earned him world-wide recognition. Clive moved to Los Angeles in 1991 to pursue his two careers more effectively. In true Hollywood style he lives in Beverley Hills in a house with a history that dates back to the early 1920s.
