VJ Books Presents Author Clive Barker!

Author Clive BarkerClive Barker was born on October 5, 1952 in Liverpool, England. He is an author, film director, and visual artist best known for his work in both fantasy and horror fiction.

His earliest works, a collection of short stories entitled Books of Blood, drew praise from some of the masters of the genre. Upon reading his work, Stephen King stated, "I have seen the future of horror ... and it is named Clive Barker." Barker's later works grew in size and scope to encompass epic fantasy and even young adult literature.

A number of Clive Barker's works have been made into films and television shows including Hellraiser (based on his novella The Hellbound Heart), Rawhead Rex, Nightbreed (based on his novella Cabal), and Candyman (based on his short story The Forbidden). His 2009 release The Adventures of Mr. Maimillian Bacchus and His Traveling Circus is composed of four interwoven stories penned by Clive 40 years ago.

Many of Barker's creations continue to influence the world of horror in literature and cinema, spawning countless imitations, spin offs, and sequels.

Barker recently became an American citizen. He currently lives in Beverly Hills, California.
