So I'm resurrecting this page to say that a few weeks ago I finally finished The Books of Blood Vol 1-3, the first of that batch of Clive Barker books that I bought 3 years ago (but started in September last year...), see first post in thread.

Its an anthology of short horror stories that features:

Volume One

1.1 The Book of Blood
1.2 The Midnight Meat Train
1.3 The Yattering and Jack
1.4 Pig Blood Blues
1.5 Sex, Death and Starshine
1.6 In the Hills, the Cities

Volume Two

2.1 Dread
2.2 Hell's Event
2.3 Jacqueline Ess: Her Will And Testament
2.4 The Skins of the Fathers
2.5 New Murders in the Rue Morgue

Volume Three

3.1 Son of Celluloid
3.2 Rawhead Rex
3.3 Confessions of a (Pornographer's) Shroud
3.4 Scape-Goats
3.5 Human Remains

It was for the most part a great and unsettling read, my favourites being In the Hills, the Cities, Son of Celluloid and Hell's Event.

On finishing it was nice to hear a film is being made of Jacqueline Ess starring Lena Headey (300, Dredd)

I now have to wait until we've properly moved house again to read the rest as all of my books are boxed up in my uncle's garage where we are currently staying so when I want to read a book now, I have to buy one...:(

Feel free to add to the survey!
