Clive Barker was born in Liverpool, England, the son of Joan Rubie n e Revill , a painter and school welfare officer, and Leonard Barker, a personnel director for an industrial relations firm Educated at Dovedale Primary School and Quarry Bank High School, he studied English and Philosophy at Liverpool University and his picture now hangs in the entrance hallway to the Philosophy Department It was in Liverpool in 1975 that he met his first partner, John Gregson, with whom he lived until 1986 Barker s second long term relationship, with photographer David Armstrong, ended in 2009.In 2003, Clive Barker received The Davidson Valentini Award at the 15th GLAAD Media Awards This award is presented to an openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individual who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for any of those communities While Barker is critical of organized religion, he has stated that he is a believer in both God and the afterlife, and that the Bible influences his work.Fans have noticed of late that Barker s voice has become gravelly and coarse He says in a December 2008 online interview that this is due to polyps in his throat which were so severe that a doctor told him he was taking in ten percent of the air he was supposed to have been getting He has had two surgeries to remove them and believes his resultant voice is an improvement over how it was prior to the surgeries He said he did not have cancer and has given up cigars On August 27, 2010, Barker underwent surgery yet again to remove new polyp growths from his throat In early February 2012 Barker fell into a coma after a dentist visit led to blood poisoning Barker remained in a coma for eleven days but eventually came out of it Fans were notified on his Twitter page about some of the experience and that Barker was recovering after the ordeal, but left with many strange visions.Barker is one of the leading authors of contemporary horror fantasy, writing in the horror genre early in his career, mostly in the form of short stories collected in Books of Blood 1 6 , and the Faustian novel The Damnation Game 1985 Later he moved towards modern day fantasy and urban fantasy with horror elements in Weaveworld 1987 , The Great and Secret Show 1989 , the world spanning Imajica 1991 and Sacrament 1996 , bringing in the deeper, richer concepts of reality, the nature of the mind and dreams, and the power of words and memories.Barker has a keen interest in movie production, although his films have received mixed receptions He wrote the screenplays for Underworld aka Transmutations 1985 and Rawhead Rex 1986 , both directed by George Pavlou Displeased by how his material was handled, he moved to directing with Hellraiser 1987 , based on his novella The Hellbound Heart His early movies, the shorts The Forbidden and Salome, are experimental art movies with surrealist elements, which have been re released together to moderate critical acclaim After his film Nightbreed Cabal , which was widely considered to be a flop, Barker returned to write and direct Lord of Illusions Barker was an executive producer of the film Gods and Monsters, which received major critical acclaim.Barker is a prolific visual artist working in a variety of media, often illustrating his own books His paintings have been seen first on the covers of his official fan club magazine, Dread, published by Fantaco in the early Nineties, as well on the covers of the collections of his plays, Incarnations 1995 and Forms of Heaven 1996 , as well as on the second printing of the original UK publications of his Books of Blood series.A longtime comics fan, Barker achieved his dream of publishing his own superhero books when Marvel Comics launched the Razorline imprint in 1993 Based on detailed premises, titles and lead characters he created specifically for this, the four interrelated titles set outside the Marvel universe were Ectokid,

    The great grey beast February had eaten Harvey Swick alive Harvey Swick is a 10 year old boy who is bored with his life he s tired of school, homework and the winter months That is, until a creature tells him all about a place called the Holiday House, where you can have anything you wish for and it is Christmas every evening.It s not very often that I read a book that completely changes my outlook on life It happens once in a blue moon, but when I do find these books they are extra specia The great grey beast February had eaten Harvey Swick alive Harvey Swick is a 10 year old boy who is bored with his life he s tired of school, homework and the winter months That is, until a creature tells him all about a place called the Holiday House, where you can have anything you wish for and it is Christmas every evening.It s not very often that I read a book that completely changes my outlook on life It happens once in a blue moon, but when I do find these books they are extra special Recently I ve found myself to be one of those people who are always waiting for and looking towards something in the future, whether that is the weekend or the Easter holidays or my next vacation away somewhere exotic I m waiting for better days and better times However, once I closed this book I was left with an overwhelming realisation that THESE are those days Life is now, time is finite Something exciting and enjoyable can be found in each day, even if it s something small It can be that the barista made your latte JUST the way you like it, or it could be getting to spend quality time with your parents, or even be something as minuscule as getting bookmail who am I kidding, getting bookmail is THE BEST These are the books that burrow into your heart and leave their mark on you The books that you lend or recommend to a friend, feeling as if you re sharing some innermost part of yourself.Now that I ve got the sentimental part out of the way THE FANGIRLING CAN COMMENCE I can wholeheartedly say that I have loved everything Barker that I have devoured so far He is right up there in my top 3 authors now His writing, his world building, his imagination it all blows me away I m a huge fan of his horror I love the fucked up shit he thinks up, I love the gore, the way he manages to make it terrifying and fucking weird, yet beautiful And then he comes along and knocks me out with this stunningly beautiful, touching CHILDREN S book I had a number of messages from people on instagram not knowing that Barker wrote anything beyond horror Well, he does, and if you are put off by his horror, he has other sights to show you smug face Like this book THIS ONE Get it The illustrations are gorgeous and they are, of course, done by Barker himself, enhancing the entire reading experience It s such a magical, wonderful story and I want everyone to experience it but don t tell me if you hate it, cos I don t think my heart could take it Upon starting the book there were so many comments from people who said this book changed their life or that it was the gateway book into the wonderful world of reading I GOT YOU, GUYS I get it I wish I had experienced this book when I was young, but I am equally happy to find it in adulthood where I could maybe appreciate the different themes a bitHowever I look forward to reading this to my kids someday or any kids hell, maybe I ll just start reading it to random kids on the street.It s so amazing to me that children s books are often the ones that teach you the most valuable lessons My other favourite childhood book is The Hobbit, which taught me to not be afraid to step outside your front door and go on an adventure it really could be the making of you So I implore anyone and everyone to pick up this book There s so much to found within this story and the last paragraph alone had me in tears AMAZING 5 stars from me Reread February 2020 A hundred billion stars Still an all time favourite

He spends a considerable amount of time at the house being perfectly content there s a painful lack of conflict What spuzzling, however, is how Barker never seems to settle on what the house is, precisely view spoilerCome with me to the Holiday House14You re real, he said, as he stood panting on the porch You are, aren t you He started to laugh at the foolishness of talking to a House, but the smile went from his face as a voice, so soft he was barely certain he heard it, saidWhat do you think, child 50It s the House of Always62 If he d remained in the House of Illusions . 144 It was hard work hauling himself up, but he knew, when he d finished and lay panting on the attic floor, that his pursuit of Hood was almost at an end The Vampire King was near. 199 He stumbled, fell, and ended up sprawled on the hard boards, staring up at the roof through a red haze of pain. And there above him was Hood, in all his glory His face was spread over the entire roof his features horribly distorted His eyes were dark pits gouged into the timbers his nose was flared and flattened grotesquely, like the nose of an enormous bat his mouth was a lipless slit that was surely ten feet wide, from which issued a voice that was like the creaking of doors and the howling of chimneys and the rattling of windows. 201 201 Is it Holiday House The House of Always The House of Illusions Is Hood a man A house A vampire A Vampire King Barker bounces around so many different names and iterations of his Hood House character that it never materializes as a fully realized idea hide spoiler Further, the plot jumps around with characters starting one task and being completely derailed for trivial reasons For example, Harvey and his friends set out on Halloween night to go trick or treating, but are postponed by an incident where view spoiler Harvey is pranked by a friend and subsequently scared hide spoiler This is all it takes to make Harvey cancel his plans for the night No ten year old would let something like that stop him from trick or treating The Thief of Always suffers from an inability to determine what story it wants to tell and what form its characters take

    Always a no spoiler no plot detail reviewI wish I would have read this book when I was like 12 or 13, what a very powerful book this would have been to me But, sadly I only just read it now at age 41 but since I m still a huge lover of children s fiction especially dark children s fiction I still found this story to be every bit as magical and scary as it intended to be.This is my first Clive Barker book that I ve finished I started previous works Mister B Gone and The Great and Secret Always a no spoiler no plot detail reviewI wish I would have read this book when I was like 12 or 13, what a very powerful book this would have been to me But, sadly I only just read it now at age 41 but since I m still a huge lover of children s fiction especially dark children s fiction I still found this story to be every bit as magical and scary as it intended to be.This is my first Clive Barker book that I ve finished I started previous works Mister B Gone and The Great and Secret Show but didn t finish either of them not for me.But wow, I love this book Clive Barker wrote this in such a way that the naivete of the young characters is your top layer of narration but as you read it, this subtle feeling of insidiousness grows and festers like a clogged pore I recommend it to anyone Anyone who loves magic, creepy illustrations and dark creatures Good vs evil and friendship and a morally sound protagonist fighting his inner compass to do the right thing Who wouldn t love THAT Read this at Halloween, Christmas or when it s a dark and stormy night You ll mark it as an instant classic too And if you have read it, I m joining you now at the Holiday House

    Great book to read on a rainy day What I liked the most apart from story are the illustrations They were really creepy, and reminded me of Neil Gaiman s Coraline, which is one of my favorite books The story is also similar to Coraline, but it does have its twists Really fun and fast read, and looking forward to readingbooks from this author The guy knows how to tell a good story.
