Praise for The Scarlet Gospels

“I think Clive Barker is so good that I am literally tongue-tied. He makes the rest of us look like we've been asleep for the past ten years.” —Stephen King

“A powerful and fascinating writer with a brilliant imagination… an outstanding storyteller” —JG Ballard

“To call Clive Barker a 'horror novelist' would be like calling the Beatles a 'garage band'… He is the great imaginer of our time. He knows not only our greatest fears, but also what delights us, what turns us on, and what is truly holy in the world. Haunting, bizarre, beautiful.” —Quentin Tarantino
