The Scarlet Gospels
Author: Clive Barker
The New York Times bestseller from Clive Barker, who brings his extraordinary universes of Hellraiser and Lord of Illusions together in a masterpiece of dark fantastic horror.
The Scarlet Gospels takes readers back many years to the early days of two of Barker's most iconic characters in a battle of good and evil as old as time: The long-beleaguered detective Harry D'Amour, investigator of all supernatural, magical, and malevolent crimes faces off against his formidable, and intensely evil rival, Pinhead, the priest of hell.
Barker devotees have been waiting for The Scarlet Gospels with bated breath for years, and it's everything they've begged for and more. Bloody, terrifying, and brilliantly complex, fans and newcomers alike will not be disappointed by the epic, visionary tale that is The Scarlet Gospels. Barker's horror will make your worst nightmares seem like bedtime stories. The Gospels are coming. Are you ready?
Readers can get more Pinhead from the direct to video Hellraiser: Judgment movie coming February 2018.

“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
