Clive Barker Talking

This is the best video interview with Clive Barker I could find online. I deeply admire the range and fearlessness of Barker's body of work. No two books of his are alike--and books are just the tip of the iceberg of his creative range.

You can get a great sense of his body of work at The Official Clive Barker Resource.

My own favorite Barker novel is Imajica. Reading this one is where I really got that Barker is all about embracing transformation. I should add that his Books of Blood blew me away when they first arrived in the US (hideously garish paperbacks): each story took off in unexpected, delightful and disturbing, directions.
