     Lily Wight is always available to be the sanguinous stuffing in an Anne Rice and Clive Barker sandwich – so please tuck in 😉

     The Grande Dame of Grand Guignol and The Master of The Macabre (via official administrator, Alex) were kind enough to recommend and share features from the blog at www.lilywight.com with their huge online communities.

     Just click the links below for these unmissable posts ~

“The Wolf Gift” scored this generous review by Lily Wight and I’m grateful.  Also note the cool use of Ran Valerhon’s art in this review.  Love it.

Lily Wight

     Updated 21/08/2014 

     Kim Newman’s Glastonbury set tale of a year 2000 millenium apocalypse may have passed its sell by date (without incident) yet still offers a gorily fun interpretation of The Book of Revelations for horror fans who enjoy the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker, James Herbert and Brian Lumley.

     There is a comfortable soap-opera quality to the slow-burn character-building of colourful locals and visitors but, in the final act, as chaos descends, the diversity of their living nightmares causes a loss of focus.

     Some of the sexual-horror is just plain nasty and there is a missed opportunity to explore the dynamics of cult religions with more intelligent depth.

     As an entry into the sub-genre of supernaturals versus psychic spies it makes a sufficiently fun but hardly a life-changing…

     Cabal is the natural evolutionary step from Clive Barker‘s groundbreaking short story collection, Books Of Blood.

     This slim novel offers post-Cronenbergian body horror, Freudian identity issues, an original mythology for monsters and includes a rampant serial killer: more than enough material for a lifetime’s worth of sequels and spin-offs.

     Cabal’s naturalistic dialogue, deft character strokes and punchy yet eloquent prose render the most extraordinary flights of fantasy entirely plausible so it remains a great pity that – despite an open ending – Barker has never returned to continue the journey of anti-hero, Boone.

     Fans will have to make do with Barker’s own darkly brilliant movie adaptation, Nightbreed; recently re-edited for a must-see Director’s Cut.  Click the link for further information http://www.clivebarker.info/morenightbreed.html
