PDF/EBOOK Books of Blood Volume One

Alchemy Ever After dSee I have always been one of those guys who likes terror fiction better than horror fiction I much prefer the ghosts of MR James the mad gods of HP Lovecraft and the metaphysical abysses of Thomas Ligotti to the visceral chronicles of rape and torture those precise less atmospheric accounts of the rending of bone and fleshI stillo Clive Barker has not changed my preferences But I think I now understand him and his fellow writers of horror better than I have ever understood them beforeFor the horror writer and the horror reader spiritual psychological and metaphysical terror are nothing but mere "evasions wishful projections In the last extremity all we human beings can relate "wishful projections In the last extremity all we human beings can relate and through is our body with its pleasures and pains Our My Academia deepest fear no matter in what rarified or abstract veils we cloak it is the final extinction of the corporeal self we watch aseliberately methodically each carnal pleasure is transformed first into gross animal pain then into nothingness It is our body and its loss not spooks or madness that we fear the mostBarker keeps his six tales rooted in the privilege pleasures and pains of the body This is true even of his two humorous pieces The corporeal Jack in The Yattering and Jack exploits his ability to pass through certain boundaries that an unembodied minor The Alchemy of Color Knitting: The Art and Technique of Mastering Exquisite Palettes demon like The Yatteringoes not share and the most horrific revelation of Sex Death and Starshine is rooted in how oral sex technues iffer between the living and the undead The connections of the other four serious tales with the body is even explicit Books of Blood makes the body itself a text of horror The Midnight Meat Train my favorite begins with a serial killer and ends with something much basic namely inner horror The Midnight Meat Train my favorite begins with a serial killer and ends with something much basic namely inner Blood #Blues Is All About The #is all about the of bodies whether it be the elicate beauty of an adolescent boy or the enormity of a commanding old sow and that fantastic tale In the Hills the Cities is a fulfillment of this theme in which the individual bodies of citizens comprise the giant bodies of their cities cities which with their heads literally in the clouds march forth into the hills to o battle for the honor of the wholeLike I said I m still a terror not a horror guy and Clive Barker although not in this volume can occasionally be too explicit for my taste But in everything he oes I can t The Gnostic Religion deny that he celebrates the totality of the human body including its most excruciating failures andefeats Horrorgoretwisted nightmare imagerylet s get under the covers and read something scary There are some truly blood chilling moments in this excellent collection Barker has a very uniue voice and I thought all of these stories were at least good with several being remarkable 5 star worthy gems Deeply evocative with shocking Computational Molecular Biology: An Algorithmic Approach (Computational Molecular Biology) depictions that will glue themselves to your memory This is a worthy collection for fans of the genre or anyone who enjoys uality creative writing and isn t overly sueamish Here are the storiesTHE BOOK OF BLOOD While a short story in and of itself this really acts as the introduction to the series and ties the other stories together in a clever way A good solid story but worth reading for its tie in effect to the rest of the series plus it is very short 30 to 35 starsTHE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN An excellent story that on the surface is suspenseful and well written though a fairly standard horror story However below the surface is a superb and nuanced tale about the numbing horrors and oppresive pain experienced by normal people each and everyay Barker really layered this tale well and I thought it was excellent 40 to 45 stars THE YATTERING AND JACK A comical story from Barker about a Mocktails demon sent by Satan torive a man insane Worth reading but not one of my favorites 30 starsPIG BLOOD BLUES My FAVORITE story in the collection A brilliant brutal narrative about the kill or be killed nature of life The imagery the prose and the visceral creeping horror are very unsettling I will be thinking about the end of this one for a LONG LONG time A DEFINITE MUST READ 55 stars SEX DEATH AND STARSHINEGood solid story but not one of my favorites Probably suffered by comparison to the previous story and the one that follows 30 stars IN THE HILLS THE CITIES This was an amazingly imaginative story that left me WOWing and WTFing when the story evice was finally revealed Original and stunning and clear evidence of Barker s high level of creativity I Don t want to give anything away but this is simply brilliant and the imagery from this story will stick to your eyes long after you finish it 50 to 55 stars Overall 40 to 45 stars and efinitely the collection to try if you are looking to experience Barker s short fiction HIGHLY RECOMMENDE. ä

with nothing but ropes straps and their willing bodies Written with a sly sense of humor Barker s African Literature: Overview and Bibliography deranged taleselight now the same as they must have on first publication when they gobsmacked readers like Stephen King and Ramsey Campbell I originally read this book when it was a brand new release and I was fourteen I remember buying it with my allowance at the local Aliens Rogue Aliens drugstore I m betting most of it went over my head at the time but I have fond memories of scaring people away from speaking to me when reading this I m curious how I ll feel about it now that I m no longer a tormented teen looking to hide from realityThe Book of BloodAfter recently seeing the movie adaptation of this short story which wasreary sexualized and not too bad even with some cliches thrown in I was impelled to revisit this novel to see how the film matched up Much was changed of course This Book of Blood is actually the introduction to all of the stories that follow it The movie stands alone and is uite a bit Eşti cool şi dacă vorbeşti corect differentTheead have highways and at one of these intersections sits the house at 65 Tollington Place It looks like any other home but stay there too long and you re sure to leave much Fall for You different than when 35 Books of Blood Volume 1 is an entertaining six story anthology As usual Iidn t love every story The last two Money Blues to Blue Money didn to much for me The Book of BloodThe Facial Action Coding SystemInvestigator's Guide Part 16701 dead have highways and a team of three people is at Tollington Place 65 to witness one of those turnpikes and intersections The Midnight Train Kaufman s love for New York is not as strong as when he came to live there Someone is butchering people in the subway and he is going to get in the middle of it and learn some of the city s history and itsark secrets along the way The Yattering JackMy favourite story Hilarious Yattering Jack is a lower level Alchemy for Women demon with a seemingly easy task torive one man crazy However whatever he tries seemed to make no Alchemy Martial Supreme dent in his perfect indifference Pig Blood BluesI hate pigs so that only added to the horror Veryisturbing story of a former police officer who got a job at a Centre for Adolescent Offenders only to realize that something is not uite right with the place Sex Death and ShineA story of one last production of Shakespeare s Twelfth Night People are too busy being horrible petty and mean to notice anything weird around them In the Hills the CitiesA couple is on a trip in the Balkan hills They are just realizing how incompatible they are and how little they have in common only to stumble upon a weirdest battle anyone has ever seen The Book of BloodThe Midnight Meat TrainThe Yattering and JackPig Blood BluesSex Death and Star ShineIn the Hills the CitiesThis is my favorite story from this volume I found this image on Nicholas Flamels First Codex deviant art an awesomeepiction of the giant made of people Honestly This short story collection is flawlessEvery single story in this was without fault All of them were haunting and really really well written and get a full 5 stars each from me The weakest one was in my opinion Sex Death and Starshine but that just means that it was slightly worse than the others not that it was leagues beneath My favourite was possibly The Yattering and Jack because it was clever as hell but honestly it s really hard to chooseI ve already started the next volume I listened to the audio version of Books of Blood volume 1 and while not being blown away by the majority of the narration I thought four of the stories exceptional and the remaining two just Alien didn I am not a fan of Clive Barker the Novelist I ll read his novels from time to time but I try to stay away from his fan s favorites His books are some of the most overwritten literature I ve stumbled upon But the readers who enjoy him seem to like that aspect of his work He reminds me of a presentay Lovecraft without all the fish people suid faced gods and bigotry Meaning I like the idea of Barke.

R s work than the #execution That being said I am a fan of Clive Barker the Short Story Author #That being said I am a fan of Clive Barker the Short Story Author oes big ideas and subtle horrors in small packages very well This collection is a perfect example of that Is it any wonder that the movies of his that have worked have been based on his short fiction and novellas instead of his novels Probably not Side note I want a The Thief of Always movie please and thank you The Books of Blood is a rad way to start this collection The idea that these stories were originally written on someone s flesh is an awesome concept One of those once in a lifetime ideas I African American Literature in Transition, 1830-1850 dig it I only give it four stars instead of five because itoesn t work as a story Nice idea but it s a creative introduction than it is a story Four starsThe Midnight Meat Train Is Terrific Even The Film Is Great Train is terrific Even the film is great One the in my opinion adaptations of Barker s work that I ve seen Stylistic and horrifying But what I like the most about this story is how it ends Barker always goes the road less traveled and instead of writing your average serial killer fair he gives us a fictional origin story for New York Five starsThe Yattering and Jack is one of the stories I remember the most in this collection I read this one almost twenty years ago and the events of this tale are still clear in my mind I almost À quoi rêvent les algorithmes didn t listen to it because they happenings remain so fresh like wriggling fishies swimming around in my brain bucket I m glad I reread though because I think I liked it even the second time around One of my all time favorite short stories Five starsPig Blood Blues is a story whose title I cannot say without stammering Ion t know what it is about that three word title but it twists my tongue into knots Anyway I like this story because I like stories about creepy kids The narration made Lacey all the creepy Funnily enough the pig never bothered me Four starsSex Death and Starshine is my least favorite story in the collection It s good but that opening is everything I hate about Barker s long fiction He BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 40 (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 40: Billionaires Secret Baby (Interracial African American Romance Urban Baby Romance Short Stories) drones on and on about shit thatoesn t matter before getting to the actual plot The next story suffered the same problems but the payoff is much better Three starsIn the Hills the Cities is simply fucking cool Weird and radical I will say nothing of this story other than I loved it Also I Spare the Child: The Religious Roots of Punishment and the Psychological Impact of Physical Abuse don t think I read this one in when I originally went through this collection I can t imagine why I skipped it I m usually obsessive when it comes to reading every story in a collection in first to last order Anyfuck Iug the hell out of this story My second favorite after The Yattering and Jack Five starsIn summation If you haven t read Barker this is a good place to start The guy s novels aren t for me but he can write the fuck out of a short story Definitely recommended Final Judgment Beautiful horrorsSpoiler Discussion In which I spoil some scenes from the story in this book If you Managing Activism A Guide to Dealing with Activists and Pressure Groups d like toiscuss spoilers in the comments please use spoiler tags Tackview spoilerThe final blow job scene in Sex Death and Starshine is foul I think the reason it bothers me as much as it Faith Into Action: Thoughts on Selected Topics does is because Barker beats how cold she is into your head I can t imagine maintaining an erection inside anything cold The Fathers in The Midnight Meat Train creep me out Love the end of that story Theescriptions of them made their forms crystal clear in my mind I also Alien Generals Chosen Brion Brides dug the brutality of the story the bodiesangling from the roof of the train car is just awesomeI have no idea why I enjoy The Yattering and Jack as much as I Academic Motherhood: How Faculty Manage Work and Family do That story speaks to me in odd ways I think because I was a very imaginative kid I guess I still am that imaginary kid it s that imagination that pays my bills most peopleidn t trust the things I said I lied all the time especially when things broke in the house and it was obviously my fault I used to blame ghosts and neighbor kids and even my German Shepard Spot It wasn t until my mother bought me a typewriter that I stopped lying and started writing all my stories Alcohol Fuel: A Guide to Making and Using Ethanol as a Renewable Fuel down Thanks for joining me See you later hide spoiler Terror fiction at its macabric high And I say this even after skipping one short story Pig Blood Blues in this collection I mean I can handle a lot of weirdness but a story with human eating pigs shudders Overall a good volume consisting of terrifying pieces of morbideliciousness This may be the best book of horror stories ever written When I read it thirty years ago it convinced me that I could actually like a good horror story When I read it again ten years ago it was as fresh and scary as the first time And last week when I read it yet again I took my time and I finally let this superb book teach me what first class horror is all about You.
