Clive Barker Updates on What’s Next During Reddit AMA; “Ectokid” Television Series?!

There’s quite a lot happening in the world of Clive Barker at the moment, with Hulu’s film Books of Blood dropping last week, Nia DaCosta’s sequel to Candyman arriving next year, and multiple other projects in the works including a new Hellraiser movie, a Hellraiser television series for HBO, and a Nightbreed TV series being directed by Michael Dougherty.

And Barker himself recently teased a handful of upcoming projects, including a new novel titled Deep Hill, a novella titled Mercy and the Jackal, and new collections of both short stories and poems. Speaking with fans during an Ask-Me-Anything session over on Reddit last night, Barker spoke a bit about these and other projects that are currently in the works.

For starters, Barker says Deep Hill will be “delivered to my publisher in the next few months,” along with a new collection of short fiction that’s going to be titled Fear Eternal. As for Barker’s book of poetry, that one is titled The Presence of This Breath, and he notes that it’ll include “280 poems” that “range in tone and style, and length across the board.”

Barker adds, “A few of them you may recognize from the Abarat books, but the bulk of the poems will be new to most readers. In subject matter, let me say this: they visit many of the subjects that I deal with in my novels and short fiction but often take paths that only a poem can take. It’s very hard to say anything more specific than that.”

Speaking of The Books of Abarat, Barker teases that there are “two more volumes still to come,” with book four being finished right now. Barker will begin writing Quintet, the fifth and final book in the Abarat series that began back in 2002, once he’s finished with the fourth book.

And that’s certainly not all. One of Barker’s most interesting answers during the AMA indicated that producers are looking into adapting several of his existing stories. Barker noted, “In the last month or so, several projects that I’ve always wanted to see as films or television series have been pursued by producers and will be turned into events for television or cinema in the next few years. They include: ImajicaWeaveworldNightbreed, more tales from the Books of Blood, and also a television series based upon the comic called Ectokid.”

“There are others in the works, but all of those are moving along nicely,” he adds.

Ectokid is Clive Barker’s very own superhero, introduced in an early 90s comic series from Marvel’s Razorline imprint. Co-written by the Wachowski sisters, the Ectokid series ran from 1993 to 1994, centered on teenager Dexter Mungo, “the child of a mortal and a ghost, who is able to see and interact with the dangerous, interdimensional Ectosphere.” (via Wiki)

We’ll update you on these and other projects as we learn more. Needless to say, it looks like the Clive Barker Renaissance is officially underway, and we couldn’t be happier about that!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
