Clive Barker Making Final Convention Appearances to Focus Entirely on Writing; Here’s What’s Coming [Exclusive]

Horror legend Clive Barker brings Bloody Disgusting some good news and some bad news this morning. The bad news? His days of appearing at horror conventions are coming to an end. The good news? He’s diving headfirst into MORE WRITING in the coming months and years!

Here’s the official statement from Clive Barker himself…


Clive Barker days of the dead

My dear friends,

For the last almost forty years, I’ve been visiting conventions in cities in Europe and America to talk with my supporters, signing books, movie posters, Pinhead (A.K.A. The Hell Priest) models, and countless precious keepsakes which you’ve brought for me to sign. The most precious? The arms, legs, and other body parts, that brave souls have asked me to sign to later be tattooed over. What an honour!

However, it’s time to focus entirely on writing. I’m not stopping public events because I’ve lost delight in meeting you all over the years. I’m as passionate as ever about sharing my imagination with readers and moviegoers around the world. In the very room where I’m writing these words, I have the manuscripts for a very large number of projects (Thirty-one of them), some very close to completion, others still telling themselves. There are some wild projects in this collection of works, whether close to finished or done. There are also stories that you all knew I would be finishing. Abarat IV and V are amongst the books at my feet. So is the Third and final book of The Art and the sequel to The Thief of Always. There are also return visits to characters and mythologies you may have thought I would never return to. I hope I am still able to surprise you in the decades ahead.

And if you don’t see me at conventions, you’ll keep seeing new Clive Barker books being published, as well as some movie and television adaptations.

I feel strangely emotional writing these words, but I’ve got an enormous amount of work to do. So, if you’ve noticed I’m less public than I’ve been over the last forty years, please know I’ll be there in every new book I publish, painting I exhibit, or film I produce.

My love to you. I hope to see you over the next year.

Clive.

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.
