    Staff Reviews

    Man, is this book gross, and that is what I love about it! The Master of Horror is back to form with the cenobites (née Pinhead to humans not in the know), Harry D'Amour, and gore galore. In fact, not only is it gross, but The Scarlet Gospels include the most engrossing depictions of evisceration I've had the pleasure of reading in years. Barker has grown as a writer, bringing the fantasy virtuosity (Abarat Series and The Thief of Always) and infusing it with the exquisite body of terror from his earlier works. The apocalypse is near, and he's happy to take us to hell. If we're lucky enough, he might deign to bring us back. (Ashanti)

    — From Ashanti


    The New York Times bestseller from Clive Barker, who brings his extraordinary universes of Hellraiser and Lord of Illusions together in a masterpiece of dark fantastic horror.

    The Scarlet Gospels takes readers back many years to the early days of two of Barker's most iconic characters in a battle of good and evil as old as time: The long-beleaguered detective Harry D'Amour, investigator of all supernatural, magical, and malevolent crimes faces off against his formidable, and intensely evil rival, Pinhead, the priest of hell.

    Barker devotees have been waiting for The Scarlet Gospels with bated breath for years, and it's everything they've begged for and more. Bloody, terrifying, and brilliantly complex, fans and newcomers alike will not be disappointed by the epic, visionary tale that is The Scarlet Gospels. Barker's horror will make your worst nightmares seem like bedtime stories. The Gospels are coming. Are you ready?

    Readers can get more Pinhead from the direct to video Hellraiser: Judgment movie coming February 2018.
