Clive Barker By CliveBarker Completed

Who but modern master of outrage Clive Barker could create a poetic homage to the transgressive popular art of past master of scandalous effrontery Edward Gorey, as exemplified in his 1963 "children's alphabet book," The Gashlycrumb Tinies?  Barker continues to carry aloft Gorey's deliciously dark banner of contrarian delights with his own Alphabet, which records the unfortunate happenstances befalling a motley collection of unfortunate souls.
