Coming Soon: It’s Harry D’Amour vs. Pinhead in Clive Barker’s THE SCARLET GOSPELS

Here’s the cover and synopsis for Clive Barker’s upcoming (May 2015) novel The Scarlet Gospels, which features two popular characters from previous novels.

Here’s the synopsis (larger cover appears below):

Featuring iconic characters, Pinhead and Harry D’Amour, in a good versus evil saga that goes straight to Hell, The Scarlet Gospels is Barker’s first novel for adults since 2007.

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?

    Harry took Pinhead’s place in the Hellraiser comic a few years back when Pinhead turned against hell. I wonder if this is a novelization of that.

  2. Barker has been restless on facebook for a couple of years, announcing this & that, wanting to do sequels & remakes.
    I know he’s ill & hope this isn’t just the medication talking. Keeping my fingers crossed.
    It’s been so long since he’s done anything, I’ve been thinking of reading Imagica again.
