The Books of Blood combine the ordinary with the extraordinary while radiating the eroticism that has become Barker's signature. Weaving tales of the everyday world transformed into an unrecognizable place, where reason no longer exists and logic ceases to explain the workings of the universe, Clive Barker provides the stuff of nightmares in packages too tantalizing to resist.
Never one to shy away from the unimaginable or the unspeakable, Clive Barker breathes life into our deepest, darkest nightmares, creating visions that are at once terrifying, tender, and witty.
The Books of Blood confirm what horror fans everywhere have known for a long time: We will be hearing from Clive Barker for many years to come.

I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
The Books Of Blood are a compendium of stories that are macabre and some pretty bloody.They twist and turn and make you think,or sick depending on the story.Each were told by someone new.Jeffery Kafer stands out in this series as an excellent narrator,along with quite a few others.
I was gifted a copy through Audioblast for an honest review.

Very high these books are legendary among horror enthusiast "Clive Barker" wrights in prose the put the rest of the modern horror writers to shame.
The narration of these books is excellent I like that that different stories are read by different voice actors
