For more than two decades, Clive Barker has twisted the worlds of horrific and surrealistic fiction into a terrifying, transcendent genre all his own. With skillful prose, he enthralls even as he horrifies; with uncanny insight, he disturbs as profoundly as he reveals. Evoking revulsion and admiration, anticipation and dread, Barker's works explore the darkest contradictions of the human condition: our fear of life and our dreams of death.… (mere)

    In Silent Graves af Gary A. Braunbeck (jseger9000)
    jseger9000: In Silent Graves and Cabal have many plot points in common, though the stories are executed in very different ways.

    Hanike: You simply can't read Clive Barker without going through his Books of Blood: they are the synthesis of this world covered on blood, tragedy & darkness he showed us!

As a Canadian who's lived in every southern province from BC to Ontario, it's certainly fun actually knowing the details about the places an author is describing for once. Is this what you US East/West Coast people feel like every time you read a popular story? Beyond the location names the book doesn't feel terribly Canadian though.

Overall I didn't love or hate the book and feel very neutrally about it. It was really short, so I was never bored of it, but it just didn't grip me the same way as the growing, unreasonable horror of Barker's "In the Hills, the Cities". This book feels like an atypical urban fantasy thriller rather than horror-fantasy.

My biggest gripe is that the underworld aspect of Midian was basically a side-element. The hellish catacombs and fantastical, grotesque denizens of Midian were the most interesting parts of the story but I feel like there was a missed opportunity to dwell there, given how short the story was.

Also, I feel that Lori was actually the main character. A large slice of the novel is from her viewpoint, and most of the story seems to be about her coming to terms with the monstrous world she's been pulled into and the love she has for it deep inside. Boone's parts were more about not wanting to let Lori down the way he thought he always had in the past, as well as his revenge on the psycho psychiatrist.

A decent tale, but this was not up to the usual standard that I expected from Clive Barker. The lead story feels rushed and I feel that it could have been expanded upon and taken more slowly to allow it to resonate with the reader. This detracted from the overall impression and momentum, scope, and effect that the story had. The short stories were passable, but barely.

Not what expected, but still worth reading: 3 stars. ( )

Llevaba años con este libro pendiente -tras haber visto su versión cinematográfica en los 90-, y al fin lo leí.

¿Impresiones? Que siendo una buena obra del fantástico, con diferentes momentos de interés y tensión, no acaba de ser todo lo redonda que podría haber sido. Me faltó que consiguiese cautivarme y hacerme creer lo que me contaba.

¿La recomiendo? Sí, creo que merece el tiempo de lectura que le inviertas, pero más como entretenimiento oscuro que como libro que haya que leer sí o sí (eso lo dejaremos para los Libros de Sangre de Mr. Baker).

Mi reseña completa aquí. ( )

Muy buena historia... y una fatalmente mala traducción a cargo de Plaza ( )

The U.K./Canadian editions of Cabal: The Nightbreed published by Fontana, Collins or Harper/Collins contain only the novella and do not include the additional 4 stories & epilogue of the original U.K. "Books of Blood VI" which were added to the U.S. editions of Cabal published by Poseidon, Doubleday or Pocket Books. The U.K./Canadian and U.S. editions of "Cabal" should not be combined due to this different content.

This is the novella.
