With Clive Barker's trademark mingling of wild fantasy, eroticism, and visionary horror, Everville promises a journey that will awe, arouse, and terrify in equal measure, opening the doors of a new reality--a strange and sensual wonderland of magical possibility.
Enthralling and chilling, this is a novel about the deepest yearnings of the human heart. And about monsters that are never more terrible than when they wear human faces. Step onto Everville's streets and enter a world like no other in fiction. A world only Clive Barker could create.

Clive Barker is the bestselling author of twenty-two books, including the New York Times bestsellers Abarat; Abarat: Days of Magic, Nights of War; and The Thief of Always. He is also an acclaimed painter, film producer, and director. For twelve years Mr. Barker has been working on a vast array of paintings to illuminate the text of The Books of Abarat, more than one hundred and twenty-five of which can be found within this volume.
Mr. Barker lives in California. He shares his house with seven dogs, three cockatiels, several undomesticated geckoes, an African gray parrot called Smokey, and a yellow-headed Amazon parrot called Malingo.From AudioFile:
It may be the abridgment, but this attempt at horror is more fatiguing than frightening. Barker's story goes in various directions with little regard for logic or character motivation. Even experienced narrator John Glover can't do much with Barker's banal dialogue. D.A.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
