9780060937737: Revelations: A Novel of the Apocalypse

Pestilence, floods, war, social upheaval, drug crime, wicked leaders, conspiracies, corruption even visions of death-dealing aliens -- this superb collection of stories takes an unforgettable imaginative journey into terror and transcendence. Each decade of the twentieth century is assigned to one of the top fantasy/horror authors of the modern age who evokes the particular madness of that decade as it contributes to a prophecy for the next century. Decade by decade as the millennium approaches in these powerful, chilling tales, the tension builds toward a dramatic revelation that is both a prophetic warning and a visionary answer for all humankind.

A singular publishing event, Revelations is a stunning anthology-novel by modern superstars of fantasy and horror, including New York Times -- bestselling author Clive Barker, David J. Schow, and Remsey Campbell.

Review:

Pestilence, floods, war, social upheaval, drug-related crime, wicked leaders, birth defects, conspiracies, corruption, even visions of death-dealing aliens--this superb anthology is a timely reminder that destructive forces and fantasies of destruction are not just a millennial phenomenon; they've been with us all along. Douglas Winter writes in the afterword: "I chose the writers whose words had moved me, surprised me, remained vibrant in a time of repetition and glut. I wanted assurance that the fiction nominally known as 'horror' would survive into the twenty-first century; and I wanted Revelations to offer that reassurance to readers." These 11 long tales--one for each decade, plus a frame story--succeed brilliantly in doing so. The writers are Clive Barker, Joe R. Lansdale, David Morrell, F. Paul Wilson, Poppy Z. Brite, Christa Faust, Charles Grant, Whitley Strieber, Elizabeth Massie, Richard Christian Matheson, David J. Schow, Craig Spector, and Ramsey Campbell.
