Perhaps the powerful feelings that had touched her in the last few hours – seeing the blood, seeing the tombs – would make their mark in time. She hoped so. The memory of them moved in her still, and she was richer for them, however painful they’d been. Maybe even stay over a few weeks if things go well. ‘They will,’ Lori replied. Dabbing the blood away she attacked the branch with fresh vigour, at last coming within reach of the animal. It was almost beyond responding to her touch, its eyes momentarily fl. uttering open as she stroked its flank, then closing again.

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 For more than two decades, Clive Barker has twisted the worlds of horrific and surrealistic fiction into a terrifying, transcendent genre all his own.

She had seconds only before the knife found her, but it was long enough to see the Mask as she’d never seen it before. Here was the blankness on the faces she’d studied perfectly perfected; the human fiend made myth. No use to call it Decker. Too late,’ he said again, the pain of this parting bringing tears to his eyes. From the precarious safety of the slope Lori saw the Mask turn from her, diverted from its purpose. She had managed to arrest her fall by catching hold of a crack in the wall with her good hand, which did its duty long enough for her to glimpse Boone in the passageway above.

At last, the night has a hero. That was the subtitle given to the short novel, Cabal, by horror fantasist Clive Barker when it was first published in 1988 and I have to admit, it’s pretty catchy. Rather cool, too, in some indefinable way. But then again, the whole book is like that. Two years later the story was adapted into the film, Nightbreed, written and directed by Clive himself.

At first I thought they were dream crimes. He tasted his breakfast in the back of his throat, or the meal the night before, rising from his bowels against nature. Shit in his mouth, like the dirt of this deed. You always had a violent streak in you. And now? Now I’m afraid you may have actually committed them. There was a long silence, while Boone studied Decker, more in puzzlement than anger. The blinds had not been pulled all the way down. A slice of sunlight fell across him, and on to the table between them. On the glass surface was a bottle, of still water, two tumblers, and a large envelope.

Count the wounds, he told himself; pretend they’re beads on an abacus. But none had escaped, however brave their resistance. They’d all fallen at last, tangled in their underwear, or seeking refuge behind a curtain. Fallen sobbing; fallen retching. There were eleven photographs in all.

Crossroad Press, 20 авг. 2017 г. 4 Отзывы. Cabal is the story of Boone, a tortured soul haunted by the conviction that he has committed atrocious crimes. In a necropolis in the wilds of Canada, he seeks refuge and finds the last great creatures of the world - the shape-shifters known as the Nightbreed. They are possessed of unearthly powers-and so is Boone. In the hunt for Boone, they too will be hunted. This book consists of the novella 'Cabal,' the story which the movie 'Nightbreed' was based on, and four short stories: The Life Of Death, How Spoilers Bleed, Twilight At The Towers & The Last.

What do you get for the price of a candy bar?

1. A novella that lives up to the term with the healthy length of a slim paperback. You're not getting a short story here, but a complete tale with enough page length to achieve multiple character development.
2. A story that inspired a cult film that is still making the convention circuit decades later, toys, merchandise, and multiple spin offs, including a brand new Nightbreed title from BOOM studios.
3. An award winning triple threat author, director, and acclaimed painter who has given us both Pinhead and Candyman, writing at a time many considered him in peak form.

So, for the price of a candy bar, Baphomet willing, you will experience the wonder of Midian.

I grew up watching Nightbreed and I hadn't read the book since high school. Having recently finished it I realized how much the movie is close to the book. I love the imagination of Clive Barker and his monsters. It is always a literary treat as a horror fan to read his novels. Recommended for anyone who comes across this as a newcomer to Clive Barker.

This was an amazing read/listen. I really enjoyed the audio book version. I am an extremely busy person and have little free time to sit down and read from an actual book. I was first exposed to the movie, Nightbreed, in the late 1990s and I did not understand the concept at all. Moreover, my level of immaturity as a teen would not have allowed for my comprehension of a multi-faceted gem such as Clive Barker's Cabal. I now am mature enough to fathom the depths of this nightmarish tale and I highly recommend it to all horror fans. But be forewarned: the one-dimensional approach is not present throughout the story. This is a three-dimensional story that attacks all of the emotions head on, and with no remorse for doing as such. This classic tale could be categorized as more than a horror title. There are elements that could land this title in as SCI-FI, Romance, Drama, Thriller, Action, and oh yes... HORROR.

I have been a long time fan of Clive Barker and finally sat to read this book after being a fan of the movie for so long. The text is nearly word for word the same as the movie, but some more light is shed on Decker's motivations and Lori's love for Boone. The ending clears up what I always felt was an empty ending in the film.

Very weird story. I’m not sure if I enjoyed it or not. It was interesting but not the kind of thing I’d probably normally read. Pretty creepy, violent, and sexual. A haunting combination, I guess.

I absolutely loved the movie as a child. I just read the book now I'm more in love with the book than the movie. There are huge differences, I suggest reading the book before watching the movie.

I have always had a fondness for this short novel. This is my third time reading it, and it seems as timely now as it did when I originally read it, perhaps even more so today with our current political climate. I have always enjoyed slimmer books more than long reads, and Cabal gets right to the point, with nary an extraneous paragraph, unlike some of Barker's weightier monstrosities, like Weaveworld and the massive Imajica. It's a tale of monsters and the good Christian folk who decide to destroy them, not because they've hurt anyone but because they are different. I only wish Mr. Barker had followed it with a few more literary installments, as the end of Cabal begs for a sequel or three. There has been a cult classic movie called Nightbreed and a comic books series, but the author has never added to the story directly, as far as I know, which is something of a disappointment. Perhaps it is better to leave it as it is, and let the imaginations of the readers finish the story themselves. If you are a fan of imaginative horror and dark fantasy, you need to grab this book. It is a fast and entertaining book that is not bogged down by the bloat so common in modern literature. It really is a minor classic, I think. This book was originally released with some short stories at the end, but I kind of prefer this as a stand alone novel. It was so much better than the slightly boring stories that were tacked onto the end of it when it first came out. Not for the kiddies.
Wow. Why has it taken me so long to get into this masterpiece of horror fiction? WHY? I remember growing up in the late 80s and throughout the 90s, Barker was something of an enigma. The only work I really knew of the man was through the Hellraiser films, which to were to say, taboo, in their own day. But I never ventured into reading his books or stories. What ill fortune for me to have ignored his literary works. His prose is unmatched, different, poetic even. I'm a huge fan of Stephen King for just the same reason, his style of writing. But Barker's style is something else entirely. He doesn't draw you in with internal thoughts so much. He draws you in with storytelling and his development of mythos. And getting to the point of the matter, Cabal ought to be on everyone's must read list, especially considering the books short but beautiful novella length. Cabal is romance-horror and though I've seen this kind of story before, I've never it done in such a powerful way. The idea of romantic characters and horror isn't something thought of when thinking of the macabre. Comedy and horror, sure. Laughing and screaming go hand and hand. But romance, longing, almost ritualistic in nature, beside the cunning debauchery of gore and monsters? Well...its very cleaver and adds to the tragedy of it all.
