A master storyteller and unrivaled visionary, Clive Barker has mixed the real and unreal with the horrible and wonderful in more than twenty years of fantastic fiction. The Inhuman Condition is a masterwork of surrealistic terror, recounting tragedy with pragmatism, inspiring panic more than dread and evoking equal parts revulsion and delight.

Praise For The Inhuman Condition

Time Ever since the heyday of horror fiction...aficionados have been awaiting a writer to transcend the genre and give it new legitimacy. Clive Barker may be the man...witty, unpredictable, and concise....Each story involves an uncanny mix of eroticism and terror.
