Book Three of Clive Barker's "Art" Draws Nearer

Things are definitely turning a corner for dehydrated fans of Clive Barker's epic "Art" trilogy of novels. Fangoria's Web site features a tantalizing update on horror's busiest sideliner, and there's a lot of talk about the oft-promised final book. The best news is that you won't have to wait for the unnamed last book of "The Art" to get your fix. IDW, who last year published a well received comic adaptation of Barker's "The Thief of Always," will begin releasing a twelve-part comic version of book one of "The Art" ("The Great and Secret Show") next month, and book two ("Everville") is likely to follow eventually.

Other exciting news from the Barker camp includes word that he's pounding the final pin in the head of everyone's favorite "Hellraiser" villain. "The Scarlet Gospels," the first work of fiction by Clive in which Pinhead will figure, is apparently turning into one hell of a big book, and it sounds like the last installment of "The Art" may end up even bigger. We can also look forward to a "Masters of Horror" episode based on a treatment by Clive in season two of that ground-breaking program and loads of other stuff. It all sounds good, as long as the "Abarat" quartet stays on the radar screen. If I have to wait as long for Clive to polish off the "Abarat" books as I have for a conclusion to "The Art," I'm going to scream into my pillow until I pass out.--Pete Mesling
