Barker: D’Amour versus Pinhead Novel, The Scarlet Gospels, is Done!


We don’t cover book news much here at Shock, however, this is significant enough to warrant a post here.

Clive Barker has been juggling a number of projects over the last few years, including a novel entitled “The Scarlet Gospels” – his long-mooted “end of Pinhead” story also saw the return of “The Last Illusion’s Harry D’Amour.

Barker jumped on Facebook today to drop a huge announcement: “The Scarlet Gospels” is complete and in his publisher’s hands.  Read on for more.

According to Barker:

I thought you might like to know that THE SCARLET GOSPELS,a large novel which sets Harry D’Amour against the Hell Priest Pinhead,is finished,and has been delivered to my agent. I don’t yet have a publication date for it,but as soon as I do you’ll be the first to know. I won’t say anything about the narrative except this: it’s a HORROR NOVEL with the graphic violence and perverse eroticism of the most intense tales from the Books Of Blood.Please feel free to share this news with any friends who might have been wondering about the book :THE SCARLET GOSPELS ARE FINISHED.

Cannot wait…
