Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Galilee. "Galilee" (1998) is a fantastic, dark period romantic novel with a few Barker twists. Supernatural subplot aside, it's almost a "straight" piece.
Everville. "Everville" (1994) is the "Second Book of the Art" and a continuation of the first. Barker hopes to add to the series.
Imajica. While the other three were long, it was "Imajica" (1991) clocking in at over 1000 pages that was split into two volumes for paperback release. The two volumes were "The Fifth Dominion" and "The Reconciliation."
Coldheart Canyon. "Cold Heart Canyon" (2001) is about "old Hollywood" but done Clive Barker style with lots of sex, ghosts and gossip. It's also one of the most "mainstream" things he's ever written.
The Hellbound Heart . "The Hellbound Heart" is a stand-alone novella that Barker originally published in 1987.
Saint Sinner. "Saint Sinner", directed by Joshua Butler, aired on the Sci Fi Channel in 2003. It was an original story not based on one of Barker's earlier books or short stories.
Son of Celluloid. "The Yattering and Jack" was one of the earliest Barker adaptations. It was part of "Tales From the Darkside". The "Body Politic" was a part of the TV movie "Quicksilver Highway". "The Forbidden" was the story that "The Candyman" feature film was based on.
11. Barker's first book was "The Damnation Game" (1985) and his most recent has been the children's book "Abarat" (2002).
Samuel Hastrim the Fifth. Yes, it's the fifth and I hope you've enjoyed this quiz!
Right. If you'll check a picture you can clearly see Shape is missing his right foot.
Odom's Spire. Odom's Spire, because yes, there are 25 Hours for all the islands, the 25th being the Time out of Time, Orlando's Cap is the Hour of 2:00 PM and Huffaker is the Hour of 9:00 PM.
Playing cards on the Isabella. Playing cards on the Isabela obviously because she never went to any of the other islands in the first book.
12:00 Midnight. Yes, 12:00 Midnight, also known as the Island of Midnight where Christopher Carron resides his tower.
Kaspar Wolfswinkel. The wizard, Kaspar Wolfswinkel murdered five wizards in order to gain their hats, where they kept all of their magic. Bill Quakenbush was Candy's father, but he was drunk, and the other two characters I made up myself.
Room 19. Yes, he committed suicide but you will HEAR a lot about him in book number two!

Liverpool, England. Clive was born in Liverpool, England, but moved to Beverly Hills, California.
The Forbidden. "Sweets to the sweet..."
The Damnation Game. "The Damnation Game" was developed after publishers urged Clive Barker to focus on writing a novel as a sell-point instead of the short story format that propelled him into the world of horror with his "Books of Blood".
The Body Politic. "The Body Politic" was adapted for television along with "Chattering Teeth" by Steven King. Starring Christopher Lloyd as a travelling man with a taste for the macabre, "Quicksilver Highway" is a must have for Barker fans... even though the special effects leave much to be desired!
Doug Bradley. Doug Bradley has played "Pinhead" in every Hellraiser film to date, and was initially turned off by the role in the original movie as he had not yet made a name for himself as an actor in Hollywood.
Nimrod. Nimrod, whom Cal and Suzanna first met when he was magically turned into a baby, has gorgeous golden eyes. Even when he is turned back into his normal self (complete with a tail and skin slightly blue), he retains his gold eyes. Nimrod was transfixed by the lies the Prophet told, and was then ashamed to have been tricked. Later he gained his senses and helped fight against Shadwell and Hobart's army. He befriended both Suzanna and Cal and was there till the end.
Chariot Street. Rue Street is where Mimi resided, Nonesuch is a street where a battle took place, and Rayment's Hill is where the Seerkind hid from the Scourge. Chariot Street is where Cal lived with his parents, even after they both perished. It is mentioned several times throughout the book. Lilia died here, as well. After the Scourge is awakened, the house is destroyed.
Mimi Laschenski. Mimi was a Custodian; she was the last one alive. She meant to give the book to Suzanna when Suzanna was only a child, but wasn't able to. Not completely human, Mimi had the power to control raptures. Suzanna kept the book close to her until Hobart confiscated it.
The Lo, the Ye-me, the Babu, and the Aia. These families make up what is left of the Seerkind. They are families from which the Seerkind are all descended. Lilia and Nimrod are Ye-me, Cammell is Aia, Jerichau is Babu, and Apolline is a mixture of Aia and something else- a rapture from her father.
Jude Pears. "One of the species we've never shared with the Cuckoos," claimed Boaz, Cal's first guide. The fruit is meaty and delicious. Cal is warned not to eat too many. He took some of the fruit with him before he left the orchard. It was this fruit that helped Cal remember the Wonderland.
Lemuel Lo. The kindly orchard owner was dazzled by the poem Cal recited. It came from his uncle, Mad Mooney. Lo survives and remains friends with Cal, who loves the fruit his orchard creates.
33. The bird does return home. 33 and its mate stay with Cal for almost the entire book. In fact, Cal sold every racing pigeon except those two. Later in the novel, Cal releases them for their own safety.
She returned to the Canyon. Along with Maxine (who felt the same unease), Tammy returned to the house in the Canyon. There, they met Todd's ghost and attempted to escape from the angel tormenting him. When the angel caused them to crash, Todd bargained for the girls' lives. His soul was gently taken away and the girls survived. When Tammy recovered from her wounds, Maxine took complete care of her. She helped Tammy burn all of her useless Todd Pickett memorabilia.
The ghosts completely destroyed the house. Because Tammy was able to pull the symbols from the threshold, the ghosts were free to return to the house. Upon learning that the Devil's Country was ruined, the ghosts grew furious. They tore the walls, ceiling, and anything else that they could get their hands on- including Katya. She was ripped to shreds because she had refused to let them enter her house. After the ghosts had finished their destruction, the house could barely stand.
