EVERYBODY IS A BOOK OF BLOOD;WHEREVER WE'RE OPENED, WE'RE RED. — Clive BarkerFew authors can claim to have marked a genre so thoroughly and personally that their words have leaked into every aspect of modern pop culture.  Clive Barker is such an author, and the Books of Blood marked his debut - his coming out to the world - in brilliant, unforgettable fashion.  Crossroad Press is proud to present Clive Barker's "Books of Blood" in digital for the first time.The Books of Blood combine the ordinary with the extraordinary while radiating the eroticism that has become Barker's signature. Weaving tales of the everyday world transformed into an unrecognizable place, where reason no longer exists and logic ceases to explain the workings of the universe, Clive Barker provides the stuff of nightmares in packages too tantalizing to resist. Never one to shy away from the unimaginable or the unspeakable, Clive Barker breathes life into our deepest, darkest nightmares, creating visions that are at once terrifying, tender, and witty. The Books of Blood confirm what horror fans everywhere have known for a long time: We will be hearing from Clive Barker for many years to come.This first volume contains the short stories : "The Book of Blood," "The Midnight Meat Train," "The Yattering and Jack," "Sex, Death, and Starshine," and "In the Hills, the Cities," as well as the original introduction to volumes one, two, and three by Ramsey Campbell, and a new introduction by author David Niall Wilson.

Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary

Books

Now a major motion picture from Paramount Pictures starring John Lithgow, Jason Clarke, and Amy Seimetz! Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller Pet Sematary, a “wild, powerful, disturbing” (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave—among King’s most iconic and beloved novels.When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Despite Ludlow’s tranquility, an undercurrent of danger exists here. Those trucks on the road outside the Creed’s beautiful old home travel by just a little too quickly, for one thing…as is evidenced by the makeshift graveyard in the nearby woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. Then there are the warnings to Louis both real and from the depths of his nightmares that he should not venture beyond the borders of this little graveyard where another burial ground lures with seductive promises and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. As Louis is about to discover for himself sometimes, dead is better…

From creation to salvation, they attack the essential beliefs of the Christian faith.Love Wins is about a secret deep in the heart of millions of Christians. The secret is this: they don't believe what they have been taught are the essential truths of their faith either.Out of respect for their tradition, they keep quiet, confiding to a few close, safe friends their doubts and questions about salvation (Who's in, who's out?), about Jesus (The only way?), and, of course, God (Is God violent? Are billions of people going to be punished forever in torment in hell).In Love Wins, bestsellin author Rob Bell goes to the heart of questions that haunt people of all perspectives, Christians and not, in and out of the church.Bell draws a vivid Christianity of faith as Jesus would have wanted it to be, rather than as it has been stereotyped in recent years by both fundamentalist Christians and the new atheists. At the heart of this new picture is a simple and life-changing message: Love Wins.
