The astonishing new novel from bestselling author Clive Barker

Mister B. Gone marks the long-awaited return of Clive Barker, the great master of the macabre, to the classic horror story. This bone-chilling novel, in which a medieval devil speaks directly to the reader, claims to be a never-before-published demonic memoir penned in the year 1438. The sole copy was, so the story goes, created by the inventor of the printing press, Johannes Gutenberg himself. But this historic piece of writing immediately vanished without a trace.

Until now...

A demon known as Jakabok has embedded his very self inside each word of this meticulously printed tale of autobiographical terror. The reader is taunted and teased by his pleas for release from the confines of the very ink and paper that provide the vehicle for his life story. Little do they know, the depths of horror they hold in their hands. Reader beware, indeed, as Jakabok (aka Mister B.) escorts you on an unforgettable journey into the ultimate origins of good and evil.

    " Whoa, this completely caught me off guard. This book is grotesque and yet strangely addicting at the same time. The idea is fairly original, but simultaneously trite. I think I could have enjoyed this more as an overly superstitious high school student...but it wasn't bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Karen Kristie | 6/27/2011

    " This is a typical Clive Barker read. "Abarat" is still the best Barker book for me so far. Mister B is an interesting character. His soliloquies and contradicting nature often made me want to read the book out loud to myself and laugh at his antics. =) "

    " though it was not clive barkers best, iot was not that bad either. i think those who rated this one too low are just so dumb they didn't get what the book wanted to say. :)) "

    " I was very underwhelmed - I expected more from Clive Barker. The concept on the dustcover was intriguing but I found the book very slow and it at no point grabbed my attention. "
