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...

What you see is not a book at all but a terrifying embodiment of purest evil. Can you feel the electric tingle coursing through your body as you are absorbed by the demon Jakabok’s tale of his unintentional ascent from the depths of the Inferno? Do you sense the cold dread worming its way into your bloodstream, your sinews, and the marrow of your bones as you read more deeply into his earthly education and unspeakable acts? This tale has been waiting patiently for you for nearly six hundred years. And now, before you are completely in its thrall, you would do well to follow the foul creature’s admonition and destroy this abomination of ink and paper before you turn a single leaf and are lost forever.

You have been warned.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Crystal | 6/27/2011

    " 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. "
