The Inhuman Condition : Tales of Terror by Clive Barker
New York : Poseidon press, 1986. First Edition. Hardcover. 220 pages ; 19 cm. $12.95 dust jacket. Pages are unmarked and binding is firm.
In these five tales you will discover Th Inhuman Condition—a world of ordinary people, going about their daily business, until suddenly they take a wrong turn and find themselves on the twisted back roads of the human psyche, in a world of powerful eroticism, violence and uncontrollable desires. Here hands begin a violent revolution against the minds that control them; conundrums lie hidden in a piece of knotted string—and each knot, when unraveled, releases a dark, hungering nightmare; here the living and the dead find an unholy sexual alliance in a forsaken motel room; here the first truly effective aphrodisiac releases a monstrous depravity upon the world; here a palace is built to lure Satan back to earth.
Travel these harrowing roads with Mr. Barker, and watch as he unflinchingly reveals the landscape. His wit will lure you, his supple style will delight you, his graphic vision will scare the daylights out of you. He will darken your daydreams and illuminate your nightmares.
