In only three years Clive Barker has made an impressive entrance on the horror scene...'The Damnation Game' takes place, appropriately, in hell, a hell that could spring only from Clive Barker's singular imagination; amid the gaming clubs and blasted back alleys of contemporary London; on vast country estates, fortresses armed against the invasion of an evil for which there is no human defencse; in a nightworld where men and women make love with ghosts, and corpse-assassins walk among the living, stalking their prey even as they decompose." - from the dj flap.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
