‘A gripping story of powerful erotic intensity’
‘Barker’s characteristic juxataposition of fascination and fear find eloquent expression in this novella which treats death as metamorphosis into another state of being.’
From the Back Cover
The nightmare had begun....
Boone now knew for sure there was no place on this earth for him, no happiness here, not even with Lori. He would let Hell claim him, let Death take him there.
But Death itself seemed to shrink from him. No wonder, if he had indeed been the monster who had shattered and violated and shredded so many others’ lives.
And Decker had shown him the proof – the hellish photographs where the last victims were forever stilled, splayed int he last obscene moment of their torture.
Boone’s only refuge now was Midian – that awful, legendary place which gathered to itself in its monstrous embrace the half-dead, the Nightbreed...--This text refers to the Paperback edition. See all Product Description

In the dark underworld of the 'Nightbreed', we follow the heroin in her search of her dead lover, who proves to be not as dead after all. Together they defend the hidden clan from their pursuers, fulfilling an old Messianic prophecy.
I just wish Clive Barker would write a sequel to this excellent tale.
The story runs for 268 pages with some versions (the UK Fontana being one of them) including some pen and ink drawings by Barker himself illustrating the novel throughout. The story was later adapted in 1990 with Clive Barker acting as both the Director and the Screenwriter. The director David Cronenberg starred in the film as the deranged Dr. Philip Decker. The cult success (but alas not financial success) of the film, spawned a ‘Making Of Nightbreed’ book, ‘The Nightbreed Chronicles’ film companion book, a series of twenty-five comics (as well as a Genesis collection of four of the comics), a Nightbreed computer game released by Ocean, as well as various promotional items.
Cabal is a fabulous novel that should be read by anyone who is at all interested in Clive Barker’s work. A true masterpiece of fantastic horror that will grip and excite you.
Of course, the fact that this discussion can be had at all suggests that this a great book. It is. Beautiful, hypnotic, suggestive, and graceful in all its horrors - this is among Barker's very best.
