Clive Barker has made equal contributions to film, fiction, and the visual arts, but always in the horror genre. His screenplay and directing credits include Hellraiser and Candyman. His short stories and novels are many, but The Thief of Always stands out for its appeal across age ranges. A novel framed as a children’s horror fable, it has been called a modern Grimm’s Fairy Tales. It follows the protagonist Harvey Swick, a young boy who is lured into the Holiday House where magical characters siphon the youth from their guests and macabre scenes elevate the horrific truth of the place. Alongside the text are original illustrations by Clive Barker–some of his best–showcasing his wide range of spooky talents.
