Books Of Blood Advent Calendar – A Tribute To Clive Barker


The Books Of Blood Advent Calendar

A Tribute To Clive Barker

Clive Barker’s Books Of Blood is my favourite book. End of. That’s it. Each story offers something new and shaped me into the reader I am today. To be honest, I’m not sure I’d still be reading today if it wasn’t for finding these six books as an impressionable teenager.

It wasn’t just me that Clive made an impression on. For the next 24 days, I’m delighted to bring you thoughts and reflections on each story within the Books Of Blood from fans all over the world.

I’m honoured to bring you the Kendall Reviews ‘Books Of Blood’ Advent Calendar.
