A master returns with Mister B. Gone

Mister. B. Gone

Clive Barker

Harper Collins

Release: October 30, 2007

What better Halloween present can a DoorQ receive that the return of Clive Barker?It’s true he never really left us.He’s been working on his young adult series, Abarat, but these are just as brilliant, albeit less scary, then his adult books.

Rest assured kiddies, he is back.

Mister B. Gone is his triumphant return to adult literature and with it he brings us one of his most original characters, a demon trapped in a book that details his own life story, Jakabok Botch.Mister B. to his friends.

A smarmy, demanding character he is.

Mister B. Gone begins with the simple command to “Burn this book.”It starts as a request and soon becomes a demand, a plea, a negotiation, and an ultimatum.

Our demon friend wants nothing more than for his printed prison to be charred asunder and he won’t take no for an answer.

He speaks directly to us.Demanding we destroy his book, even giving us pieces of his life story in return for his oblivion.He tells us his story of how he went from a lowly demon in the ninth level of hell to the imprisoned, wretched force that he is now.It is quite a journey.At times funny and sad, endearing and horrifying, it certainly is Mr. Barker at the top of his game.

Barker has given us a character to love and hate; to fear and pity.Mister B. speaks to us so plainly and sincerely that it is hard to remember that this is only a book.It is hard to keep yourself from glancing over your shoulder to make sure he isn’t about to make due on his promises.You may even find yourself searching for the flame that Mister B. so deeply craves.

Don’t grant his wishes though.Read on and discover the dark secrets he has to give.

You’ll find yourself immensely satisfied, if not a touch unnerved, at the end of your journeys together.

If anything, think of it as a tasty appetizer to hold you over until Mr. Barker releases his epic send off for Pinhead in the eagerly awaited “Scarlet Gospels.”
