Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed

Sold by Macmillan
Free sample

Clive Barker's Nightbreed has been controversial since the moment it was released in a version edited by the studio and roundly condemned by Barker, who wrote and directed the movie. A virtually instant cult film based on Barker's novella Cabal, it was nominated for three Saturn Awards and won several prizes at European film festivals.

Midian Unmade tells the stories of the Nightbreed after the fall of their city, Midian. Driven from their homes, their friends and family members slain before their eyes, the monsters become a mostly-hidden diaspora. Some are hunted; others, hunters. Some seek refuge. Others want revenge.

Contributors include: Karl Alexander, author of the classic novel Time After Time; actor, writer, and director Amber Benson (Tara Maclay on Buffy the Vampire Slayer); New York Times bestselling author Nancy Holder; Hugo and John W. Campbell Award winner Seanan McGuire; Bram Stoker Award winner Weston Ochse; David J. Schow, winner of the World Fantasy Award and writer of the screenplay for The Crow; New York Times bestselling writer Stephen Woodworth; and many more—23 stories in all.

With an introduction by Clive Barker, this is an outstanding collection of original horror short stories in a dazzling variety of styles.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

 In a suburb on Boston’s North Shore, a catatonic little girl is found behind a dumpster. She is a mystery. As Social Worker Debbie Gillan pieces together the puzzle of the child's identity, she discovers the child had disappeared two years earlier along with a twin sister. She also discovers HANNAHWHERE, an alternate world that is both a haven and a prison.... Life altering trauma becomes the key to unraveling the truth about the children, about Hannahwhere...and about Debbie herself. Truths that could either save them or destroy them all.

“HANNAHWHERE is a revelation.  This constantly surprising novel has some very dark moments, but John McIlveen's clean, clear prose carries you through them and back into the light of the good, decent people who fuel this story with their desperate efforts to do the right thing.  Hannah herself is a joy.  If she were up for adoption, I'd be the first in line.”

-- F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of COLD CITY


“HANNAHWHERE by John McIlveen is everything a book should be--filled with unforgettable characters, fast-paced, and a page-turner. I loved it!”

-- Heather Graham, New York Times bestselling author of LET THE DEAD SLEEP 

"From the very first line of HANNAHWHERE, you know you're in good hands. John McIlveen raises a compelling new voice with a story that is at once playful and frightening, thrilling and heartbreaking. Highly recommended."

-- Jonathan Maberry, New York TImes bestselling author of ROT & RUIN and FIRE & ASH. 

"John McIlveen's HANNAHWHERE is a thrilling, emotionally complex paranormal mystery.  The little girls at the center of the story will touch your heart and unsettle you, all at the same time.  A wonderful first novel from an exciting new voice in genre fiction."

-- Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of SNOWBLIND 

"Love it, love it, LOVE IT!"

-- Rick Hautala, bestselling author of THE DEMON'S WIFE


A chilling thriller that brilliantly blends psychological suspense and supernatural horror, reminiscent of Stephen King's The Shining, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, and William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist.

The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, are torn apart when fourteen-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia.

To her parents’ despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie’s descent into madness. As their stable home devolves into a house of horrors, they reluctantly turn to a local Catholic priest for help. Father Wanderly suggests an exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession. He also contacts a production company that is eager to document the Barretts’ plight. With John, Marjorie’s father, out of work for more than a year and the medical bills looming, the family agrees to be filmed, and soon find themselves the unwitting stars of The Possession, a hit reality television show. When events in the Barrett household explode in tragedy, the show and the shocking incidents it captures become the stuff of urban legend.

Fifteen years later, a bestselling writer interviews Marjorie’s younger sister, Merry. As she recalls those long ago events that took place when she was just eight years old, long-buried secrets and painful memories that clash with what was broadcast on television begin to surface—and a mind-bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed, raising vexing questions about memory and reality, science and religion, and the very nature of evil.

Cade Williams era apenas um polícia normal, até à noite em que um anjo caído quase o matou. Agora comanda a Equipa Echo, um esquadrão de operações especiais dos Cavaleiros Templários modernos, e as coisas que eles caçam são muito mais sombrias, e muito mais mortíferas que os criminosos que se habituou a enfrentar
Quando bases Templárias são atacadas por forças desconhecidas, Cade e a sua equipa são chamados para investigar. Descobrem uma cabala de necromantes, aliados com o Adversário, o mesmo anjo caído que, anos antes, matara a mulher de Cade, Gabrielle, e que deixara Cade às portas da morte.
Para impedir que uma relíquia ancestral caia nas mãos do Adversário, os Templários são obrigados a levar a batalha até ao inimigo, e entretanto, Cade tem a oportunidade de fazer uma das coisas que mais deseja desde a noite em que a mulher morreu.
“A Vingança é minha,” diz o Senhor, mas Cade tem um ajuste de contas para fazer, e não vai deixar que as regras o impeçam.
