Here’s the blurb from Fiddleblack:
Philosopher/Professor Eugene Thacker prefaces the book, providing a clear context for Cabal’s legacy in horror history and setting the tone for the essay collection, while the Church of Satan’s High Priest Peter H. Gilmore offers a necessary investigation of Cabal’s Satanic symbology. Southern Gothic author John McManus contributes notes on the novella’s subtext alongside a loving and first-hand reflection of Clive Barker from legendary “man behind the mask” Nicholas Vince who played the Chatterer in the Hellraiser film series. Official Barker archivists Phil & Sarah Stokes and Seraphim Films Vice President Mark Miller both contribute as close-to-the-fold authorities on Barker’s ultimate vision for Cabal.
And throughout this edition thought clouds pulled from Eugene Thacker’s preface are floated as endnotes on a classic, closing the book with more than thirty densely written interpretations and explanations of Barker’s black magic thinking within the story.
Bound together as a definitive edition of Clive Barker’s groundbreaking who’s-who among monsters (and men), Cabal & Other Annotations is truly a must-have version of the title for Barker fans, dark fantasy readers, and new media thinkers alike.
