The Last Illusion Limited Edition!
Another Clive Barker classic is getting the limited edition treatment and this time it’s the popular Books of Blood short story The Last Illusion which features everyone’s favorite occult detective Harry D’Amour who’s been featured in various stories Clive has written over the years. Most recently he went against the demon known as Pinhead in the epic novel The Scarlet Gospels!
The Last Illusion follows occult detective Harry D’Amour, who takes a strange case where a magician named Swann has been killed under mysterious circumstances. D’Amour is recruited by Swann’s wife to watch over his body so he can be cremated in line with a letter written before his death. Almost immediately, D’Amour is drawn into a mystery beyond this world and enters a survival battle with disgusting demons from the underworld seeking to claim Swann’s body due to a deal he made with them which gave him the magical powers he possessed.
