Praise for The Damnation Game

“A deliciously scary tale…Barker’s brilliantly literary work has raised horror to a level of excellence it has rarely reached before.”—Whitley Streiber

“Original and memorable…engrossing…disturbing…Horror mavens who enjoy violence and harrowing imagery will find plenty of both here. But there is more to The Damnation Game than gore. This story of a supernaturally powerful man who can resurrect the dead probes the many varieties of corruption.”—Publishers Weekly

“Remarkably powerful…Barker has created a truly legendary monster. In pure descriptive power there is no one writing horror fiction now who can match him.”—The Washington Post

“Wonderful, moving and apocalyptic. Death and damnation hang at the end of every chapter. Barker makes us squirm.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Will fry your eyes off! Keep the lights on.”—Larry King

“A masterly novel…a thrill a minute.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“A tour de force of gruesome supernatural horror…startling, hard-hitting, graphic…brilliantly executed.”—Fantasy Review

“A horrifying thriller.”—The Wall Street Journal

“A gripping tale of hideous evil.”—New York Daily News

“A writer of stunning imagination…With his artist’s eye for detail, Barker instills a mythic quality into his vision of hell.”—The Atlanta Journal & Constitution

The most literate and disturbing horror novel I have ever read. This is the place that nightmares are spawned—read it at your own peril, but read it you must!”—Imagine

“A powerful, thrilling novel that provokes the imagination and raises the blood pressure.”—The Orlando Sentinel

“Frightening…Scalpel-clean prose and wild inventiveness.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Powerful…original…Barker’s horror is elegant enough that one can admire it as a kind of hellish choreography, with the characters all dancing to his phantasmagorical tune.”—New York Newsday
