4.0 von 5 Sternen Holds surprises even for the most well versed of horror fans
I picked up and flipped through Barker's A-Z of Horror on at least through occassions before purchasing it. My first thought was - this is a picture book on horror - I have alot of these, do I need another? My second was - I know horror, A-Z books are for beginners. Then one day I sat and read the first few chapters and I was hooked. The book is at once and...

1.0 von 5 Sternen HORROR-IBLY Disappointing
Glossy, high-concept, yes! Satisfying, high-content, not even close! This book looks lovely but has almost nothing to say about horror, and that's too bad. Barker is certainly one of the most influential horror writers alive, and he's also quite a personality. But this book feels like it was thrown together with very little work on Barker's part. The entries are...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Holds surprises even for the most well versed of horror fans, 11. September 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Clive Barker's A-Z Horror (Taschenbuch)
I picked up and flipped through Barker's A-Z of Horror on at least through occassions before purchasing it. My first thought was - this is a picture book on horror - I have alot of these, do I need another? My second was - I know horror, A-Z books are for beginners. Then one day I sat and read the first few chapters and I was hooked. The book is at once and abbreviated Danse Macabre, a morphology of fear and a history of Horror. And there are some surprises which are a consequence of Barker's unique perspective from Europe (i.e. the chapter on Dennis Wheatley). My only real criticism was the absence of a chapter on Stephen King - we have alot of supporting quotes from King scattered through the book, but no effort by Barker to situate King within the heritage of horror. This is a real weakness and can only have been a conscious decision (which is why the book only gets 4 stars). Overall the book is superb, with outstanding visual supports. The harcover book is a real nice addition to anyone's library and I would highly recommend it. Later.

1.0 von 5 Sternen HORROR-IBLY Disappointing, 11. Januar 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Clive Barker's A-Z Horror (Taschenbuch)
Glossy, high-concept, yes! Satisfying, high-content, not even close! This book looks lovely but has almost nothing to say about horror, and that's too bad. Barker is certainly one of the most influential horror writers alive, and he's also quite a personality. But this book feels like it was thrown together with very little work on Barker's part. The entries are all short enough and sufficiently eclipsed by the artwork--which IS impressive--that Barker gets by without saying very much about any of them. What's worse, he has an irritating way of sounding profound without actually having anything of substance to say. I can't imagine anyone coming away from this book having learned anything from it or thinking about horror differently than they did when they opened it up (although perhaps it would bring new names to their attention).
All of this is disappointing because, as I've said, Barker is a very influential figure in the genre. He's also quite controversial. Readers have a right to expect better from him than they get here.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Clive Barker's A-Z Horror (Taschenbuch)
What an excellent book, I'm so glad I bought this. It covers the likes of horrors such as PSYCHO, DERANGED, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, EXORCIST, HALLOWEEN, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET...ETC. Very interesting and informal, I recommend this book.
