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.
