Paul says:

You’ll get:
-A copy of my novella RED (intro by Tim Lebbon, art by Dave McKean) – signed by me… I’ve seen this going for about £60 on collecting sites, as it’s quite a rare/limited printing.

– A copy of the first print run (limited) edition FunnyBones with the original layout cover, signed by me – again quite a rare one now, as it was reprinted for a larger market later with a different cover.

– And a copy of Hellbound Hearts (Pocket Books/Simon & Schuster) signed by Marie and myself (stories by the likes of Steve Niles, Nancy Holder, Sarah Pinborough, Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean, Christopher Golden & Mike Mignola, Mick Garris, set in the world of Clive Barker’s mythology).

Evil Takes on Many Forms

This is something Rachael Daniels, a lowly careworker, is about to find out… personally. Because something is roaming the streets of the city where she lives, something with a taste for human blood: sweet, red blood. Something that can be anything it wants to be. Soon Rachael will learn that not even friendly faces can be trusted. And as she makes her way across that city at night on an errand of mercy, she discovers that this creature will definitely have none for her.

A modern, urban reworking of a classic tale, RED puts the horror spin on an old favorite. If you dare to open these pages, you’ll find a terrifying trip into the unknown courtesy of British Fantasy Award Nominee Paul Kane, author of Touching the Flame, Signs of Life, The Lazarus Condition, Arrowhead and Dead Time (adapted by Steve ’30 Days of Night’ Niles as New Year’s Day for the Lionsgate/NBC television show Fear Itself, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman – SAW II-IV).

Introduction by New York Times bestselling author Tim Lebbon (The Everlasting, Fallen).

Cover art by Dave McKean, designer/director of the Neil Gaiman film, MirrorMask, and illustrator for Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.

Paul Kane – author of Alone (in the Dark) and Touching the Flame – has returned, not to terrify this time, but to tickle the funnybone. Inside this book you’ll find a collection of his most outrageous humorous horror, with stories ranging from “Dracula in Love” to “The Last Temptation of Alice Crump”…and not forgetting fan favourite “The Bones Brothers.” Funnybones also includes several of the adventures of Dalton Quayle, that most famous of supernatural detectives.



Clive Barker’s iconic masterpiece The Hellbound Heart, the novella adapted into the film Hellraiser, unleashed a new mythology of horror, brilliantly conceived and born of the darkest imagination. Featured here is the graphic work “Wordsworth,” from bestselling author Neil Gaiman and artist Dave McKean, who unlock an explicit way to violate innocence–one torturous puzzle at a time…New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong logs on to a disturbing website for gamers, where the challenge is agonizing, and the solution beyond painful. When his father disappears an Oxford student returns to his family’s man-sion, where a strange mechanism in the cellar holds a curious power, in a haunting illustrated work by Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola.
