Once asked by an interviewer what he wanted (besides his name) on his tombstone, Clive Barker replied 'Imaginer'. Imagination is the force that brings his work as a painter into being and the fuel that sustains the creative process.…

I wish I had the words to express how much Abarat means to me... I'm sorry I don't. But it shaped me into the creator I am. Please enjoy the llama.

I dream, and work at being as great as you are (as far writing good horror is concerned). I'm already working on my debut novel. Sad that there are so few readers these days, but, perhaps my tales, like yours, will live on in many other ways, for generations to come. Thanks for being such a great inspiration. And yes, you do look like someone who's been "there"... I walk that path.

Mr. Barker, I liked your six books of blood and the damnation game. I can recommend an artist incase your interested in new talent, (I don't know him but he's pretty scary), thank you :)

If you know Rob Zombie, maybe you can let him know about mopaa too.

Do you know trent reznor?

Did you know HR Giger?

Be safe.

When I found out you had a deviantart I flipped out. I've been a huge fan of yours since my step dad told me to read the great and secret show which I absolutely loved. Right after I finished the great and secret show I read Mister B. Gone in less than two days which is now my all time favorite book. I'm going to be starting Imajica soon which I also cannot wait to do! You're my biggest role model as well as the reason I hope to one day be a writer/artist. Thank you so much Mr. B(arker) you're amazing!
