According to Clive Barker’s website, “Stoker Award-winning anthologist Del Howison (Dark Delicacies 1-3, The Book of Lists: Horror) and internationally bestselling urban fantasy author Joseph Nassise (Eyes To See, By the Blood of Heroes) have joined forces with horror Grand Master Clive Barker to bring you back to the city of Midian and the creatures of the darkness known as the Nightbreed!

“MIDIAN UNMADE: TALES OF CLIVE BARKER'S NIGHTBREED picks up where CABAL left off, chronicling the lives of the 'Breed as they disperse into the world after the fall of Midian. We're looking for stories of struggle and despair, of hope and sanctification, as the former inhabitants of Midian try to adapt to the world from which they retreated years before. A world that does not want them. A world that will hound them, hunt them, simply for the crime of being different.

“Writers have Clive's permission to use the existing members of the Breed that appear in the novella Cabal, in the film Nightbreed, and in the companion volume, The Nightbreed Chronicles, published by Titan Books. Writers also have the option of creating their own unique and fantastical creatures that fit the Nightbreed mold.”
