i don't know much about him and just started reading one of his books but i think i want him to be ILI please?
I've looked through an interview and my first thought was that ILI is very likely. He sounds dynamic + process making him be on the D-A supervision chain which is ILI-LSE-SEI-EIE.
and this has sealed the deal heheCB: You don't want readers to feel you're hiding an insecurity about what you're describing behind a little firework display of language.
Probably Beta NF, or just NF. I read a book of his (Cabal), it was so hard follow and the events were so counter-intuitive... Otherwise I played Undying and it was awesome, really good horror game.
Damnation Game was good and could have been adapted into an excellent movie, but everything else I read by Barker 20,000,000 years ago was kinda lame.
Around 1997-98 I recall hearing Barker as a guest with Neil Gaiman on Mancow's radio show, and racial comedian D.L. Hughley, who was also booked to appear at the same time in the studio with these two openly homosexual horror/fantasy writers, could only keep nervously repeating "Y'all need some Jesus!"
That is all.
