If you're in Chicago, you have a great show to see: Clive Barker's art at the Packer Schopf Gallery. One day only -- this Sunday. If you go, get me something, eh?
He'll also be at a screening of Midnight Meat Train at the Music Box. The trailer does make it look like a slasher film, but the trailer's job is to sell it to a perceived audience. I hope it retains some of the mythic weight of the original story.
Thanks for the tip-off to Boing-Boing, Gene.
