I'm reading 'Mister B Gone' by Clive Barker. I think he is in the King, Straub, writing genre. A little horror, a little goo.
Mister B Gone is a devil who is trapped in the book. He implores us to burn the book so that he may be released. Mister B Gone was once, Jakabok Botch, who was hooked by humans and brought to the surface where he wreaked havoc for a couple thousand years. It all comes to a devil/angel smackdown in Mainz, Germany.
Any guesses why Mainz?
That's where Johannes Gutenberg tinkered with the printing press.
That's all I can tell you. At last read, Gutenberg's wife is actually an angel and I think there's gonna be some wrastlin'.
