Banned Book Week 2017: September 24-30


It's that time of year again - a week to highlight an important issue we should pay attention to year-round, every year. Banning books for ludicrous reasons, usually due to ignorance, misconceptions, disagreements with opinions, political climate bias, and parental over-protectiveness.

As always, the official website for the Banned Books Week remains the same, bannedbooksweek.org.
While promotion and cultural enlightenment has lifted the ban hammer a bit and lightened the severity of banning books over time, or so we'd like to think, "According to the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) – which tracks reports of book challenges and bans and compiles an annual Top Ten Challenged Books List – there was an alarming 17% increase in book censorship complaints in 2016. Since most challenges are not reported, the actual number is probably much higher."

Hell has come home as Clive Barker returns to writing his signature creation!

Clive Barker has “touched” Hellraiser only twice before: once to write The Hellbound Heart, and once more to write and direct the original Hellraiser film. With the HELLRAISER ongoing series, witness Barker’s long-awaited return to tell a new chapter in the official continuity — a trajectory that will forever change the Cenobites…and Pinhead! So prepare your soul for an epic journey into horror from one of the medium’s greatest voices, and starring one of the medium’s greatest characters, in an unforgettable new chapter of Hellraiser.
