*Enter into Professor Michael Friday's world through the pages of his personal journal, where every diseased thought, disturbing dream, politically incorrect rant and sexually explicit murder highlights his journey from zero to psycho.*
"The Venus Complex" is the dark crime debut novel by Barbie Wilde, who is best known as the Female Cenobite from Clive Barker's "Hellbound: Hellraiser II".
(Published by Comet Press. Cover artwork by Daniele Serra.)
"A novel by a female Cenobite that gives the world a smart, artistic, cynical, cultured serial killer who could give Hannibal Lecter a run for his money. On top of that, this is a poignant, funny, sexually-charged, hardcore critique of popular culture and a deconstruction of relationships, academia, and art."
- Gabino Iglesias, Horror Talk
"Wilde is adept in creating true terror by holding up the mirror to our darker side."
- Horror Drive-In
"Wilde's great triumph here is that she goes all the way with her
man Friday, allowing his nasty flights of fancy full reign."
- New York Times bestselling author John Skipp for Fangoria Online
". . . one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror fiction around."
"Damaged people, ultraviolence, murder and explicit sex -- what's not to love about her work?"
