Scarlet Gospels is shockingly bad, even if it sometimes has flashes of brilliance (there's one bit of dialogue from Pinhead that really struck me; all other dialogue from every character is juvenile snarky one liners, it's garbage). I'm not sure where the ghost writer rumors originated, though. Barker had been talking about writing it for something like 25 years, and supposedly finished the first draft about 6 years before publication. You can't imagine how sad it was looking forward to this book for 2 decades and ending up with... yeah.

The Hellbound Heart will always be a masterpiece, though.

I just want a recent horror writer who can spin amazing prose. So many have cool-ish ideas, but the writing style is sooo boring.

As a rule, I generally like the books I read to be good, yes.

When you think the entirety of humanity is a mistake, all forms of discrimination lose their appeal.

A few years ago, Ligotti said the only thing that temporarily lifted his depression was a near death experience on the operating table during surgery.
