Coldheart Canyon by Clive Barker

Coldheart Canyon answers the question 'What if the Spider Pool were not just a wacky mosaic, but instead an entire magical tile room built by Satan's wife?' The milieu is sleazy modern Hollywood, with a respectful nod to Golden Age Hollywood, some demonic doings, and a dose of kinky futtering. The mysterious build is quite good, but my admittedly hypertrophied disbelief organ had some problems when the mystery started giving way to answers. But still some fun stuff.
