In The Flesh is a collection of short stories written by Clive Barker and read
by Dillinger Steele on four cassettes. It is the fifth installment of the Books
of Blood series. In the depths of an abandoned steam bath, strangely beautiful
women seduce two businessmen into a ritual of macabre sexuality; in a Greek
asylum, wise men race frogs to decide the fate of the world; a petty convict's
cellmate reveals to him the gruesome birth of evil; a young woman's slum
research leads her into the hook handed grip of the Candyman, a vicious
supernatural killer.

In the Flesh
A prison inmate named Cleve gets a new cellmate, a mysterious young man called
Billy, who admits that he committed a crime with the sole intention of coming
to this particular prison. Billy believes he has been summoned there by his
grandfather, a supposedly powerful sorcerer who was buried in the prison after
his execution for murder years before. Billy's efforts to summon his
grandfather Tait's spirit cause Cleve to be haunted by dreams in which he
travels to a form of purgatory for murderers, where killers are obliged to
spend some portion of their after life in a replica of the scene of their
crime. In the end, Billy vanishes from his cell. His grandfather's coffin is
exhumed and found to contain Billy curled up next to his grandfather's corpse.
Once released, Cleve finds that his travels to the murderer's purgatory have
left him with the ability to hear other people's thoughts, as long as they
revolve around killing people. He becomes disillusioned with humanity and
becomes a heroin addict to suppress his newfound powers. Cleve later commits a
murder himself to feed his habit, and is shot dead by the police. He spends an
indeterminate amount of time in his own murderer's purgatory, before
discovering that individuals can escape via reincarnation.

The Forbidden
A university student named Helen is doing a thesis on graffiti, and selects a
run-down estate to focus her study. She notices disturbing graffiti in an
abandoned building that makes references to an urban legend known as the
Candyman. Further inquiries lead her to believe this is connected with recent
murders and mutilations in the neighborhood, although the locals are seemingly
reluctant to discuss the incidents. She eventually encounters the Candyman
himself, gaining notoriety by becoming his latest victim.

The Madonna
A man named Jerry is trying to talk a local shady businessman into financing
the redevelopment of an old swimming pool complex. However, the pool has some
mysterious inhabitants in the form of nude teenage girls who flee should Jerry
or his would-be financial backer encounter them. A swimming pool in the center
is unlike the other pools in the building, in that it is full, glows with a
strange light, and appears to be inhabited by some misshapen life-form.
Curiosity leads Jerry to return to the place, which somehow causes him to wake
up one morning to see that he has been transformed into a woman.

Babel's Children
After breaking down in the middle of nowhere, a young woman named Vanessa Jape
happens across a secluded compound in which the world's greatest minds, a group
of elderly scientists and scholars, are responsible for determining the outcome
of major world events. They have lived in the complex for many years and by
this point their decisions have degenerated to being made solely via games of
chance. Chaos ensues when Vanessa and the men seek to flee the compound. They
end up getting in a car accident, and all the elders are killed with the
exception of the single one who refused to go along. Vanessa is forced to
participate in the games of chance with him until replacements can be found.
