Review:

‘Barker’s fecundity of invention is beyond praise. In a world of hard-bitten horror and originality, Clive Barker dislocates your mind.’
THE MAIL ON SUNDAY.

‘Passionate and ingenious… A ride with remarkable views’
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

‘An invocation of both magic and the imagination… A majestic maze of mythmaking’
WASHINGTON TIMES

From the Back Cover:

Clive Barker is an acknowledged master at creating extraordinary new worlds and cosmologies, and Weaveworld is one of his greatest achievements – a sumptuous feast of dark fantasy and an epic adventure of the imagination.

Cal Mooney is mysteriously drawn towards an old house in Liverpool. There, in the form of an old carpet, he witnesses a world of rapture and enchantment by which he is beguiled. Unbeknownst to Cal, this is 'Weaveworld', created decades before by the Seerkind, a people more ancient than man, gifted with magical powers. Threatened with annihilation in the last century they wove themselves and their culture into a carpet for safekeepng. Now, with the last of their human caretakers dead, the Weaveworld comes to life. Dark forces are alerted by the awakening: a desperate battle is about to begin.

Weaveworld is a book of visions and horrors, a story of quest, titanic struggles, of love and hope. Barker weaves a spell of enchantment around his readers, encapsulating a world that is at once terrifying and miraculous, magical and monstrous, impossible to resist and heart-breaking to leave.
