On the borderland between this world and the world of Quiddity, the sea of our dreams, sits Everville. For years it has lived in ignorance of the gleaming shore on which it lies. But its ignorance is not bliss.On a mountain peak, high above the city of Everville, a door stands open onto the shores of the dream-sea Quiddity. And there's not a soul below who'll not be changed by that fact... Phoboe Cobb, once a doctor's receptionist, is about to forget her old life and go looking for her lost lover Joe Flicker in the strange, sensual wonderland on the other side of that door. Tesla Bombeck, who knows what horrors lurk on the far side of Quiddity, must solve the mysteries of the city's past if she is to keep those horrors from crossing the threshold. Harry D'Amour, who has traced the ultimate evil across America, will find it conjuring atrocities in the sunlit streets of Everville.

Clive Barker was born in Liverpool in 1952. He is the worldwide bestselling author of the Books of Blood, and of numerous novels including Imajica, The Great and Secret Show, Sacrament and Galilee. In addition to his work as a novelist and short story writer, he also illustrates, writes, directs and produces for the stage and screen.From AudioFile:
It may be the abridgment, but this attempt at horror is more fatiguing than frightening. Barker's story goes in various directions with little regard for logic or character motivation. Even experienced narrator John Glover can't do much with Barker's banal dialogue. D.A.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
