Review:

"A powerful and fascinating write with a brilliant imagination."-- J.G. Ballard"Barker has an unparalleled talent for envisioning other worlds." -- "Washington Post Book World" "A cross between "Gravity's Rainbow" and J.R.R. Tolkein's "Lord of the Rings, " allusive and mythic, complex and entertaining. Extravagantly metaphorical, wildly symbolic." -- "New York Times" "Rich and absorbing...vivid...incisive and elegant." -- "Time" "[Clive Barker] is a mapmaker of the mind, charting the farthest reaches of the imagination...His ambition and audacity are unparalleled; we know that we are in the presence of a vision that is genuine, unique and lasting." -- "The Washington Times"
