London, Collins, 1987. Limited Edition. Hardback. . Barker's third novel, and the book where the quality of his writing really starts to find its feet. "Painstakingly crafted and astonishingly original" [Rennison and Andrews, 101 Must-Read Fantasy Novels, p5]. A remarkable book, and perhaps Barker's finest. The book was nominated for the World Fantasy Award. A highlight of British (and international really), horror and dark fantasy. One of 526 copies published, 26 being lettered and reserved for private distribution (this being one of the 26). Quarter-bound, with AEG, in slipcase. Barker is one of modern horror's leading writers. Fine in fine case. Illustrations by Clive Barker & Tim White.
Clive Barker has made his mark on modern fiction by exposing all that is surreal and magical in the ordinary world --- and exploring the profound and overwhelming terror that results. With its volatile mix of the fantastical and the contemporary, the everyday and the otherworldly, Weaveworld is an epic work of dark fantasy and horror -- a tour de force from one of today's most forceful and imaginative artists.
Barker turns from his usual horror to epic-length fantasy for this account of the Fugue, a magical land inhabited by descendants of supernatural beings who once shared the earth with humans. The Fugue has been woven into a carpet for protection against those who would destroy it; the death of its guardian occasions a battle between good and particularly repulsive evil forces for control of the Fugue. Weaveworld is rich with memorable characters, exciting situations, and pockets of Barker's trademark horror.
