About this title

Synopsis:

Review:

"The New York Times Book Review"

Prodigious talent....Barker creates a fantastic romance of magic and promise that is at once popular fiction and utopian conjuring.



"Time"

Barker puts in strands of Joyce, Poe, Tolkien, and King himself, and emerges with the one ingredient that all good rugmakers and storytellers have in common: an irresistible yarn.



Peter Straub

"Weaveworld" is pure dazzle, pure storytelling. The mixed, tricky world where fantasy and horror overlap has been visited before -- though not very often -- and "Weaveworld" will be a guide to everyone who travels there in the future



"Cincinnati Post"

A powerfully imagined, fully executed fantasy. A book of dreams recalling William Blake instead of Lewis Carroll....Barker borrows a great many themes from literature, folklore, and religion, and makes it completely his own. He writes with a lyrical intensity that transforms some passages from prose to poetry. He infuses his villains and horrors with such venom that they are overwhelming. And he informs everything with an imagination so powerful that it creates its own reality.
