I am on a Barker jag at the moment. I just finished re-reading Imajica and am now re-reading Weaveworld.
This was my first foray into the wonderful fantasy world of Clive Barker - I had seen the Hellraiser movies but hadn't read anything by him until I borrowed this one years and years ago from a friend. I couldn't put it down and actually refused to stop reading until it got so dark I couldn't see properly!
I love the worlds he creates. This one in particular, the magical fantasy land inside a tapestry carpet, just got my attention. A world we dream of or only see it dreams, called The Fugue has been hidden in a carpet to save it from those who would rule and destroy it.
The characters make this come alive and I am trying to read it slowly to make it last but yeah, that's impossible LOL I guess I can console myself with knowing that I can then re-read The Great and Secret Show - or Cold Heart Canyon! The possibilities and worlds, are endless.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
