The book will become a repository, before the story of Weaveworld is told; a place where vulnerable enchantments can take refuge. So inner and outer books, tales of Faerie and of Fugue, collapse into a single idea, the same precious idea that brings readers to bookstores with battered copies to be signed, and me, back to memories of a sill and an orchard to set before you. It’s such a simple idea, but it still seems to me miraculous: that in words we may preserve ideas and images precious to us. Not only preserve them, but pass them on.

He tried to sit up, but he was so heavy, so laden with the dirt of his journey he couldn't move. I'm working on a big fantasy book called Weaveworld. It's an invented world book of a kind, but it spends two-thirds of its time in this world. It has some horrific elements, some metaphysical elements and some very black jokes. I'm looking forward to it immensely. By Kim Newman, Interzone, No 14, Winter 1985/86.

Clive Barker's Weaveworld.
com User, November 4, 1997. When I first picked up a book by Clive Barker, it was one of the first books that I thought i would treasure forever. It was "The Theif of Always," given to me by my father. I have read it more times than i can count. Then one day, i picked up "Weaveworld," and I could not let it go, I could not put it down. It had to be the best book i have ever read in my short life of sixteen years.
