Still ducking and weaving

Now two thirds of the way through Weaveworld and so glad that I decided to re-read it. Susannah, Mimi’s daughter, and keeper of the carpet in which the Fugue is woven, is still on the run from Shadwell, Immacolata and now Hobart, the rabid policeman. She has reconnected with Cal after Jerichau has been taken and is trying to find a place to hide the carpet, not an easy thing to carry with you when you are on the run.

The tension has been constant and the imagination behind the rendering of the world is simply awe inspiring. Little wonder that Clive Barker is seen as the master of this (sub) genre.

Highly recommended for lovers of speculative fiction, fantasy and even horror.
