Cal Mooney is mysteriously drawn towards an old house in Liverpool. There - in the form of a carpet - he sees a world taking shape that he knows he wants to be a part of.  Weaveworld is a magical place where good and evil clash.

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.
