Clive Barker


Year 1987
Publisher Fontana  (William Collins Sons & Co)
ISBN 0006174892



Weaveworld is an epic adventure of the imagination.  It begins with a carpet in which a world of rapture and enchantment is hiding; a world which comes back to life, alerting the dark forces from which it was hiding, and beginning a desperate battle to preserve the last vestiges of magic which Humankind still has access to.

Mysteriously drawn by the carpet and into the world it represents are Cal Mooney and Suzanna Parrish, two young people with no knowledge of what they are about to live through and confront.  For the final conflict between the forces of good - the Seerkind - and of evil, embodied by the terrible Immacolata and her ravening twin wraith sisters, is about to take palce.




'A powerful and fascinating writer with a brilliant imagination.  Weaveworld reveals Clive Barker as an outstanding storyteller'
JG Ballard


Relative size of a brown dwarf system compared to ours

'Mini-Me' Solar System
This artist's conception shows the relative size of a hypothetical brown dwarf-planetary system compared to our own solar system. A brown dwarf is a cool or "failed" star, which lacks the mass to ignite and shine like our Sun. NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope set its infrared eyes on an extraordinarily low-mass brown dwarf called OTS 44 and found a swirling disk of planet-building dust. At only 15 times the mass of Jupiter, OTS 44 is the smallest known brown dwarf to host a planet-forming, or protoplanetary, disk.
