‘Moves with tidal force and power’
- William S Burroughs

- Times Literary Supplement

From the Back Cover
A BOOK OF REVELATIONS. AN EPIC JOURNEY.
The imajica – five dominions, four reconciled. The fifth is Earth, cut off, living ignorant on the edge of a sea of possibilities, mystery and magic. Only a few know of the Imajica, and of the coming day when the Earth will be reunited with the other Dominions. And they are both terrified and in awe of the prospect.
The moment of reconciliation is now approaching. For Gentle, Judith and Pie’oh’pah it is a time of reckoning and revelation. They are driven to travel the path towards the City of the Unbeheld. It is their destiny, whatever horrors or wonders that may hold.
“He is a mapmaker of the mind, charting the farthest reaches of the imagination.”
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
'”Imajica' is a ride with remarkable views”
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
“Even greater in size and scope than 'Weaveworld'…erotic, apocalyptic, often horrifying, 'Imajica,' is beautifully written, a marvellous feat of imagination.”
“A powerful and fascinating writer with a brilliant imagination…Clive Barker is an outstanding storyteller”
J G BALLARD

Anyone buying the book in paperback should check that it contains both parts of the Imajica.The book has been published in two parts in the past.
The book is excellent but buy it in paperback in an edition with at least eleven hundred pages.
Do yourself a favour and lose yourself in this book.......you will not be able to put it down.
What, then, could my criticism be? Well, when I say I loved this book at the beginning, I mean the first five hundred pages or so. Why oh why did the author feel the need to ramble on for so long? I bought the Kindle edition, but a bit of research informed me that the paperback weighs in at a mighty 1192 pages. By the end I was skim reading, just to get the wretched book over and done with. There is no need for it to be so long. The story could be just as detailed in a far more compact book, and would have been a lot better for it. Did the author not have an editor? Was the editor so wet behind the ears that he didn't realise that a book that is too long leads to a bored and dissatisfied reader? Did the book not get proof read? The amount of punctuation errors I found seriously detracted from my enjoyment. Before you condemn me as a grammar purist, it is very difficult to understand dialogue that is all packed into one paragraph, and is missing so many speech marks it's nigh on impossible to discern which character is speaking. It's also confusing when names are regularly preceded by a full stop, when a comma would have been correct. I don't know if these errors occur in the paperback version, but they were abundant in my Kindle version, particularly towards the end. Perhaps the proof reader got as bored as I did!
