Following hard on the heels of last month's twentieth anniversary of Hellraiser's release
October 2007 marks the 20th anniversary of the first publication of Clive Barker's Weaveworld.
To mark this august occasion, some promotional images from October 1987 which
acted as the lure for readers to this reworking of the fantasy genre and four different visual interpretations of the character of
Shadwell, together with a few links to various parts of the site...
