      Following the success of Incarnations comes Clive Barker's second collection of playsthree very different dramas that share the universal themes of transformation and redemption. Like the books and films that have made his name familiar worldwide, their comedy is always tinged with darkness, their tragedy is never that far from some half-glimpsed wonderment.

    Crazyface follows the life of a great fool whose adventures in Europe's Dark Ages mingle equal measures of comedy, tragedy, and miracles. The drama continues in Paradise Street as an extraordinary group of time-travelers transform Clive Barker's hometown of Liverpool. Transformation is again the theme in Subtle Bodies. Quiddity, the sea of dreams which will weave its own powerful enchantment in Barker's later novels, transforms a hotel into a sinking cruise ship, taking its dreaming passengers into new depths of panic and revelation.

    Even readers already familiar with Barker's many wondrous worlds will discover a host of surprises within these pages.
