      I love Clive Barker, and he's tied as my second favorite author. The books I've read by him are Imajica, Weaveworld, The Great and Secret Show, Everville, Mister B. Gone, and Cabal. I'd highly recommend any of these as a starting place, except Mister B. Gone which I felt wasn't very good at all, or Everville, since it's the sequel to The Great.
