Editorial Reviews


"This horror story is beautifully written, populated with well-realized characters and pervaded by an increasingly chilling atmosphere of dread and anxiety." (Publishers Weekly )

"In every respect, Campbell's best." (Kirkus Reviews )

“Britain’s most respected living horror writer” (Oxford Companion to English Literature )

“Easily the best horror writer working in Britain today” (Time Out )

“Britain’s leading horror writer... His novels have been getting better and better” (City Limits )

“One of Britain’s most accomplished horror writers” (Oxford Star )

“The John Le Carre of horror fiction” (Bookshelf, Radio 4 )

“One of the best real horror writers at work today” (Interzone )

“The greatest living exponent of the British weird fiction tradition” (The Penguin Encyclopaedia of Horror and the Supernatural )

“England’s contemporary king of the horror genre” (Atlanta Constitution )

“One of the few real writers in our field... In some ways Ramsey Campbell is the best of us all” (Peter Straub )

“Ramsey Campbell has a talent for terror – he knows how to give you nightmares while you’re still awake... Only a few writers can lay claim to such a level of consummate craftsmanship” (Robert Bloch )

“Campbell writes the most terrifying horror tales of anyone now alive” (Twilight Zone Magazine )

“He is unsurpassed in the subtle manipulation of mood... You forget you’re just reading a story” (Publishers Weekly )

“One of the world’s finest exponents of the classic British ghost story” (Sounds )

“Britain’s greatest living horror writer” (Alan Moore )

“For sheer ability to compose disturbing, evocative prose, he is unmatched in the horror/fantasy field... He turns the traditional horror novel inside out, and makes it work brilliantly” (Fangoria )

“Britain’s leading horror novelist” (New Statesman )

“Campbell writes the most disturbing horror fiction around” (Today )

“Ramsey Campbell is better than all the rest of us put together” (Dennis Etchison )

“Ramsey Campbell is the best horror writer alive, period” (Thomas Tessier )

“A horror writer in the classic mould... Britain’s premier contemporary exponent of the art of scaring you out of your skin” (Q Magazine )

“The undisputed master of the psychological horror novel” (Robert Holdstock )

“Perhaps the most important living writer in the horror fiction field” (David Hartwell )

“Ramsey Campbell’s work is tremendous” (Jonathan Ross )

“Campbell is a rightful tenant of M. R. James country, the genuine badlands of the human psyche” (Norman Shrapnel in the Guardian )

“One of the world’s finest exponents of the classic British ghost story... His writing explores the potential for fear in the mundane, the barely heard footsteps, the shadow flitting past at the edge of one’s sight” (Daily Telegraph )

“Britain’s greatest horror writer... Realistic, subtle and arcane” (Waterstones Guide to Books )

“Ramsey Campbell is the nearest thing we have to an heir to M. R. James” (Times )

“Campbell is literate in a field which has attracted too many comic-book intellects, cool in a field where too many writers – myself included – tend toward panting melodrama... Good horror writers are quite rare, and Campbell is better than just good” (Stephen King )

“Easily the finest practising British horror novelist and the one whose work can most wholeheartedly be recommended to those who dislike the genre... His misclassification as a genre writer obscures his status as the finest magic realist Britain possesses this side of J. G. Ballard” (Daily Telegraph )

“The most sophisticated and highly regarded of British horror writers” (Financial Times )

“He writes of our deepest fears in a precise, clear prose that somehow manages to be beautiful and terrifying at the same time. He is a powerful, original writer, and you owe it to yourself to make his acquaintance” (Washington Post )

“The foremost stylist and innovator in British horror fiction” (The Scream Factory )

“There are a few writers who are special. They make the world in their books; or rather, they open a window or a door or a magic casement, and they show you the world in which they live. Ramsey Campbell, for example, writes stories that, read in quantity, will re-form your world into a grey and ominous place in which strange shapes flicker at the corner of your eyes, and a patch of smoke or a blown plastic shopping bag takes on some kind of ghastly significance.” (Neil Gaiman )

“One of the century’s great literary exponents of the gothic and horrific” (Guardian )

Ramsey Campbell (born 4 January 1946 in Liverpool) is an English horror fiction writer, editor and critic who has been writing for well over fifty years. Two of his novels have been filmed, both for non-English-speaking markets.

Since he first came to prominence in the mid-1960s, critics have cited Campbell as one of the leading writers in his field: T. E. D. Klein has written that "Campbell reigns supreme in the field today", and Robert Hadji has described him as "perhaps the finest living exponent of the British weird fiction tradition", while S. T. Joshi stated, "future generations will regard him as the leading horror writer of our generation, every bit the equal of Lovecraft or Blackwood."
