Editorial Reviews


"Somebody’s Voice was a quality thriller and shows the versatility and range of one of the giants of the horror world." -- Ginger Nuts of Horror

Somebody’s Voice is a harrowing read, a well-crafted novel about the writing process and the oddballs who pursue it as a career, about the fragile nature of truth, about identity, memory, and voice. It’s a terrific addition to Campbell’s list of accomplishments." -- Considering Stories

"I doubt I’ve read a more convincing account of incipient paranoia, the way an underlying issue is gradually exposed by stressful events involving livelihood and interpersonal attachments." -- Gary Fry

“Highly recommended for Campbell's fans and anyone who is not afraid to face the
dark side of humanity in an attempt to open minds.” -- A Reviewer Darkly

“Britain’s most respected living horror writer”

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

“Easily the best horror writer working in Britain today.”

“Good horror writers are quite rare, and Campbell is better than just good” -- Stephen King

“The John Le Carre of horror fiction”

“Britain’s greatest living horror writer”

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

“Britain’s leading horror novelist.”

“An absolute master of modern horror. And a damn fine writer at that” -- Guillermo del Toro

“I would say that only five writers have written serious novels which incorporate themes of fantasy or the inexplicable and still qualify as literature: T. E. D. Klein, Peter Straub, Richard Adams, Jonathan Carroll and Ramsey Campbell." -- Stephen King

“The most sophisticated and highly regarded of British horror writers”

“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”

“One of the few who can scare and disturb as well as make me laugh out loud. His humour is very black but very funny, and that’s a rare gift to have” -- Mark Morris

“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

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

“The undisputed master of the psychological horror novel”

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

“Ramsey Campbell’s work is tremendous” -- Jonathan Ross

“The Grand Master of British horror... the greatest living writer of horror fiction”

“In Campbell’s hands words take on a life of their own, creating images that stay with you, feelings that prey on you, and people you hope never ever to meet”

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

“The finest writer now working in the horror field”

About the Author

Ramsey Campbell was born in Liverpool in 1946 and still lives on Merseyside. The Oxford Companion to English Literature describes him as “Britain’s most respected living horror writer”. He has been given more awards than any other writer in the field, including the Grand Master Award of the World Horror Convention, the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Horror Writers Association, the Living Legend Award of the International Horror Guild and the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award.

In 2015 he was made an Honorary Fellow of Liverpool John Moores University for outstanding services to literature. Among his novels are
The Face That Must Die, Incarnate, Midnight Sun, The Count of Eleven, Silent Children, The Darkest Part of the Woods, The Overnight, Secret Story, The Grin of the Dark, Thieving Fear, Creatures of the Pool, The Seven Days of Cain, Ghosts Know, The Kind Folk, Think Yourself Lucky and Thirteen Days by Sunset Beach. Needing Ghosts, The Last Revelation of Gla’aki, The Pretence and The Booking are novellas. His collections include Waking Nightmares, Alone with the Horrors, Ghosts and Grisly Things, Told by the Dead, Just Behind You and Holes for Faces, and his non-fiction is collected as Ramsey Campbell, Probably. Limericks of the Alarming and Phantasmal are what they sound like.

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."

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best psychologically creepy novels
Reviewed in the United States on August 1, 2021
“Somebody’s voice” is so twisted that it left me speechless. I feel it’s one of the best psychologically creepy novels I have read this year.

I have read quite a few of the author’s previous famous works, where he dabbles into the paranormal and supernatural. This book is not that, so you will be disappointed if you expect a gory horror novel. This book, however, is psychologically creepy and frightening and relates more to the horrors of what the human mind can perceive. However, this book is not for everyone. It has themes of child abuse, and I don’t think it would be everyone’s cup of tea.

The author does relate his classic style of writing, where he sets the pace in a slow-burn fashion. We get two storylines, one of Alex, who is ghostwriting a memoir for Carl, and Carla (Carl’s childhood), who talks about the horrors of her childhood. As the story progresses, you slowly start to see both the storyline merge and blur the entire cast of characters. I honestly loved the second half of the book because you don’t know what is happening or who to trust. Some highlights of the book were the catechism incident at the restaurant and when the police make an arrest. This book is probably one of the few where the plot completely engrossed me more than the characters (although there were characters like Randal who creeped me out).

Overall, I have to say that this book surpassed my expectations and made me appreciate the author on a grander level. “Somebody’s Voice” is one of those stories people will love or despise, and I loved reading it.
