Product description


"A horror writer in the classic mould... Britain's premier contemporary exponent of the art of scaring you out of your skin"--Fangoria

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

"Britain's greatest living horror writer"--Stephen King

"Britain's leading horror novelist."--Stephen King

"Britain's most respected living horror writer"--Adam Nevill

"Easily the best horror writer working in Britain today."--Adam Nevill

"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

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

"He is unsurpassed in the subtle manipulation of mood... You forget you're just reading a story"--Stephen King

"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"--Stephen King
