Campbell began writing Lovecraft-style “weird fiction” in the mid-1950s and has since written dozens of novels and hundreds of short stories, earning him more praise than nearly anyone else in the industry. He has published more than 25 novels and 15 collections in his literary career. Campbell is the lifetime president of the British Fantasy SocietyFrom Booklist:
While Liverpool is understandably best known for the Beatles, horror fans revere the British seaport as the hometown of Peter Atkins, Clive Barker, and, most prolific of them all, Ramsey Campbell. For his latest novel, Campbell explores some stranger features of Liverpool’s background in a pleasurably unsettling fusion of fiction and history. Gavin Meadows gives eclectic and occasionally tiresome—especially for disruptive American tourists—guided excursions highlighting Liverpool’s arcane, watery history. During a summer of heavy rains and a renaissance of city construction, Gavin’s research into Liverpool’s underground tunnels begins to reveal some surprising and unnerving information. An excavation for an office-building foundation, for instance, unearths coffins lined with lead, and postal workers become loath to use a tunnel linked to Lime Street Station. The most disturbing revelation, however, is that underground construction workers are hearing someone running ahead of them in the dark where no one or no thing should live. Another gem from one of the genre’s finest stylists. --Carl Hays
