Format: Hardcover
I just received my copy of this volume, in which I have an essay. Gary William Crawford, a long-time scholar of Campbell's work, has put together a highly rewarding collection of essays on the work of Ramsey Campbell, who for for decades has been one of the world's leading horror writers.

Richard Bleiler provides an overview of Campbell's oeuvre, while other essays focus on single stories (Joel Lane - sadly recently deceased) or particular novels (Anthony J.
