NEW, in shrink-wrap. PS Publishing, UK, July 2021. Slipcased Hardcover COLLECTION of ESSAYS limited to 200 signed and numbered copies. ABOUT THE BOOK Ramsey Campbell, Certainly collects the crop of the author's columns and essays from the last twenty years. Censorship is confronted, whether in Charles Platt's notorious novel or a disciplinary memoir. Standards of horror are upheld, and the uncanny is acclaimed. Fun is had with uproarious films, and the mating of comedy and horror is celebrated. A novel favoured by discussion groups is skewered, and a supposed satire of horror is satirised. M. R. James is defended against accusations of plagiarism, and the importance of his style is demonstrated. Lovecraft's prose is appreciated at length, as are several of his greatest tales. Other builders of the great tradition are discussed - Machen, Blackwood, Hodgson - and inspired toilers in the pulps are given their considerable due - Leiber, Wellman, St Clair. Nor are living talents left out: you'll find Niveau, Lansdale, Atkins, Bestwick and many another. Horror comics are examined and enjoyed, and so is the macabre in music. The most substantial pieces let the author's late parents speak for themselves through their correspondence, in which August Derleth plays a part, and present a history of the Liverpool Science Fiction Group with copious excerpts from the minutes of their fannish meetings. Does this book have something for everyone? Look for yourself!
