    1. Ramsey Campbell is a British writer considered by a number of critics to be one of the great masters of horror fiction T E D Klein has written that Campbell reigns supreme in the field today, while S T Joshi has said that future generations will regard him as the leading horror writer of our generation, every bit the equal of Lovecraft or Blackwood.

    2. FEBRUARY 18 Why We Do It by Darrell Schweitzer Short 3 pages tale about a young man returning to outback with his girlfriend where things turn out to be quite occult And pity the girl This story doesn t quite live up to the excellent goal of the editors, Kevin Ross Keith Herber who wrote Ramsey Campbell as editor author for this book He s a contributor , but still manages to stay on the right side of clich s, in my opinion.FEBRUARY 22 Salt Air by Mike Minnis A very nice Kingsport story with a li [...]

    3. When one looks at many of the hundreds of volumes of Lovecraftian fiction that have been published, it s difficult to avoid the conclusion that many of the lesser Mythos stories were slapped together merely to serve as a stage for the sudden appearance of one of those familiar tentacled monsters, with stock characters and familiar locales such as Innsmouth or Dunwich hastily sketched out with just enough detail to prod you into reading on to the predictable conclusion Typically, the effective c [...]

    4. Plenty has been said about this volume, and I don t want to ape it I ve read Lovecraftian horror for 30 years and I can honestly say this book is a rare gem It deserves the praise it has been given If you are a fan of the genre you deserve to read it.

    5. Dead But Dreaming was originally released in 2002 from Dark Tales Publication There was an initial print run of 75 copies and then either sales were slow or the publisher tanked I may have gotten the very last copy sold at the list price back in 2004 Until now, collectors have been paying exorbitant prices for used copies, up to 300 Now Miskatonic River Press has released a new edition of this marvelous anthology I ll leave it to someone else to figure out what this might do to the value of the [...]

    6. I m not sure why it s listed as by Ramsey Campbell it s an anthology, he s one of the authors Keith Herber originally published this in 2002, with Kevin Ross editing This edition has corrections, revisions and author bios.The general theme is epiphany various people have horrific revelations related to the Cthulhu Mythos in some way But these aren t the usual formulaic pastiches by the same contingent of authors There are a mix of established and at the time new authors, and actual variation in [...]

    7. This is billed as in the Lovecraft tradition And it is not that there is some horrifying thing in the story It is that there is a realization at the end that the horrifying thing has not ended, regardless of what happened in the plot The stories are well written and draw you in the story so that not only do you realize what is continuing, you are filling out what is happening in your own imagination Well done.

    8. I bought this after having read the reviews here on I ve been reading Lovecraftian horror for 40 years, have scores of Arkham House and Fedogan Bremer titles, so I feel fairly well qualified when I say that this is a strictly mediocre collection of stories And it is most assuredly NOT written by Ramsey Campbell He contributes one story, which is, as usual, excellent but the rest are not in the least memorable.

    9. Great collection of stories that offer a new take on Lovecraft s nihilistic vision The editors state that they were looking for stories that shared the Old Man s view of cosmic insignificance and for the most part their selections hit the mark A couple of the stories are silly but some very very good Highly recommended for the Lovecraft fan, even the purist.

    10. An uncommonly good Cthulhu Mythos anthology Of the ones I ve read so far about 2 3 of them , The Aklo, Salt Air, Final Draft, and Through the Cracks were particularly good.
