Scared Stiff by Ramsey Campbell
Book DescriptionRamsey Campbell has won four World Fantasy Awards, ten British Fantasy Awards, and the Horror Writers' Association's Lifetime Achievement Award. Publishers Weekly calls Campbell a horror writer's horror writer, adding, His control of mood and atmosphere is unsurpassed. The Cleveland Plain Dealer says his horror fiction is of consistently high quality, and The Washington Post praises Campbell for continuing to break new ground, advancing the style and thematic content of horror fiction far beyond the works of his contemporaries. The original publication of Scared Stiff almost created the sub-genre of erotic horror. Never had sex and death been so mesmerizingly entwined. Clive Barker, in his Introduction, says, One of the delightfully unsettling things about these tales is the way Ramsey's brooding, utterly unique vision renders an act so familiar to us all so fretful, so strange, so chilling. Sex . . . is the perfect stuff for the horror writer, and there can be few artists working in the genre as capable of analyzing and dramatizing [this] as Campbell. For this edition, Campbell has added three new stories which have never before appeared in book form.
