Ramsey Campbell's novels have justly won him acclaim as one of the best writers of the age. A three-time winner of the World Fantasy Award and an eight-time winner of the British Fantasy Award, his writing has struck a chord with readers worldwide.

But throughout his career he has also written insightful, terrifying, and disturbing short fiction. Ghosts & Grisly Things is a collection of the best of Campbell's short works from the past two decades. This book also features the story "Ra*e" which appears here for the first time anywhere.


“Showcase[s] Campbell's gift for a sense of understated, slowly growing supernatural menace. . . . Ghosts and Grisly Things is grim, grown-up horror.” —The Washington Post

“Campbell's short stories continue to shape and expand the vocabulary of horror fiction. This collection . . . conjures nightmares from the most unlikely raw material.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This is Campbell at his best.” —Kirkus Reviews
