‘Britain’s most respected living horror writer’ -Oxford Companion to English Literature, Ramsey Campbell states ‘I think there’s nothing at all wrong with art that causes us to feel, but I maintain that horror fiction can address the intellect as well. I don’t want to scare people out of their wits; I’d rather scare them in. The field has an honourable heritage that’s worth preserving and emulating and extending. For a heartening amount of evidence that plenty of writers are worthy of it, look to Ellen Datlow’s annual survey and Steve Jones’-Best New Horror.
Nebula and World Fantasy Award winning novelist and short story writer, Charles Lewis Grant specialized in what he called dark fantasy and quiet horror. "...I am not merely envious of his talents, I am in awe of them. Charles L. Grant is one of the masters."– Jim Moore
