Book Description


See all titles by Ramsey Campbell.

"Britain's answer to Stephen King and then some," says the Dallas Morning News of this extraordinary writer, whose powerful, disturbing novels illuminate everyday reality in frightening and unforgettable ways.
In Ancient Times, Campbell focuses his nightmarish vision on a long-forgotten 1930's Boris Karloff/Bela Lugosi film, Tower of Fear.  For reasons blurred by history, powerful forces suppressed the film and destroyed the prints.  Nobody now living had seen the finished film until film reasearcher Graham Nolan's two-year search unearthed the sole surviving print.
Graham invites colleague Sandy Allan, a film editor at London's Metroopolitan Tevelision, to view Tower of Fear, but before the screening, the film disappears and the cycle of death begins.
This is a novel rich in images--of the land, of the bread of life, of blood.  We watch in terror as Sandy gradually uncovers the shocking truth of the psychic violence that a family inflicts on itself and others.  And we are drawn ever forward with Sandy as she perceives the inexorable power of a thirsty earth, a thirst that must be quenched..  Rejecting her last chance to retreat, Sandy must overcome a terrible evil if she is to surive to tell her story.
