    1. A collection of Campbell s short stories He s the master of dingy, claustrophobic horror these stories are peopled with petty, small individuals who get caught up in horrors they can t begin to understand, even though in most cases they ve brought them on themselves Often, the normal humans are almost as awful as the supernatural horrors haunting them I utterly enjoyed this collection, even though I felt vaguely like I needed a shower afterward.

    2. Ramsey Campbell, Ghosts and Grisly Things Tor, 1998 I sometimes wonder where books get their titles In this case, I have to lay the blame on some copy editor at Tor who hadn t even bothered reading the manuscript, or at best skimmed it a tad There s the odd ghost in this collection of stories, and a grisly thing or two, but anyone who s read Ramsey Campbell before should be well aware by now that the horror which Campbell makes his stock in trade has far less to do with such external fear induci [...]

    3. I ve never been much of a fan of short stories I mostly find them lacking and a little bit rushed, like a journey you ve barely started to enjoy ending abruptly and leaving you wanting for Thus, I start this review saying to myself that it may have been a bad idea for me to read the short story compilation Ghosts and Grisly Things from an author as legendary as Ramsey Campbell, without having read any of his novels, nor been acquainted with his writing style.To start off, Ramsey Campbell s writ [...]

    4. Rather than detailing carnage and grue, Ramsey Campbell writes the sort of horror stories that slowly suffocate you to death all the while convincing you that this is perfectly normal and reasonable and why on earth are you frightened The tales which make up Ghosts and Grisly Things span Campbell s career from the early 1970s to the mid 1990s A constant recurring theme is just how close the mundane, everyday world can exist to unimaginable terror when one considers how easily one may slip into n [...]

    5. Although I cannot fault the writing, the subject matter is highly unpleasant I am a horror fan, but this book of short stories is unrelenting in its nastiness It s mostly about mental illness delusions, hallucinations, paranoia with some supernatural elements thrown in It wears you down In part this might be because one story goes a long way after a half dozen, it becomes repetitious and nauseating After a few , it feels like an exercise in self torture The structure of each tale is always the s [...]

    6. This book was a bit difficult to get into, but I think this was due to cultural differences than actual the writing Even though most of Campbell s stories took place after 1975, some of the references were as foreign to me as reading Poe or some other century old horror novel Some things Campbell seems to focus on fog, loss of control, mental insanity I suppose for him, the sense of losing oneself to insanity is a lot horrible than anything that may be hiding in your closet or under your bed T [...]

    7. This is a wildly uneven collection of Campbell s shorter works While some stories shine many are abysmal Which is really unfortunate as I consider him an effective writer of the truly spooky short story normally This collection includes The Same in any LanguageGoing UnderThe AlternativeOut of the WoodsA Street was ChosenMcGonagall in the HeadThrough the WallsThis TimeThe SneeringBetween the FloorsWhere They LivedRoot CauseLooking OutThe Dead Must DieA Side of the SeaMissed ConnectionThe ChangeWe [...]

    8. This is a collection of short stories by Campbell Personally I didn t care for most of them These are the sort of story where it s all about the ending, and the endings were usually not satisfying.I suspect maybe Campbell s novels are better.
