Ancient Images by Ramsey Campbell BLOG TOUR @ramseycampbell1 @RandomTTours #Giveaway #Prize @flametreepress #Competition


Tower of Fear is a lost horror film starring Karloff and Lugosi. 

A film historian who locates a copy dies while fleeing something that terrified him. 

His friend Sandy Allan vows to prove he found the film. 

She learns how haunted the production was and the survivors of it still are. 

It contains a secret about Redfield, a titled family that owns a favourite British food, Staff o’ Life. 

The Redfield land has uncanny guardians, and one follows Sandy home. 

To maintain its fertility Redfield demands a sacrifice, and a band of new age travellers is about to set up camp there…

One copy of Ancient Images by Ramsey Campbell

Ramsey Campbell (born 4 January 1946 in Liverpool) is an English horror fiction writer, editor and critic who has been writing for well over fifty years. Two of his novels have been filmed, both for non-English-speaking markets.

Since he first came to prominence in the mid-1960s, critics have cited Campbell as one of the leading writers in his field: T. E. D. Klein has written that "Campbell reigns supreme in the field today", and Robert Hadji has described him as "perhaps the finest living exponent of the British weird fiction tradition", while S. T. Joshi stated, "future generations will regard him as the leading horror writer of our generation, every bit the equal of Lovecraft or Blackwood."

Praise for Ramsey Campbell:

“An absolute master of modern horror. And a damn fine writer at that” (Guillermo del Toro)

“He is unsurpassed in the subtle manipulation of mood... You forget you’re just reading a story” (Publishers Weekly)

“He writes of our deepest fears in a precise, clear prose that somehow manages to be beautiful and terrifying at the same time. He is a powerful, original writer, and you owe it to yourself to make his acquaintance” (Washington Post)

“Britain’s most respected living horror writer” (Oxford Companion to English Literature)

“Easily the best horror writer working in Britain today” (Time Out)

“Britain’s leading horror writer... His novels have been getting better and better” (City Limits)

“One of Britain’s most accomplished horror writers” (Oxford Star)

“The John Le Carre of horror fiction” (Bookshelf, Radio 4) “

One of the best real horror writers at work today” (Interzone)

“The greatest living exponent of the British weird fiction tradition” (The Penguin Encyclopaedia of Horror and the Supernatural)

“Ramsey Campbell has succeeded more brilliantly than any other writer in bringing the supernatural tale up to date without sacrificing the literary standards that early masters made an indelible part of the tradition” (Jack Sullivan, editor of the Penguin encyclopaedia)
