Ramsey Campbell – Uncanny Banquet

Posted by demonik on September 1, 2007

Ramsey Campbell (ed.) – Uncanny Banquet (Warner, 1993: Little Brown, 1992)

Introduction – Ramsey Campbell

Russell Kirk – Behind The Stumps
Dorothy K. Haynes – A Horizon Of Obelisks
Alison Prince – The Loony
Henry Normanby – The First-Nighter
Fritz Leiber – The Hill And The Hole
Robert Aickman – Ravissante
Donald Wandrei – The Lady In Gray
Walter de la Mare – A Mote
Ramsey Campbell – McGonagall In The Head
Adrian Ross – The Hole Of The Pit

“This is a book for people who love tales of the supernatural rather than of gross gruesomeness, or who would like to find out if they do” writes RC in his – too brief – introduction, so it will be interesting to see how it goes down with someone who is partial to both. It’s certainly an extremely eclectic selection. The Loony is from a ‘childrens’ book (Mary Danby’s Nightmares 2, Armada, 1984), The Hole Of The Pit is a ‘lost’, reputedly Jamesian novel first published in 1914, the Wandrei story is from Weird Tales and Campbell’s own effort is bang up to date.
