Select Bibliography

An extension of one of Britain’s finest small press publications, this collection traces the influence of James upon his contemporaries and later authors, right through to present day masters like Ramsey Campbell. There’s little by way of gore and violence, nor are too many crabs known to rampage through these crypts and Cathedrals. What these stories have to offer is an undeniable shuddersome quality courtesy of the many mouldering revenants who show themselves to the usual array of hapless antiquarians.
