• Potential Severn Valley 1973• The End of a Summer's Day 1973• At First Sight 1973• The Franklyn Paragraphs Severn. This collection of horror stories has its own singular style and sense of atmosphere Each story is darkly enchanting and finely written Some stories are stronger and fully realized than others though all are cloaked in a sense of portentousness Denouements are not always revealed as solid events but are hinted at through occurrences with suggestible endings The author creates environments that can be seen in detail by the mind s eye and are as tactile as the book we hold in our hands Religious beliefs are challenged by a hostile universe and nature is alluring in its menace Psychological themes become hallucinatory as memory chases time in hallucinatory ripples I felt myself in other worlds while between the covers of this collection and will be sure to seek out much of Ramsey Campbell s work

I ve been dipping into this book since April so I really took my time finishing it Returning to this book was always a treat however and rarely did I find a story here I didn t likeCampbell got away from the Lovecraftian influence in this book and really wrote some insidious menacing stories which are subtle and get under the skinPotential is a very weird story the end didn t make complete sense to me howeverThe End of a Summer s Day didn t exactly scare me the first time I read it however it took some time to germinate A few days later laying in bed thinking about it I know I lost some sleep over that oneAt First Sight is effectively scary at many points but especially at the endThe Franklyn Paragraphs is a story I read in the Cold Print collection some time ago all I recall is it was well written Lovecraftian perhaps but not overly creepyThe Interloper isn t the best written story feels a bitrushed but it s definitely one of the ones that creeped me out the mostThe Sentinels has a good uiet creepiness about it atmospheric but not among his bestThe Guy is a nice weird tale creepy ending but not among the best in the collectionThe Old Horns has a nice pagan Machen esue feel to it creepy but doesn t always make a lot of senseThe Lost is one of the few stories I didn t care for at allThe Stocking has a good atmosphere and shocker ending but is another lesser taleThe Second Staircase is OK but another lesser story where the first half feels like filler for the second This one embodies Campbell s hallucinogenic feelConcussion is perhaps the best example of Campbells hallucinogenic stories it takes a riff on a familiar but non scary horrorsci fi theme of time slipsThe Enchanted Fruit hallucinogenic writing not among my favorites but it does have a good sense of urban anxiety and dreadMade in Goatswood is a story I read years ago in the Cold Print collection good Lovecraftian fare

    My first introduction to the work of Ramsey Campbell was I have to say uite a shock He's not going to be for everyone that's for sure What you have here are not coherent stories relayed in a conventional manner and the horror is not conventionally scary His stories are obliue and scary in subtle ways They seem to get cryptic as the collection progresses The number of stories I feel I fully got my head around were definit

    I'm absolutely shocked that this is a collection of Ramsey Campbell's stories For the life of me I could barely understand what was happening in any of them Mostly they consisted of people having banal conversations and somehow the reader is supposed to glean what's going on by reading between the lines Except
