Campbell has been scaring our socks of for fifty years now and Just Behind you, published by PS Publishing in two supremely gorgeous states contains stories that "...range from the supernatural to paranoid psychological terror, from nightmare comedy to eerie pathos. The mobile phone becomes a source of unease, and so does a night in a modern hotel. We're introduced to a Liverpool pub with a welcome as unnerving as it's irresistible, and a bookshop no booklover would want to leave. An urban nature reserve harbours the weirdly unnatural, and a seaside lake attracts an unusual species of visitor. An author is overcome by more than words, and a lecturer by more than silence. A boy finds that his bed is no hiding place from the deceased, and a school visit revives more and worse than memories. Peter Straub once wrote "The world Ramsey Campbell takes for granted is the world of our darkest nightmares." Here are several years' worth of them, and you may find that they look like your world too."
