Ράμσι Κάμπελ – Ramsey Campbell

Ξένοι λογοτέχνες


Το πρόσωπο που πρέπει να πεθάνει
The Face That Must Die
Ένας ψυχοπαθής δολοφόνος… Μια σειρά από αποτρόπαιες δολοφονίες… Άνθρωποι αθώοι, παγιδευμένοι σε μια κούρσα ανάμεσα στον χρόνο και στον θάνατο…
Η αφήγηση επίμονα κάνει τον αναγνώστη να νιώθει δύσκολα· βυθίζεται στην ψυχή του δολοφόνου και συνεπαίρνεται από τον κύκλο μανίας και μεγαλείου όπου οδηγείται. Κάθε μικρή λεπτομέρεια, κάθε σφήνα διαλόγου, κάθε παρομοίωση οδηγεί στην κλιμακούμενη απειλή ότι όλη η κανονικότητα είναι έτοιμη να καταρρεύσει.
Ο Ramsey Campbell έχει κερδίσει περισσότερα βραβεία από οποιονδήποτε άλλον συγγραφέα τρόμου, μεταξύ των οποίων το Βραβείο Grand Master του Παγκόσμιου Συμβουλίου Τρόμου (World Horror Convention) και το Lifetime Achievement Award της Ένωσης Συγγραφέων Τρόμου (Horror Writers Association), καθώς και πολλά World Fantasy Awards.
Να θυμάσαι μόνο ότι ποτέ δεν είμαι πολύ μακριά. Θα εκπλαγείς άμα δεις πόσο κοντά σου είμαι!
“Ένα από τα βαρύτερα μυθιστορήματα τρόμου που έχουν γραφτεί ποτέ”. (Απαγορευμένος Πλανήτης)
“Οι μελλοντικές γενιές θα τον θεωρούν ως τον κορυφαίο συγγραφέα τρόμου της γενιάς μας, τοποθετώντας τον σε ίδιο βάθρο με τον Lovecraft ή τον Blackwood”. (S.T. Joshi)
“Ο Campbell είναι ο απόλυτος μονάρχης στο είδος σήμερα”. (T.E.D. Klein)

Κραυγή από την κόλαση
The Nameless
Ένα τηλεφώνημα ήταν αρκετό για να ξυπνήσει τον εφιάλτη της Μπάρμπαρα Γουό. Πως ήταν δυνατόν να είναι στην άλλη άκρη της γραμμής η κόρη της, αφού είχε δολοφονηθεί πριν χρόνια και είχε βρεθεί πυροβολημένη εξ επαφής στο κεφάλι; Κι αν η Άντζελα ήταν ζωντανή, που βρισκόταν τώρα; Ποιος την είχε υπό τον έλεγχό του; Και ποιος μπορεί να βοηθήσει την ίδια την Μπάρμπαρα, όταν η αναζήτησή της για την Άντζελα την οδηγεί στον απάνθρωπο κόσμο εκείνων που έχουν απαρνηθεί το όνομά τους; Σε έναν κόσμο γεμάτο φριχτά βασανιστήρια, κλειδωμένες πόρτες, ανατριχιαστικές τελετές και κραυγές που σβήνουν στο σκοτάδι. Κραυγές από την Κόλαση. ..
