Summary (From the publisher):

Ramsey Campbell is the world's most honored living horror writer. He has won four World Fantasy Awards, nine British Fantasy Awards, three Bram Stoker Awards, and numerous awards, including the Horror Writers' Association's Lifetime Achievement Award, for his lifetime body of work. That body of work began to appear in 1961. Thirty years later, Campbell compiled Alone with the Horrors, a selection of the best of his short fiction to that point. The collection is crowned with a lengthy Preface wherein Campbell traces his early publication history and gives his personal account of the creation of the stories and his assessment of their flaws and achievements. For Tor's publication, Campbell has updated that Pre-face and added a story. Alone with the Horrors is a wonderful, hair-raising overview of a master writer's career.
