Bram Stoker Award winner 1993, World Fantasy Award winner 1994.
Ramsey Campbell is perhaps the world's most honored author of horror fiction. He has won four World Fantasy Awards, ten British Fantasy Awards, three Bram Stoker Awards, and the Horror Writers' Association's Lifetime Achievement Award.
Three decades into his career, Campbell paused to review his body of short fiction and selected the stories that were, to his mind, the very best of his works. Alone With the Horrors collects nearly forty tales from the first thirty years of Campbell's writing, including several award-winners.
Campbell crowns the book with a length preface – revised for this edition – which traces his early publication history, discusses his youthful correspondence with August Derleth, and illuminates the influence of H. P. Lovecraft on his work.
Alone With the Horrors provides readers with a close look at a powerful writer's development of his craft.

Since Ramsey Campbell first came to prominence in the mid-1960s, critics have cited Campbell as one of the leading writers in his field: T. E. D. Klein has written that "Campbell reigns supreme in the field today", while S. T. Joshi stated, "future generations will regard him as the leading horror writer of our generation, every bit the equal of Lovecraft or Blackwood."
