Format: Paperback
THE HOUSE ON NAZARETH HILL by Ramsey Campbell The man who is rightly respected as one of the greatest ever writers in the field of supernatural fiction has delivered here a masterpiece, one that I think nudges even the brilliant MIDNIGHT SUN into second on my list of Ramsey's best.
Amy Priestley is returning from church with her parents when they pass the burnt out shell of the "Spider House" on Nazareth Hill. Amy has always been afraid of this building and in an attempt to overcome her fears Oswald, her father, lifts her to a window to see inside. Something unspeakable looms from the dark and she nearly topples in fright from her father's grip. Amy vows never to return.
Ten years later, 16 year old Amy and her now widowed father move into Nazarill, the luxury flats that have been created from the ruins of the "Spider House". Amy has, she thinks, outgrown her fears and is happy to have a place that many in Partington might envy.
Soon though, things start to go wrong. A photographer dies whilst developing a shot of the residents, and the negative contains an image of a ghostly figure supplementary to the original group. One night Oswald stumbles into what he thinks is a huge spider hanging from an oak tree off the driveway. It is actually a mutilated cat. The oak is chopped down and discovered in the roots of the tree is an old Bible with some curious scribblings in the margins. "Must survive until they take me from this place" reads one ominous line. Amy begins to suspect some awful past buried in Nazarill's history. A past, as the book jacket says, that won't stay buried.
And this is the heart of the novel. Ramsey has created a haunted house story that towers above most of the other work in this sub-genre.

HASH(0x930485b8) out of 5 stars A chilling read 2 Sept. 2005
By Leon Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I thought this book was great. Ramsey Campbell is one of the best horror writers with a very original unusual way of expressing his words on the written page. His characters seem to view the world as a very strange and sinister place indeed. This is one of his best along with his other novel Incarnate. It centres around the claustrauphobic world of a teenage girl who moves into a building that was previously a mental hospital and is very creepy indeed. She is rebellious and headstrong and often clashes with her father. Everything in her world is unsure and she feels very alienated. She feels strongly the building is evil and she's not the only one. A great novel full of suspence and creepy atmosphere. Well worth reading
