5.0 out of 5 stars ''Ramsey Campbell is Britain's Stephen King!''
Modern horror wouldn't be the same without Ramsey Campbell. He has proofed himself time and time again he can write horror stories like The Nameless, The Doll Who Ate His Mother, The Grin of the Dark and now The Last Revelation of Gla'aki. These stories and many more will be remembered for decades to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ramsey Campbell - interesting ideas
Read the novella. Had to trudge through it as it was repetition ad infinitum. Sadly the story was not one that came to any real conclusion. Left me cold and wondering why I had read the reviews and taken the book seriously. Absolutely no ending to this that I can discern. Why didn't this fool Leonard Fairman just leave with the books he had? Why did he allow himself...

5.0 out of 5 stars ''Ramsey Campbell is Britain's Stephen King!'', 22 Sep 2013
This review is from: The Last Revelation of Gla'aki (Hardcover)
Modern horror wouldn't be the same without Ramsey Campbell. He has proofed himself time and time again he can write horror stories like The Nameless, The Doll Who Ate His Mother, The Grin of the Dark and now The Last Revelation of Gla'aki. These stories and many more will be remembered for decades to come.

One of the most interesting things about Ramsey is his strong influence of H.P. Lovecraft. When Ramsey was 7 years old he bought a book collection of Lovecraft's work from a second hand bookstore in his hometown of Liverpool, and from the moment he opened the pages his life changed forever. Ever since he released his first horror novel The Inhabitants of the Lake back in 1964, he continues to scare the daylight out of his fans all over the world.

This review is from: The Last Revelation of Gla'aki (Hardcover)
It goes without saying that a Ramsey Campbell book is great. But it is a special treat when the author returns for a moment to his Lovecraftian roots, as he does here. (I was on board way back when his only book was The Inhabitant of the Lake, which I love, love, love!). The cover art is stunning, too! Any fan of modern horror in general, or of Campbell in particular, and who isn't?, will rush to obtain this book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ramsey Campbell - interesting ideas, 11 April 2014

This review is from: The Last Revelation of Gla'aki (Hardcover)
Read the novella. Had to trudge through it as it was repetition ad infinitum. Sadly the story was not one that came to any real conclusion. Left me cold and wondering why I had read the reviews and taken the book seriously. Absolutely no ending to this that I can discern. Why didn't this fool Leonard Fairman just leave with the books he had? Why did he allow himself to be treated so casually by these monsters posing as people? Truly a bizarre and pointless read.

Campbell has skill in repeating himself over and over. Gotta give him that. Only positive spin I can put on this actually.
