The Way of the Worm

release date: Mar 22, 2022
The Way of the Worm
The third and final novel in Ramsey Campbell''s triumphant Lovecraftian trilogy, The Three Births of Daoloth, where time travel, monstrous evil and the alien apocalypse combine to create a stunning conclusion for streaming TV lovers and suspense readers alike. "With The Way of the Worm, Campbell’s cosmic trilogy comes to a triumphant conclusion." — S.T. Joshi Book 3 in the Three Births of Daoloth trilogy. The present day, or something very like it. Dominic Sheldrake has retired from lecturing and lives on his own. His son Toby is married with a small daughter. The occultist Noble family are more active than ever. Their cult now openly operates as the Church of the Eternal Three, and has spread worldwide. The local branch occupies the top floors of Starview Tower, a Liverpool waterfront skyscraper. To Dominic’s dismay, Toby and his wife Claudine are deeply involved in it, and he suspects they are involving their small daughter Macy too. Dominic lets his son persuade him to attend a meeting of the church, where he encounters all three generations of the Nobles. Although Christian Noble is almost a century old, he’s more vigorous than ever – inhumanly so. The family takes turns to preach an apocalyptic sermon that hints at dark secrets masked by the Bible and at the future that lies in wait. In a bid to investigate further Dominic undergoes the rite the church offers its members, which confers the ability to travel psychically through time. Before he’s able to flee back to the present he has a vision of the monstrous fate that’s in store for the world. Dominic discovers a secret he’s sure the Nobles won’t want to be made public. Although he has retired from the police, Jim helps him establish the truth, and Roberta publishes it on her online blog. It’s the subject of a court case, the results of which seem to defeat the Nobles, only for them to return in a dreadfully transformed shape. Now Dominic and his friends are at their mercy, and is there anywhere in the world to hide? Even if they manage somehow to deal with the Nobles, there may be no escaping or preventing the alien apocalypse that all the events of the trilogy have been bringing ever closer...

The New Abject

release date: Oct 29, 2020
The New Abject
SOMETHING HAS FALLEN AWAY. We have lost a part of ourselves, our history, what we once were. That something, when we encounter it again, look it straight in the eyes, disgusts us, makes us retch. This is the horror of the abject. Following the success of Comma’s award-winning New Uncanny anthology, The New Abject invites leading authors to respond to two parallel theories of the abject – Julia Kristeva’s theory of the psychoanalytic, intimate abject, and Georges Bataille’s societal equivalent – with visceral stories of modern unease. As we become ever-more isolated by social media bubbles, or the demands for social distancing, our moral gag-reflex is increasingly sensitised, and our ability to tolerate difference, or ‘the other’, atrophies. Like all good horror writing, these stories remind us that exposure to what unsettles us, even in small doses, is always better than pretending it doesn’t exist. After all, we can never be wholly free of that which belongs to us.

The BLACK STONE. Stories for Lovecraftian Summonings

release date: Mar 02, 2021
The BLACK STONE. Stories for Lovecraftian Summonings
Stories by:Ramsey Campbell, Brian M Sammons, Glynn Owen Barrass, Lucy A. Snyder, E.A. Black, Chris Kelso, Andrew Coulthard, Stephen Mark Rainey, Kevin Lewis, Richard A. Scott, Russell Smeaton, John Buja, Made in DNA, David Agranoff, Pete Rawlik, Brian C. Short, Michael Housel, John Chadwick, David Voyles, Konstantine Paradias, Edward Morris, Parry Milton, Phil Breach, Garrett Cook, Andrew Freudenberg, Sarah Walker. The twenty-seven writers whose works appear here mine the rich seams that Lovecraft''s original vision created. However, lest one imagine that this implies that they merely slavishly follow in his footsteps, hewing to well-worn paths with rigid and blinkered preconceptions, think again. It has been nearly 85 years since the Providence, Rhode Island scholar''s death and, just as in the real world we have seen social and technological evolution in those intervening years, the matter of the Lovecraftian tale has itself evolved and expanded. A main thesis originally propounded by HPL, that of the existence of uncaring entities beyond our understanding who neither care about nor acknowledge our being part of the physical universe, still weaves its threads through many of the stories published here, and most of those remain unnamed and out of focus, elusive to both mind and physical senses. This approach is a logical progression - as alluded to above the universe is far vaster and more hostile than was ever imagined in the early decades of the 20th century. Just how do we even begin to delineate the possible monstrosities that might inhabit the corners of the infinity we call space? The tales of Lovecraft touched on primal fears of the dark unknown, with great effect, and now, nearly a century on, the spirit of the Lovecraftian tale is still with us, courtesy of a group of literary explorers willing to forge through the dark matter of our hostile home and write of their experiences and travails in the lightless places. These 27 epistles of horror and weirdness are presented as a testament to the fact that, as much as we''ve discovered since Howard Philips Lovecraft''s time, there are still many more unknowns waiting to be uncovered.Parry Milton

Stiff, Sick and Vile Things Box Set - Three Complete Comet Press Anthologies in the THINGS Series
For the first time ever, Comet Press brings you their infamous THINGS anthologies in one terrifying trio, featuring authors such as Ramsey Campbell, Graham Masterton, Tim Curran, John Shirley, Simon Wood, Fred Venturini and many more. Three anthologies in one, with 700 pages and 42 stories, including the newest book in the series, STIFF THINGS! VILE THINGS: EXTREME DEVIATIONS OF HORROR -- the ultimate collection of extreme horror from award-winning masters and up-and-coming authors of macabre fiction. SICK THINGS: EXTREME CREATURE HORROR -- a disturbing collection of extreme creature horror with 17 deviant and gore-soaked stories featuring demons, cannibals, mutants, golems, werewolves, and many more vile creatures, monsters, and beasts. STIFF THINGS: THE SPLATTERP0RN ANTHOLOGY-- ratchets up the er0ticism and visceral intensity with twisted hardcore stories that penetrate new depths of psychosexual horror. Not for the squeamish or prudish. Don’t get any on you. EDITORIAL REVIEWS "This book is a definite for any extreme horror fan. Full of terror, sex, and gore, I don''t recommend this for the faint of heart or for a light read at a beauty salon." --FANGORIA (on Vile Things) "But dismembered members aside, there are no cheap gross-outs here; even though the focus is clearly on the vile and unpalatable these don''t feel like stories that were written with the sole purpose of being labeled ''extreme horror'' or to merely revel in their graphic, gory descriptions. Simply put, VILE THINGS is every deviant horror fan''s wet dream." --RUE MORGUE "VILE THINGS is one of the stronger horror anthologies I have come across in some time, its theme literally appears to be centered around creatures, topics, or situations that are so vile it would send a shiver down your spine. It includes stories from both established and newer horror authors, and some of the stories are more extreme than the usual fare."--MONSTER LIBRARIAN "Cover every orifice. Comet Press'' new collection is making a beeline for the soft contents of your body--and it doesn''t care one bit where it makes its grand entrance, orbital sockets or otherwise. Rest assured this violation will be painful, given the tight confinements of our fallible frames of flesh—but anything less than a full-on ass-rape would probably seem insufficient in the eyes of editrix Cheryl Mullenax…Mullenax has assembled a rogue''s gallery of intelligent grotesqueries that will temper one''s appetite hours after closing the book…" --FANGORIA (on Sick Things) “I thoroughly enjoyed reading this Anthology. Like I said in the beginning, no story fell short for me. Everyone brought an er0tic taste that stimulated every sense of my being. I highly recommend this book who love some deranged er0tic horror.” -- SPLATTER CAFE (on Stiff Things)

Their life seems ideal and Luke feels that true happiness is finally within his grasp. This wasn''t always the case.

While his parents adored him, the whole family knew that due to a mix-up at the hospital, Luke wasn''t their biological child. His parents did the best they could to make the lad feel special. But it was his beloved uncle Terence who Luke felt most close to, a man who enchanted (and frightened) the lad with tales of the "Other"--eldritch beings, hedge folks, and other fables of Celtic myth. When Terence dies in a freak accident, Luke suddenly begins to learn how little he really knew his uncle. How serious was Terence about the magic in his tales?

The Book of Liverpool
A baby blown out of an upstairs window by a WWII bomb lives to hear others tell the tale… A woman embarks on a long-term obsession with a city landmark, abandoning her lover for the Liver… A bricklayer working on the foundations of a never-built cathedral becomes its evangelist, its full splendour soaring only in his mind… Bringing together fiction from some of the city’s most celebrated writers, The Book of Liverpool traces the unique contours that decades of social and economic change can impress on a city. Set against key historical moments from the Second World War to the Capital of Culture year, these stories question what ‘belonging’ and ‘home’ mean in the Liverpudlian context, from the regenerated city centre to satellite suburbs, from the sparring cathedrals to the no-go concrete housing estates. Liverpool emerges in these short stories as a city in constant flux: haunted by ghosts, buoyed up by myths, and shifting with an ebb and flow like the Mersey itself. "A literary gem that will share a niche in my library with M.R. James and E. F. Benson..." - Metapsychology online Read review. "Words thrive here, carried on the saline breeze of the Mersey and twisted round agile tongues into sentences as resilient as the sandstone blocks in the Town Hall walls..." - The Liverpool Daily Post, 11 Jul 08 Read review.

Holes for Faces

release date: Nov 05, 2018
Holes for Faces
One of the most respected living horror writers in the world, Campbell has more awards for his horror tales than any other author, and "is likely to be remembered as the leading horror writer of our generation," according to S.T. Joshi. One of the heirs apparent to early-twentieth-century American author H. P. Lovecraft, Campbell''s horror stories are often set in contemporary Merseyside, England, his own hometown, and involve quite ordinary characters. His unsettling, dreamlike prose, however, transforms his work into very effective horror fiction. Holes for Faces collects many of his best tales from the first decade of this century. An attempt to avoid a haunted house leads into worse danger. The announcements at a railway station deal with stranger things than trains, and is that another railway station in the distance or a different kind of destination? A childhood game becomes a source of terror, and so does a radio quiz show. Even Christmas decorations may not be trusted, and beware of that Advent calendar! A hotel provides amenities you mightn''t welcome, and a visit to a tourist attraction attracts an uninvited follower. A train journey may never end, unless it already has, and a visit to a hospital brings back more than memories. A myth about a horror film has unwanted consequences. There are angels you mightn''t want to see too clearly, if that''s what they are. And you''ll have to decide if it''s better to stay in the dark or see what''s waiting there. You''ll find uncanny dread in these pages, and disquiet and terror, but also poignancy and comedy of paranoia. One theme runs through all the stories: youth and age.

Come and meet all of these companions and more in this chilling collection of horror tales by award-winning master of terror Ramsey Campbell.
