Afterword by Ramsey Campbell
Ramsey Campbell is described by The Oxford Companion to English Literature as “Britain’s most respected living horror writer”. He has been given more awards than any other writer in the field, including the Grand Master Award of the World Horror Convention, the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Horror Writers Association, the Living Legend Award of the International Horror Guild and the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2015 he was made an Honorary Fellow of Liverpool John Moores University for outstanding services to literature. Among his novels are The Face That Must Die, Incarnate, Midnight Sun, The Count of Eleven, Silent Children, The Darkest Part of the Woods, The Overnight, Secret Story, The Grin of the Dark, Thieving Fear, Creatures of the Pool, The Seven Days of Cain, Ghosts Know, The Kind Folk, Think Yourself Lucky and Thirteen Days by Sunset Beach. He is presently working on a trilogy, The Three Births of Daoloth. Needing Ghosts, The Last Revelation of Gla’aki, The Pretence and The Booking are novellas. His collections include Waking Nightmares, Alone with the Horrors, Ghosts and Grisly Things, Told by the Dead, Just Behind You and Holes for Faces, and his non-fiction is collected as Ramsey Campbell, Probably. His regular columns appear in Dead Reckonings and Video Watchdog. Ramsey Campbell lives on Merseyside with his wife Jenny. His pleasures include classical music, good food and wine, and whatever’s in that pipe.
Nick Mamatas is the author of several novels, including The Last Weekend and Lovecraftian murder mystery I Am Providence. His short fiction has appeared in Best American Mystery Stories, on Tor.com, in the anthologies Future Lovecraft and Lovecraft Unbound, and in many other venues. During the day, he edits books for VIZ Media, including the Haikasoru imprint of Japanese science fiction in translation. His most recent anthology is Hanzai Japan, co-edited with Masumi Washington.
John Goodrich has put a lot of effort into his dilettantism. He has dabbled in archery, fencing, and falconry, lived in such diverse locations as New Mexico, the San Francisco Bay Area, and New England, and had more jobs than anyone really should. His work may be found in Steampunk Cthulhu, Cthulhu’s Dark Cults, Undead & Unbound, Dark Rites of Cthulhu, and MONSTER! Magazine. Two of his novels, I Do Terrible Things and Hag have appeared as limited editions from Thunderstorm Press. Visit his blog of kaiju and swamp men fandom at flawediamonds.blogspot.com.
Robert M. Price, a fan of H.P. Lovecraft since the Lancer paperback collections of 1967 appeared, began writing articles on HPL and the Cthulhu Mythos in 1980. His celebrated semi-pro zine Crypt of Cthulhu began as a quarterly fanzine for the Esoteric Order of Dagon Amateur Press Association in 1981 and made it to 109 issues. Contributors included rising stars of Lovecraft scholarship S.T. Joshi, Donald R. Burleson, Peter H. Cannon, and Will Murray, as well as renowned Cthulhu Mythos writers such as Brian Lumley, Lin Carter, Ramsey Campbell, Colin Wilson, Gary Myers, and John Glasby. In 1990 Price began editing Mythos fiction anthologies for Fedogan & Bremer, including Tales of the Lovecraft Mythos, The New Lovecraft Circle, Acolytes of Cthulhu, and Worlds of Cthulhu. He has compiled a great number of Mythos anthologies for Chaosium, Inc., including The Hastur Cycle and The Azathoth Cycle, Anthologies for other publishers include the Arkham House Robert Bloch collection Flowers from the Moon. His own fiction has been collected in Blasphemies and Revelations from Mythos Books. His monograph Lin Carter: A Look behind his Imaginary Worlds is now quite rare. Price has continued the adventures of Carter’s Sword-&-Sorcery hero Thongor of Lemuria, as well as those of Carter’s occult detective Anton Zarnack.
Pete Rawlik, a long time collector of Lovecraftian fiction and in 1985 stole a car to go see the film Reanimator. He successfully defended himself by explaining that his father had regularly read him The Rats in the Wall as a bedtime story. His first professional sale was in 1997, but didn’t begin to write seriously until 2010. Since then he has authored more than fifty short stories and the Cthulhu Mythos novels Reanimators, and The Weird Company. He is a frequent contributor to the Lovecraft ezine and the New York Review of Science Fiction. In 2014 his short story Revenge of the Reanimator was nominated for a New Pulp Award. In 2015 he co-edited The Legacy of the Reanimator for Chaosium. Somewhere along the line he became known as the Reanimator guy, but he fervently denies being obsessed with the character. His new novel, Reanimatrix is a weird-noir-romance set in H. P. Lovecraft’s Arkham, and will be released in 2016. He lives in southern Florida where he works on Everglades issues and does a lot of fishing.
Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire has been writing Lovecraftian weird fiction since the early 1970s, first for the small press and then for commercial anthologies. Wilum’s latest books include Monstrous Aftermath (Hippocampus Press) and (in collaboration with David Barker) In the Gulfs of Dreams. With David he has written a short novel entirely set in Lovecraft’s dreamland, which has just found a publisher. Wilum dreams in Seattle.

He is currently writing a superhero novel called I am Lesion for the National M.S. Society, and finishing a science-fiction horror meganovel called There was a Crooked Man that Barry N. Malzberg pronounced “fit to stand on the same shelf as Earth Abides and The Day After.”
Scott R. Jones’ fiction and poetry has appeared in Broken City Mag, Cthulhu Haiku 2, Cthulhu Fhtagn! (Word Horde), and Australia’s Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, among others. His story, Turbulence, was awarded an Honourable Mention in Imaginarium 3: The Best Canadian Speculative Fiction.

Thana Niveau is a horror and science fiction writer. Originally from the States, she now lives in the UK, in a Victorian seaside town between Bristol and Wales.

Orrin Grey is a writer, editor, amateur film scholar, and monster expert who was born on the night before Halloween. His stories of ghosts, monsters, and sometimes the ghosts of monsters have appeared in dozens of anthologies, including The Best Horror of the Year, and been collected in Never Bet the Devil & Other Warnings and Painted Monsters & Other Strange Beasts. He played way too many video games when he was younger, and it has probably had an irreversible affect on him.
Tom Lynch is thrilled to join the rest of this dark brotherhood in tribute to Ramsey Campbell, the living legend. Tom is a longtime devotee of the art of the fine frightening tale, and is descended from family that enjoys a good nightmare: is it any wonder he focuses on the weird and dark? Tom has published fiction in Horror for the Holidays, issues 21, 30, and 35 of The Lovecraft eZine, Tales of the Talisman volume 8/issue 4, Undead and Unbound, Eldritch Chrome, Atomic Age Cthulhu: Terrifying Tales of the Mythos Menace, A Mythos Grimmly, Dark Rites of Cthulhu and more. He will be appearing in several more upcoming anthologies, but the ink is not yet dry enough to share details. By day, Tom is a middle school teacher, working to expand young minds. He spends what little “spare” time he has hunched over his keyboard…WRITING.

His short stories have been published in the AE Canadian Science Fiction Review, Atelier Press’ Trident Magazine and the BATTLE ROYALE Slambook by Haikasoru.

John Langan has taught reading and writing at Atlantic Cape Community College near Atlantic City, New Jersey, for over twenty-five years. The author of a popular series of college textbooks on both writing and reading, John enjoys the challenge of developing materials that teach skills in an especially clear and lively way. Before teaching, he earned advanced degrees in writing at Rutgers University and in reading at Rowan University. He also spent a year writing fiction that, he says, “is now at the back of a drawer waiting to be discovered and acclaimed posthumously.” While in school, he supported himself by working as a truck driver, a machinist, a battery assembler, a hospital attendant, and an apple packer. John now lives with his wife, Judith Nadell, near Philadelphia. In addition to his wife and Philly sports teams, his passions include reading and turning on nonreaders to the pleasure and power of books. Through Townsend Press, his educational publishing company, he has developed the nonprofit “Townsend Library”–a collection more than thirty new and classic stories that appeal to readers of any age.

There is a lake in the Severn Valley, near a town called Brichester. It is an eerie, haunted place, both by day and by night. Night especially though, is a time when no one in their right mind would go anywhere near it, or those oddly deserted houses that stand, albeit barely, on the edge of the shore. But why? What is it that moves about in that lake, a thing that makes its presence known with three sinister glowing eyes that protrude from beneath the water?
Some believe it is an entity that traveled to Earth, many thousands of years ago inside a hollow meteor.
