Most acknowledge him as the greatest living writer of the horror tale in the English language. This volume contains all-new stories by seventeen admiring fellow-authors. All the stories are set in that ancient and fearful portion of England's Severn Valley which Mr. Campbell evoked in narratives such as The Moon-Lens. Included in this book is a new story by him, his first Severn Valley yarn in decades. Published in conjunction with his trip to the United States.
Eighteen stories, decorative map of the region, portrait of Ramsey Cambell, Introduction by the editor.

Some excellent work here, but some stories were sadly lacking the deeper vision of Campbell. Certainly there was some excellent entries "Beauty", "Fortunes", "Cross My Heart", "The Queen", "The Awakening", "Growing pains" & "The Horror Under Warrendown". Very atomospheric when these hit the mark. Worth collecting
This "tribute to Ramsey Campbell" is deeply disappointing. Most stories are clearly only transferred to his Goatswood setting as an afterthought - or an opportunity to see them published. A couple of them are nice, but most I could have done without.
