When it comes to chilling examinations of the decaying mind, no one does it better than Ramsey Campbell. Whether the decay is literal (i.e. his mad killer stories) or symbolic (the supernatural stuff), no other writer can summon of the level of dread, isolation, and despair that Campbell can. Waking Nightmares gathers together stories from Campbell's early years (i.e. Jack In The Box) as well as his more recent work. Although some of the stories are a tad predictable (especially if you have read a great deal of Campbell's work), each is powerful in its own quiet way. I can't think of a better way to give yourself the heebie-jeebies than by reading anything by Ramsey Campbell. Highest recommendation.

I had heard of Ramsey Campbell as a well recognized voice in horror. However, after reading this collection of stories I seriously question why. Campbell does deserve credit for some decent ideas but every story boils down to the same thing: Too much description and a vague or lame ending. Campbell puts King to shame with his description of every...single...thing. After 3 stories, I could care less what the color of the leaves are or what shape the cracks in the living room wall appear to be. It also kills the buzz the 15th time you read about about shadows "that seem to contain more". Each story is a practice in over description followed by an ending that does not fit anything contained in the story or else you see it coming early on. It almost feels like the author lost speed towards the middle of each story and was running on fumes by the end. I feel no desire to read another Campbell story again.

Campbell again shows himself to be a master of mood and atmosphere with a collection of tales of a wide variety of setting and tone. Studied and effective, understated horror. In fact, he accomplishes better than horror (revulsion at something that has happened) and instead achieves terror (fear of something that *may* happen), which is Stephen King's stated highest goal. Thouroughly recommended.

Ramsey Campbell is the scariest writer of fiction there is. This collection of short stories once again proves that well known fact. A student from the H.P. Lovecraft school of horror, campbell takes the reader on a phsycological journey through the most sacred and untouched realms of our minds, the realm of fear. If you read one book of horror short stories this should be it, because once you've had a taste of campbell you're hooked.
