An Evening with Ramsey Campbell


Tue Mar 26 2024 at 06:00 am


Blackwell's Bookshop Liverpool | Liverpool, EN

We are looking forward to welcoming Ramsey Campbell back to our store to talk about his book 'The Nameless' and he will be in conversation with Simon Bestwick.
About the Book:
Barbara Waugh’s daughter Angela was kidnapped aged four, and when a disfigured body turns up that appears to be the end of the matter. Dealing with grief, Barbara establishes herself as a literary agent. Years after the disappearance she receives a phone call from Angela.
Convinced her daughter is alive, Barbara’s investigations take her deep into London, New York, and Scotland. Was a brainwashing cult responsible for Angela’s abduction? The more Barbara learns, the less she can trust, including those closest to her. Will she succumb to an evil so murderous it might not be of human origin?

In 2021 appreciation of his collected works, The Washington Post said, " taken together, they constitute one of the monumental accomplishments of popular fiction". Three of his novels have been filmed.
Since he first came to prominence in the mid-1960's, critics have cited Campbell as one of the leading writers in his field: T. E. D.
