The Darkest Part of the Woods

(2002)
A novel by

 
 
Ramsey Campbell is the world's most honored living horror writer, with more than twenty World Fantasy, British Fantasy, Bram Stoker, and other awards to his credit. Hailed as one of the most literate and literary writers of our time, in genre and out, Campbell has been acclaimed as a "master of dark fantasy" by Clive Barker, one of today's "finest writers of supernatural horror and psychological suspense" by the Charleston Post & Courier, the "master of a skewed and exquisitely terrifying style" by Library Journal, "one of the world's foremost horror writers" by the San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle, and a "master of mood" by Publishers Weekly.

In The Darkest Part of the Woods, Campbell introduces readers to the Price family, whose lives have for decades been snarled with the fate of the ancient forest of Goodmanswood. Here, Dr. Lennox Price discovered a hallucinogenic moss that quickly became the focus of a cult-and though the moss and the trees on which it grew are long gone, it seems as if the whole forest can now affect the minds of visitors.

After Lennox is killed trying to return to his beloved wood, his widow seems to see and hear him in the trees-or is it a dark version of the Green Man that caresses her with leafy hands? Lennox's grandson heeds a call to lie in his lover's arms in the very heart of the forest-and cannot help but wonder what the fruit of that love will be.

And Heather, Lennox's daughter, who turned her back on her father's mysteries and sought sanctuary in the world of facts and history? Goodmanswood summons her as well . . .

    

"He provides the reader with insights and chills only a master of dark fantasy could achieve." - Clive Barker

"A storyteller who repeatedly leaves you stunned with the flick of a phrase, or an inisght that can honestly be called awesome. The worst is never over. No one knows that better than Ramsey Campbell." - Jonathan Carroll

"The undisputed master of the psychological horror novel... 'Dark Visioning' at its very best." - Robert Holdstock

"Campbell is highly regarded for his sensitive use of language and psychologically complex characters...Disquieting, unnerving and thoroughly satisfying." - Dean Koontz

"A powerhouse of a writer." - Robert R McCammon

"In some ways Ramsey Campbell is the best of us all." - Peter Straub

"The best horror writer alive, period. Each new book uncovers a little more of the real nightmare." - Thomas Tessier
