Even more belated greetings, Ichneumon. Hope you've got your power situation sorted out by now, and I look forward to reading those articles, whenever you have them ready.

I kept thinking I should check back in and missed the place but always got distracted. Maybe once I get my power back on I can finally write you some articles; I still have that major quibble with “Games Are Not Art”, and we’re lacking any articles on the late Joel Lane, Steve Rasnic Tem, the Leviathan anthologies from Ministry of Whimsy...

Okay. Thanks! Argh, cherish the fact that you live in a country where you don't have to pay exorbitant shipping fees for a single English paperback. You don't know how good it is until it's gone.

I'd personally go with Midnight Sun or Ancient Images out of that lot. Or possibly The Count of Eleven if you're up for something with a really dark sense of humour.

@Robinson: Thank you! I'm happy to be here.

@Arthur: I have a question about Ramsey Campbell. I'm interested in reading him, but don't quite know which of his works is a good introduction. The works of his that are available on Archive.org are
Ancient Images
Midnight Sun
Ghosts and Grisly Things
Obsession
Night of the Claw
The Count of Eleven
The Long Lost
Nazareth Hill
The Overnight
The Last Voice They Hear
Pact of the Fathers
The One Safe Place
Silent Children
Scared Stiff
I know you've written reviews for several of these, but there are also some titles I don't recognize. I think Obsession seems as good a place as any to start, but do you have any higher recommendations?
