reviews from the archive – Fellstones by Ramsey Campbell

Available: September 2022

Publisher: Flame Tree Press

A creepy community, an overbearing family, strange secrets, something fantastical in and underneath the stones…I was sucked into this novel right out the gate. I was pulled back to it every chance I got over the course of three days. It’s not often I devour a novel these days, but that’s what I did here – I devoured FELLSTONES. It was eerie and interesting and frustrating (Campbell’s characters are always frustrating to me); though the finale left a bit to be desired, I was too glued to this book to complain all that much in the end. This might be my favorite Campbell I’ve read so far. ~ 4.5 out of 5
