The Face That Must Die

Ramsey Campbell


Ramsey Campbell’s daring look into the mind of a psychotic killer was published in truncated form in 1979; an expanded edition was later published in 1982. The paranoid outlook of the book’s main character, Horridge, is a grim commentary on a bleak Liverpool suburb and Thatcher-era England.
      This edition has the corrected text by Campbell and the compelling photographs of J.K. Potter, with a new introduction by Poppy Z. Brite, a bonus short story, and a new afterword by Campbell.
