The Influence

Ramsey Campbell


One of Ramsey Campbell’s most well-paced and unsettling novels, The Influence was published in 1988 and has a long history. Scream/Press was to do the original limited edition, for which JK Potter created a number of his photographs. However, the Scream edition never appeared, and the Potter illustrations sat unused for over twenty years. This new edition features Potter’s photographs, a new introduction by Peter Atkins, new afterwords by Ramsey Campbell and J.K. Potter, outtakes, and a 50 page interview with Ramsey Campbell by Stefan Dziemianowicz.
      Over 7  ×  10 inches, printed silk front panel, Japanese cloth on back panel, top-edge stain, ribbon marker, patterned endsheets, duotone images, two different paper stocks, 300 + pages, and a beautiful design. Signed by Ramsey Campbell and J.K. Potter.
