"Beautifully written, a masterful story from a master of horror fiction, as well as a master of fiction in general, Ramsey Campbell's novel, The Searching Dead is strong on style, atmosphere, and the creeps. Time will show that Campbell will be remembered as one of the greats of all time. He has long surpassed Lovecraft, one of his major influences, and has gone on to influence others. Check it out."-- Joe Lansdale
"Campbell has always been a master of narrative drive delivering novels full of cliff-hangers and ominous revelations and The Searching Dead shows him at the height of his powers."-- Concatenation
