Adult Fiction CAMPBEL
Summary: A former professor offers film critic Simon the chance of a lifetime-to write a book on one of the greatest long-lost comedians of the silent-film era, Tubby Thackeray. Simon is determined to find out the truth behind the jolly fat man's disappearance from film-and from the world.  Tubby's work carries the unmistakable stamp of the macabre.  People literally laughed themselves to death during his performances.  Soon, wherever Simon goes, laughter-and a clown's wide, threatening grin-follow.  Is Simon losing his mind?  Or is Tubby Thackeray waiting for him to open the door back to the world? Ramsey Campbell has won a dozen British Fantasy and World Fantasy Awards and three Bram Stoker Awards. A new Campbell novel is an opportunity to delight in the craftsmanship of an extraordinary writer.
