Fellstones by Ramsey Campbell
"Campbell has mastered the art of generating a sense of sustained unease.” “He writes of our deepest fears in a precise, clear prose that somehow manages to be beautiful and terrifying at the same time. He is a powerful, original writer...” – The Washington Post.
“He is unsurpassed in the subtle manipulation of mood... You forget you’re just reading a story” - Publishers Weekly
A historical monument that gives the village of Fellstones its name proves to have been the work of an occultist centuries ago. When Paul Dunstan is called back to Fellstones by his adoptive parents to take part in the village festival, he begins to recapture memories that remind him why he fled, and gradually learns the purpose of the stones—all of which may be too late to save him from their influence. The Fellstones dream, but they’re about to waken.
