This landmark volume marked the first U.S. publication of British horror phenomenon, Tim Lebbon. As the Sun Goes Down collects 90,000 words of his best work, including several original pieces, like The Unfortunate”, which went on to win a Bram Stoker award, and was included in several Year’s Best” anthologies. As the Sun Goes Down also features an introduction by Ramsey Campbell.
This collection presents a tableau of stories each very distinct in content and form, yet inextricably linked in disturbing the reader and challenging their accepted values. Not one tale is wasted in Lebbon’s determination to subvert our perceptions of love, life, nature, beauty and the innocence of childhood. His use of language and narrative form is unrelenting, each vying to create images from words that incessantly chip away at our confidence in the so-called truths’ of existence.
