One of the first horror authors being published by Virgin/Random House is that old hand of British supernatural fiction, Ramsey Campbell.
His new novel, The Grin of the Dark, involves a search for a silent film comedian, Tubby Thackeray, whose career seemed to disappear overnight, and its effects on the investigator, film journalist Simon Lester.

John Jarrold concluded the deal with Adam Nevill at Virgin Books and Random House. The novel will be published in May 2008.
