''The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is the only professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992, the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. In July 2006, The J.T.Downes memorial Gambia Expedition 2006 - a six-person team - Chris Moiser, Richard Freeman, Chris Clarke, Oll Lewis, Lisa Dowley and Suzi Marsh went to the Gambia, West Africa. They went in search of a dragon-like creature, known to the natives as `Ninki Nanka`, which has terrorized the tiny African state for generations, and has reportedly killed people as recently as the 1990s. They also went to dig up part of a beach where an amateur naturalist claims to have buried the carcass of a mysterious fifteen foot sea monster named 'Gambo', and they sought to find the Armitage's Skink (Chalcides armitagei) - a tiny lizard first described in 1922 and only rediscovered in 1989. Here, for the first time, is their story''.

449 Joshi, S. T. (ed.)Letters To Arkham: The Letters Of Ramsey Campbell And August Derleth, 1961-1971. 43052
PS Publishing: Harrogate. 2014.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
420 pages.

''August Derleth was the proprietor of the leading small press in weird fiction, Arkham House, based on Sauk City, Wisconsin. In early 1961 he received a letter from one J. Ramsey Campbell, asking some questions about the author that was then the focus of both their lives, H. P. Lovecraft. Soon thereafter, Campbell sent Derleth some of his early Lovecraftian tales, and Derleth quickly saw that a dynamic new writer of Lovecraft's 'Cthulhu Mythos' had emerged. Only months later did Campbell tell Derleth that he was only fifteen years old. In the decade that followed, Derleth issued Campbell's first book, The Inhabitant of the Lake and Less Welcome Tenants (1964), published several of Campbell's stories in his anthologies, and accepted Campbell's second book, Demons by Daylight, published two years after Derleth's unexpected death in 1971. In the course of their intense correspondence, the two writers debated a wide variety of topics-Lovecraft, Arkham House, weird fiction, and in particular the many films that both of them enjoyed. Derleth helped Campbell to obtain works by Henry Miller and others that were banned in England, and the two also discussed delicate issues of romance, marriage, and sexuality. In this lively exchange of letters, we see Derleth becoming a valued mentor to the young Campbell, who would go on to become a towering figure in weird fiction''.
