The Talosite

The Talosite is available from Undertow Publications.

It’s on the 2023 Bram Stoker Award Preliminary Ballot.

And the 2023 Locus Magazine Recommended Reading List.

It’s 1916, during the First World War, in an alternate world where resurrection is possible. Anne Markham, the daughter of a celebrated neurologist, is reusing the bodies of the dead, combining them into new forms and sending them back into combat, building creatures so complex, and so enormous, that they can encompass all of the fallen.

“Campbell captures the perfect voice in this deftly-crafted alternate history that explores both wonders and horrors and the blurred space where the two bleed into one. A tale of science and war that is at once fantastical and frightening for how plausible it feels. A meticulously-built alternate history set against the backdrop of WWI, weaving in dark and fantastic elements that bring to mind the classic science fictional horror of Mary Shelley. Classic and timeless.”

A.C. Wise, Author of Wendy, Darling, and The Ghost Sequences.
