Publishing summary “Smile of darkness” says:
Simon is a former film critic, people without work, prospects and the profession as a magazine where he was editor-in-chief, was found guilty of libel. When Simon gets an offer from the University to write a book about a forgotten actor of the silent film era, he grabs the last chance to salvage his career. The more the material is interesting: Tubby Thackeray, a clown, whose views, according to rumors, people literally died laughing. The comedian, whose films, which once put on a par with the works of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, disappeared almost without a trace, as if specially tried to destroy. Simon begins to restore the information in the private archives, strange circus performances and even pornography, but the more you advance in the study, the more his life becomes a terrifying nightmare from which like no way… Because Tabby had forgotten, and his legacy is associated with something that is much older film, something incredibly dangerous and insane.
The book was published in the well-known series “Masters of horror” from the editors “Astrel-SPb”. This is the first novel of Campbell, officially published in Russian a major publishing house. This was expensive malotirazhki, the existence of which the author hardly knows, and a scattering of short stories in various collections. Actually, for these stories (“Fun”, “There”, “the Brood”) at the time we fell in love with Campbell. Now there is an opportunity to evaluate his large form.
