Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Harry Keogh: Necroscope and Other Weird Heroes! is a collection of eight long short stories featuring Brian Lumley's most popular characters and includes three brand-new stories of Harry Keogh, the original Necroscope!

Titus Crow: Psychic detective, master magician, destroyer of the ancient Chthulian gods. In "Inception," we see the infant Titus at the moment his destiny falls upon him. In "Lord of the Worms," a simple secretarial job lands Crow on a sacrificial altar. And in "Name and Number," Henri Laurent de Marigny details a battle between Titus Crow and malevolent, occult winds which can rip living flesh from bone.

David Hero and Eldin the Wanderer: once men of the waking world, now agents for King Kuranes of the Dreamlands. Sips of "The Weird Wines of Naxas Niss" send the pair on a tumultuous journey from a buxom beauty's bed to the depths of a wizard's dungeon. Then, seeking his missing friend, David Hero boards an ill-fated airship that is home to "The Stealer of Dreams."

Harry Keogh, Necroscope: vampire killer without peer, capable of conversing with the dead. A sudden windfall brings Harry to Las Vegas, where he meets "Dead Eddie," a gambler who can't resist trying for one last big win from beyond the grave. In "Dinosaur Dreams, Harry's interest in fossils leads him to uncover the truth behind the death of a young amateur paleontologist . . . and to discover that it's not just dead people he can call on in a crisis . . . . Harry's undying love for his mother leads him down a dangerous path in "Resurrection."

Four of Lumley's greatest heroes. Three of his most popular worlds. Tales to chill and to delight. Open the book and be swept away.

Synopsis:

"Wide-angle horror of a scope too rarely seen in modern fiction. A feast for the horror fan."

--F. Paul Wilson

"Lumley still excels at depicting heroes larger than life and horrors worse than death."

--"Publishers Weekly on "Necroscope: Avengers

"Lumley's original portrayal of paranormal powers, his dry wit, and a long, thundering climax assure that this hefty book will handsomely reward readers."

--"Booklist on "Necroscope: Defilers

"Lumley's pure narrative energy and just sheer joy carries the book along. Lumley's imagination always works overtime and new concepts are fired at the reader with amazing regularity."

--"Ashland News on "Necroscope: Resurgence

"Lumley is obviously very bright, articulate, and in possession of an incredibly wild imagination."

--"Rapport

"Rivals Anne Rice's vampire saga....Lumley never oversteps the delicate line between blood-chilling horror and cold gruel. An accomplished wordsmith, Lumley wields a pen with the deft skill of a surgeon."

--"The Phoenix Gazette on "Blood Brothers

"This complex, fast-paced, and challenging novel is a highly successful blend of genres and should appeal to fans of horror, fantasy, and espionage. Lumley deserves a wide audience among those who love both Anne Rice and John Grisham--or maybe Stephen King."

--"VOYA on "The Last Aerie
