From Publishers Weekly
British author Lumley's first Necroscope novel since Necroscope IV: Deadspeak (2001) introduces a new hero, Scott St. John, who, like his late predecessor, Harry Keough, is able to talk to the dead and travel anywhere via Moebius strip. Scott becomes a spy in the E-Branch of the British Secret Service, joining, among others, a future-foretelling precog, a mind-reading telepath and a spotter who can detect persons with ESP. When a government official suffers "evagination" (in effect, he's turned inside out like a glove), Scott and crew wind up on a mission to prevent a psychically gifted race, the Shing't, from destroying the Earth. The spirit of Scott's recently deceased wife permits him to dally with an extraterrestrial beauty, Shania, as well as, however implausibly, a shaggy female wolf. Billed as horror, this...

Book Description
There's a maniacal murderer on the loose, brutally slaughtering young women with a ferocity that rivals that of vampires Harry Koegh has spent his life combatting. The Necroscope's been asked to solve the crimes...asked by the dead spirits of the madman's victims.

Harry cannot turn down a request from the dead...even if it costs him his soul. In the climactic battle with the vampires, mankind prevailed and purged the vampires from earth--thanks to Harry, his team of psychically-gifted spies, and Faethor Ferenczy, long-dead 'father' of the world's vampires, who betrayed his own kind.

But Harry's alliance with Faethor has a terrible cost--Harry's very humanity is under attack from the vampire evil coiled in his mind!

Amazon Book Review
Welcome to Brian Lumley's wild world of vampires, slayers, spies, and psychics, created in his breakthrough 1986 book Necroscope, which introduced Harry Keogh, a man who could commune with dead people. Harry was such a skilled linguist of "deadspeak" that the British Secret Service recruited him into E-Branch, its ace paranormal unit. Harry waged a war against vampires--until the tables turned and he became another bloodsucking statistic. No longer a Necroscope (top vampire hunter), now he's a kind of advisor who beams helpful thoughts from the afterlife.

E-Branch's vampire woes intensify in Necroscope Defilers, the 12th installment of Lumley's series. A trio of seriously nasty critters are spreading their spawn on earth, but E-Branch is in crisis. Jake Cutter, the new Necroscope, is preoccupied with a personal...

Vampires, sons borns of mortals, thralls, crones, trogs, the undead, shape-shifters, leeches, hags, flyers, cartilage creatures--all are characters in this diverting if drawn-out tale of the twin sons of Harry Keough. The late Keough (previously seen in Nec ro scope and four other outings), a telepathic vampire hunter able to speak with the dead, has passed the torch to his unwitting sons, Nestor and Nathan, who not only think their father was a humble gypsy but also mistakenly believe that all the vampires in the world were destroyed long ago. The young men--one seemingly simple and innocent, the other strong and fiercely intelligent--are separated when their settlement on Sunside is attacked by vampire warriors from Starside known as Wamphyri. As their personalities undergo drastic transformations and Keough's...

From Publishers Weekly
This new bottle can't disguise the aging wine of Lumley's Necroscope series or the increasingly stale bouquet of its last few installments. Set in a world where the vampire villains are resurrected as regularly as the cinematic Frankenstein's monster, and where the psychic hero is forever channeling the thoughts of dead characters from previous episodes, this expansive 13th novel is distinguished mostly by its sense of d‚j… vu. The story picks up right after events in Necroscope: Defilers (2000) with the revelation that vampires Nephran Malinari, the Lady Vavara and Lord Szwart are still at large, despite the efforts of Ben Trask's E-Branch operatives to wipe them out in Greece. The ESPionage agents chase the elusive vampires through Turkey, trying to prevent them from seeding the world with spores of...

From Publishers Weekly
After a three-book sojourn in the mythical "Vampire World" of The Last Aerie (1994), Lumley's epic Necroscope saga returns to contemporary Europe for this ripping yarn of espionage and occult intrigue set during the years separating the second (Vamphyri!) and third (The Source) novels of the projected nine-volume series. British intelligence agent Harry Keogh, who can converse telepathically with the dead, appears here, younger and less experienced than when last seen. He has just vanquished Soviet vampire nemesis Boris Dragosani and learned how to travel through space and time, but his problems are only beginning. His wife and infant son disappear. For different reasons, both his colleagues at British intelligence and new acquaintance Bonnie Jean ("B.J.") Mirlu have used posthypnotic suggestion to prevent him...

Prolific British horror writer Lumley collaborates with an American scholar of his work on this informative volume. Contents include extensive biographical material, an interview, essays on major themes in his work (especially the influence of H. P. Lovecraft and Lumley's own Lovecraft pastiches), detailed bibliographies, and dictionaries (mislabeled "concordances") of the major concepts and characters in his major works. Clearly confirmed by this mass of largely new information are two things faithful Lumley readers are already aware of: his growing sense of the ridiculous and his burgeoning folkloric and mythological expertise. It is also made clear that much of his published work has never crossed the Atlantic or, if it did, dropped out of print rather quickly. Lumley hasn't reached the heights of either originality or...

Review
"One of the best writers in the field." --John Farris

"Lumley's strength is in his jovial voice, a diction that dominates the narrative. Lumley's love of his pulp-horror subjects is gleefully apparent. He revels in every telling detail, in stories-within-stories...." --San Francisco Chronicle

"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, drawing just enough blood to titillate without offending his readers." --The Phoenix Gazette

From Publishers Weekly
Vast in scope and overripe with extraordinary characters and incidents, Lumleys proliferating Necroscope saga almost mandates a book-length reference companion. This new novel, the 11th in the series (after Resurgence, 1996) and the first in an offshoot trilogy, carries on the tradition in fine form, but also shows the problems inherent in keeping the increasingly byzantine intrigues of these horror/espionage hybrids accessible to new readers. During an explosive start, in which psychic agents of the hard-working E- (short for ESP) Branch smoke out a nest of vampires in the Australian desert, the novel introduces Jake Cutter, another of Lumleys gutsy populist heroes. Jake has been delivered to the paranormal intelligence unit by the ghost of Harry Keogh, the original Necroscope, who foresees a future clash...


Tarra Khash: Hrossak!: Tales of the Primal Land, Volume 2 (Necroscope Series)

From Publishers Weekly
British Fantasy Award–winner Lumley pays homage to Robert E. Howard's Conan in the six fantasy tales of his second Primal Land collection (after 2005's The House of Cthulhu). Barbarian Tarra Khash wanders the world of Theem'hdra, an island continent, where he more than holds his own against sorcerers, lamias and cutthroat thieves. In the opener, "Treasure of the Scarlet Scorpion," Tarra carries a stash of rubies from the scorpion god. From long exposure, Tarra is immune to the creature's sting; not so his doomed jailer, Nud Annoxin, when the god comes to call. In contrast to this baldly told tale is the poignant "Told in the Desert," in which an entire race faces a tragic end. These entertaining, unpretentious stories in the pulp tradition show Lumley at his relaxed best. (Apr.) Copyright © Reed...

From Publishers Weekly
The epic battle between humanity and evil vampires and werewolves traced in Lumley's massive Necroscope novels continues in this second volume in the saga's Lost Years mini-saga, which began when Harry Keough, the Necroscope, lost his memory and awoke in the body of another man. Harry hasn't lost his powers to travel through time and space and to speak with the dead, however, so he's as potent an enemy as ever of vampires and werewolves. These creatures are the descendants of extraterrestrial exiles, and their struggle both to eliminate one another and to rule the world is reaching a climax. One of them, Radu Lykan, last of the original invaders and first of all werewolves, is seeking to move his mind from his own plague-ravaged body into Harry's. This premise leads to an absorbing, if convoluted and bloody tale....
