Review quote

"Since reading Lumley's "Necroscope" series, I know that vampires really do exist!"-H. R. Giger "Lumley excels at depicting heroes larger than life and horrors worse than death."--"Publishers Weekly" "Lumley is obviously very bright, articulate, and in possession of an incredibly wild imagination."--"Rapport" "Lumley uses language deftly to conjure his alien universe."--"Publishers Weekly" "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"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 and convoluted histories."--"San Francisco Chronicle" "Whether humorous or atmospheric and chilling, Lumley's tales are delightful."--"Booklist" "For fans of Brian Lumley and anyone who enjoys Lovecraft. Well written, displaying Lumley's skill at world building."--"Midwest Book Review" on "Harry Keogh: Necroscope and Other Weird Heroes" "A faithful tribute by veteran fantasist Lumley to horror author H.P. Lovecraft. A good addition to most libraries' horror collections and a title with special appeal to fans of the Cthulhu mythos."--"Library Journal "on "Beneath the Moors and Darker Places" "Nightmarish in a manner obviously inspired by Lovecraft . . . long hard to find in the US. Lumley succeeds at spine-chilling creepiness. Juicy indeed-worthy additions to the mythos and the horror genre alike."--"Booklist" on "ochBeneath the Moors and Darker Places"show more
