Necroscope I: Necroscope Summary

Necroscope I: Necroscope - Twenty years ago, the horror world was forever altered by the publication of Necroscope. An instant classic, Brian Lumley's astonishing feat of imagination spawned a universe which Lumley has explored and expanded through more that a baker's dozen of novels and novellas. Millions of copies of Necroscope and its successors are in print in a dozen languages throughout the world. Nominated for the British Fantasy Award, Necroscope has inspired everything from comic books and graphic novels to sculptures and soundtracks.

This new edition of Necroscope uses the author's preferred text and includes a special introduction by Brian Lumley, telling how the Necroscope saga came to be. It also includes chapter ornaments by Hugo-Award-Winning artist Bob Eggleton, long identified with Lumley's blood-sucking monsters.

As a classic, Necroscope rightfully claims a place in the Orb trade paperback list, for scholars of the field and the dedicated Lumley collector. And also for all the people who have read more than one mass market copy of the book to tatters.

Harry Keogh is the man who can talk to the dead, the man for whom every grave willingly gives up its secrets, the one man who knows how to travel effortlessly through time and space to destroy the vampires that threaten all humanity.
In Necroscope, Harry is startled to discover that he is not the only person with unusual mental powers--Britain and the Soviet Union both maintain super-secret, psychically-powered espionage organizations. But Harry is the only person who knows about Thibor Ferenczy, a vampire long buried in the mountains of Romania--still horribly alive, in undeath--and Thibor's insane "offspring," Boris Dragosani, who rips information from the souls of the dead in a terrible, ever-lasting form of torture.

Somehow, Harry must convince Britain's E-Branch that only by working together can they locate and destroy Dragosani and his army of demonic warriors--before the half-vampire succeeds in taking over the world!

  • Necroscope

    By Kraley1
    This is my second time reading this book and is still one of my favorites! Good read you’ll enjoy every chapter of it!
  • Love this series!

    By poliphemos
    Anyone who doesn't enjoy this series has probably read too much Anne Rice.
  • Absolutely morbidly amazing!

    By Demiduce
    I've never read a book that was so dark and deep that had such a good story. Gold star all the way
  • Not great

    By Iommiage
    Got about 3/4 of the way through the book before giving up on it. Couldn't get used to Lumley's hamfisted writing style. His characters for the most part are fairly uninteresting with his main character being the most boring of the bunch. While his ideas are decent his writing lacks. They say not to judge a book by its cover but sadly it's spot on as far as necroscope is concerned.
  • Necroscope the beginning
