About This Item

Burton, Michigan: Subterranean Press, 2010. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First edition, #157 of 250 copies signed by Brian Lumley and illustrator Bob Eggleton. Originally intended to be a chapter in Lumley's 1995 two-part novel, The Lost Years, this supernatural novella is the 17th book in his Necroscope series. Octavo. Full black leather binding, with metallic pink titles. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.

Synopsis

Necroscope is the title of a series of horror novels by British author Brian Lumley. The term necroscope, as defined in the series, describes someone who can communicate with the dead (coined Deadspeak later in the series). Unlike necromancers, who attempt to command the dead through rituals, spells, bodily mutilation and sometimes necrophilia, a necroscope simply communicates with them without any physical interference. The abilities of a necroscope are defined as a type of ESP.
