    Necroscope deals with the concept of Paranormal Espionage, which could be seen as a forerunner of at least some of the themes prevalent in Urban Fantasy these days It is, however, presented in a very different fashion For one thing, this is first and foremost a Horror novel.The first half of the novel contains a number of historic sequences filling out the back stories of two key characters and laying the groundwork for the second half One of these characters is the Necroscope of the title, who [...]

    4.0 to 4.5 stars I just finished re reading this book and had forgotten just how much fun it was Harry Keogh is an absolutely fantastic character and his powers i.e the powers of the Necroscope are original and very cool This is a book that I have not heard come up very often in discussions of really great series and I think that is a shame This is extremely well written and very engaging Highly recommended Most recently read August 10, 2009.

    A common criticism of Cold War era spy novels is that they do not have enough vampires Brian Lumley addresses that problem in Necroscope, where Harry Keogh saves the world from monsters and Communism For those of you who don t know Latin, a Necroscope is someone who can scope the dead, which means Harry can have pleasant chats with the deceased to learn their secrets and even absorb their powers for his own This ability comes in handy when Harry is enlisted by British Intelligence s ESP branch t [...]

    2.5I m really undecided about this book It wasn t bad, but it didn t grip me Where to start It was a bit slow off the bat I was reading about the Russian ESPers and sort of wondering where everything was going, and when the actual story was going to get set up Looking back I suppose it was getting set up at the time, but it didn t feel like it.Then we got to Harry, and I was much interested For awhile, I dreaded the parts where we went back to Dragosani Ok, not dreaded, but I certainly didn t l [...]

    There s a lot going on in this one It is much than the standard blood sucker tale that I thought it was going to be Brian Lumley pens a unique take on the vampire mythos and adds some very cool paranormal esponiage elements as well His characterizations were very well drawn and while the pacing is slow at times, it never disengaged me from the storyline It had a real old school horror feeling throughout Excellent 4 Stars.

    My husband has been on a H.P Lovecraft kick lately He s reading everything, including stories by authors who have been influenced by The Master He reads the intro s to me for some of these short stories, especially when he sees something by an author he knows I ve read Such was the case with Brian Lumley I have copies of my Necroscope books on my shelves, I read them when they first came out and enjoyed them so much I ve kept intending to re read them Yes, I was a middle and high school girl rea [...]

    I truly loved reading this one Really got into the plot and characters barely did anything else for most of 2 days This is an another author new to me that I m going to have to explore, and deeply Why if I had next book in the series in hand, I d be reading it immediately Great SF adventure Complete page turner I m definitely a Lumley fan now The beginning was a bit cool and drowsy but once the leading man was introduced, about 100 pages in, the books plotting got pacey and thrilling Harry Keogh [...]

    It seems like I ve had Necroscope and some of its sequels on my bookshelves forever I think my early twenties I tried reading one of them and got bored in the first chapter so didn t get back to it Thanks for a group read at Horror Aficionados group, I finally dug in, stuck with it, and soon became absorbed.It still takes a mighty long time to take off, but it s just a slower style, a long tome that promises interest but divides its action sequences randomly When fight is present, it stands out [...]

    Whenever I ve come across a Brian Lumley short story, in one of Stephen Jones s annual compilations or elsewhere, I ve been hugely impressed It s fair to say that Lumley writes Lovecraftian better than Lovecraft does, as he gets to the eldritch horror of it whilst actually being able to write decent, readable prose As such for the last ten or fifteen years I ve been meaning to read Necroscope , his most famous novel and the one I always used to see in Smiths when I was kid Now ten or fifteen yea [...]

    A story with a character that can talk to the dead, one that can extract the dead s secrets, one that can give the evil eye , a vampire, zombies, British and Russian secret agencies that employ agents with all sorts of ESP talents, and a sci fi space time continuum all set in the middle of the Cold War How can Lumley pack so much goodness in 500 pages Necroscope is the book that started a horror series franchise before horror series were considered the norm Lumley crafts a tale that was revoluti [...]

    Really like 4.5 stars, but I ll be generous because there were entire sections here that were 5 star worthy The first 1.5 hours or so of the audio recording were a bit long winded and made me worry that I d been duped into reading a book solely about political espionage or in this case, E.S.Pnage However, once that bit was over the story really unfolded and took off in a couple of different and interesting directions I really enjoyed listening to the sections focusing on Harry Keogh and his sp [...]

    I really should have loved this book, set in the years after WII with the traditional Cold War adversaries and an added supernatural twist, competing divisions made up of agents with unusual abilities But there were long passages of background information that I really struggled to wade through This is a series of books so I guess you can consider this a set up book but it just seemed like there could have been a better way to incorporate all the information without resorting to these extended s [...]

    Wow, okay, it took me a little longer than usual to get through this book The amount of detail was a real slog at the beginning, but once you start getting into it, the story really takes off There are still spots of deep deep deeeeeeep detail on par with something from Lord of Rings or something, which I guess is one way of describing the magnitude of this series, minus any metaphor or symbolism Tolkien was a master for, still, its kinda nice having the horror equivalent of his work As for the [...]

    First few chapters are slow Very slow But then the book picks up and just keeps getting better What I d believed to be a vampire horror novel revealed itself to be much Necroscope is a Cold War spy novel, where world powers use ESP gifted agents to spy, interrogate, and assassinate There is a vampire It s a beautifully grotesque re imagining of the monster, Lovecraft than Stoker.

    Wow It s nearly impossible to describe how I feel about this book I was given it to read by my father the pair of us share a mutual love of horror books and films I m always keen to read vampire books but, good God, this is so much than a vampire book.When I started reading Necroscope, I couldn t help but notice that it was rather dated From the summary on the back, and the rather slow and unfortunately clich d beginning I had my doubts about what I was getting myself into it Slowly but surely [...]

    This one wasicated I finally got around to reading it after putting it off for a while, and I did enjoy it However, it wasn t really what I expected and it did have its flaws.First off, I think it s a little too lengthy 100 200 pages could have been cut and it would have been a stronger, tighter story The story is set during the Cold War, and we see Britain and Russia both utilizing ESP agents, as in agents with some type of mental power Our two main characters are a necromancer, who can speak t [...]

    Absolutely brilliant and fresh, written in a unique style, the first book in the epic horror series is definitely worth the cash and worth every second of reading It is utterly thrilling, stunning, despite a few things that can put you off and make you stop reading for a while, thinking the book unworthy The closer the ending is, the you wonder, the you want to know The characters are well developed, even if at the very beginning they may seem a little 2 D Worry not, for it is merely a beginni [...]

    NECROSCOPE by Brian Lumley, 1986I read half a dozen books by Brian Lumley in the early eighties, all on Lovecraftean themes These included the Titus Crow and Borea adventures I remember loving them.Then Lumley turned to new material, his Necroscope series This was original than expanding on Lovecraft s themes, perhaps, but it wasn t what I was looking for at the time so I set them aside to collect dust Recently, due to a buddy read, I decided to give them a go.The prolog of this first book is s [...]

    I was looking at the shelves I have marked this book with and I realized that I should probably add much since this book was such a mixture of genres.We have vampires but a totally uniques story with the simbiozis between the host and the parasitic vampire, we have dead rising at the end of the book or better said zombies, we have scientific talk about time relativity and different dimensions, time travel etc that open the door to scifi and there is probably something that I missed.This was a v [...]

    5 10I found this hard work towards the end I wasn t caring about the characters and what they were going through The whole book just seemed like a lot of backstory intending to build up to one climatic scene but, like I said, at that point I wasn t bothered It started out with lots of information about Dragosani and the Russians and I was wondering where it was going and then finally we met the main protagonist, Harry Keogh, and things started to pick up and get interesting as we got an insight [...]

    I was blown away by the originality of this novel Commandingly written with a unique and compelling take on the vampire legend and the use of paranormal abilities in the Cold War His deft hand has combined horror, sci fi and espionage into a unputdownable whole Brian Lumley is master storyteller who is gifted with an uncanny ability for mining nuggets of fear from a readers soul.Loved it.

    It s a trend I notice with Lumley s writing for me is that it takes me forever to get into his books I find them boring up to a point where it gets really good, and then it enthralls me.

    I bought this book because the cover was badasssss.I struck gold when I started reading I recommend this to anyone who likes the Cold War, vampires, time travel, and talking to famous dead people who keep making ideas in the afterlife.

    Este libro empez lent simo, empez a agarrar velocidad como a la mitad y al final tan s lo se sali de los rieles Tiene una historia que me parece muy interesante, que llama bastante mi atenci n, pero siento que es una pena que la narraci n y los personajes no hayan acompa ado como se debe a la premisa No s mucho de Briam Lumley, pero no termin de cautivarme su forma de contar la historia No creo que siga con la saga.

    Necroscope is an odd beast of a book Firstly one would be bound to suggest that it is a tad off genre in that the marketing boffins would inevitably class it as Horror Many of its elements however fall strictly under the SF umbrella Lumley s vampires, for instance, whose origins are explained fully in later volumes, have an arguably plausible biological and scientific basis The vampires are parasites which infect their human hosts and slowly rebuild them into virtually immortal beings.The story [...]

    Brian Lumley has created quite an in depth world with his Necroscope series Sometimes there is too much depth, and the story gets lost in the world creation going on This is both a strength and weakness of this novel In this novel, Harry Keogh is the Necroscope He has the special ability to communicate with the dead He comes across a vampire buried in the mountains of Romania The ancient vampire passes on his knowledge to Boris Dragosani, a Soviet spy, who sets his sights on world domination Har [...]

    This book was all the rage when it was first released, but boy it has not aged well The three star rating is basically due to the fact that it feels really dated because of the cold war aspects to the story Harry Keough is a Necroscope, which means for all intents and purposes, he can communicate with the undead Harry works for a secret branch of the U.S government that is trying to infiltrate and discover what they suspect is going on with their Russian counter parts in the KGB It seem they als [...]

    A Necroscope is a man who can communicate with the dead, the way he would as if they were still alive Harry Keogh is one, the only one there is The British E Branch E for ESPionage needs him Will the Russian E Branch get to him before they do If you enjoy Cold War thrillers, this is one with a supernatural twist Not only does it deal with secret agents with supernatural powers, it also presents vampires in an original way and by original I mean different from Bram Stoker, Anne Rice and your plet [...]
