I have often considered reading Brian Lumley but until now I have always put off buying his books. It always seemed to me that Lumley wrote pure horror (not my favourite) but despite appearances (his book covers) Necrosope is not a simple horror story. I would class this as a paranormal thriller.
Harry Keogh is a very special boy that grows into a talented man. He can speak to the dead and they listen! This makes him a Necroscope, a valuable resource to the British Secret Service. Just imagine, an agent is killed with vital information that the British needs. What do they do? Call Harry!
The book is full of great ideas that I have never read about. There are departments within the Russian and British secret services that use ESP to track nuclear Subs, predict the future, question the dead, kill with the evil eye!
Since reading this story, I have bough every single one of Lumley's books. That's how much I enjoyed this story.

With a big glaring monstrous skull on the cover, this is not initially the kind of book I would have picked up normally, until it was recommended by a friend. I turned out to be very happy I'd found it. This first book in the Necroscope series is easily the best in my opinion. With much more mystery about the vampires, their nature, and their history (without all the intricate classifications of the way they reproduce and grow, and all their ranks and whatnot) and much less of the repeated and unnessecary and eventually irritating sex scenes of all the later books, this is most definitely the best introduction to the series (even without the benefit of being first in order, which is important since in later books, Lumley reveals in great detail the whole plots of the previous books, all needed to understand the current book).
This book concerns the young Harry Keogh, who can talk to the dead and becomes mixed up in a fight against Boris Dragosani, a guy who can torture dead people for their knowledge, and who is also working for Thibor Ferenczy, a near-dead vampire stuck in the ground in Eastern Europe somewhere. Because Dragosani is working for the Soviet Government, this pulls in a whole level of political intrigue which carries over to the rest of the series as well.
Dragosani (with his tendency to kill people for their psychic powers, and his slight derangement) and more so Thibor (with his great speeches and AAAAAAHHHHs) make a great pair of villains for the Necroscope to face off against. The characters are all well developed and interesting (more so than in the crowded volumes of the rest of the series) and Thibor makes an extremely cool and scary enemy to lurk in the dark.

A wonderfuly original, frightening novel of horror. The main character, Harry Keogh, speaks with the dead. Imagine the multitudes of the dead speaking to you constantly as a child and throughout your growing years to your adult life, driving you mad with their requests and demands. Imagine a man who is so precious to those beyond the grave, that they will willingly rise from their eternal slumber to kill anyone who endangers him. Imagine a man who has access to almost limitless knowledge, who can bend space with his mind, to apear anywhere and anywhen he wishes! And this is the good guy. That alone should get your pulse pounding, (and if it doesn't perhaps your dead yourself). Now add on top of that a thrilling spy novel of cold-war intrigue and Bond-esque gadgetry, a sleeping but unquiet Vampyre who is no less dangerous now that he is dead, and a depraved Soviet psychic who can torture the ghosts of the deceased, who stands to inherit the mantle of the Undead. This is one of Lumley's finest novels, and one of the greatest works in horror fiction. It is very brittish, (nothing wrong with that) and it crosses many genres while never forgetting its roots in horror. This book spawned a huge series of books, but this one is by far the best. You'll never think about vampires again the same way.

I'm not a huge fan of Horror, with this series being one of the most important exceptions. Back in the 80's, a friend of mine turned me on to Necroscope, just after it had gone paperback. I loved it, and faithfully read everyone until the mid 90's. After marrying, I simplified my life, and one of the ways was to get rid of many of the books I hadn't read in years. I gave them to my brother in law.
In talking with a friend at work, I got to thinking about this series again, and recently borrowed my books back from Bro.
Simply put, I had forgotten how fun, enjoyable, and just plain great to read these books are. Sure, there are problems with the books, but this one, which started it all, is great. It's not even my favorite!
Lumley's taking of the old vampire myth and 'updating' it to make them a fearsome symbiotic creature, while explaining many of the powers of vampires, is sheer brillance in it's simplicity. To put it another way: why didn't I think of this!!
This is a great book that's tense, well-developed, and a great, great read. And, 15 years later, you might just like it even more!!!
