It's only a few months ago that I finally got round to reading Brian Lumley's Necroscrope, his 1986 novel that began a long series of interrelated Vampire stories that still continues today and has spawned offshoots galore. Lumley has built a huge audience for the adventures of Harry Keogh and this release from Solaris will delight them all.
"Harry Keogh makes his long-awaited return as the Necroscope in these two novella length stories. Set during the fan-favourite Lost Years era of Keogh's career, these tales see the Necropscope do battle with horrors both real and imagined, eternal and ethereal. In For The Dead Travel Slowly, Harry Keogh's encounter with an old school friend leads to a fight for his very soul against an ancient evil lurking in the woods. Harry and the Pirates finds the Necroscope hearing the confession of a long-dead pirate but is all as it seems or is Harry being taken for a fool?"
