Brian Lumley's famous Harry Keogh is back for more paranormal action in the author's latest, Necroscope: Harry and the Pirates. The book is actually two novellas and one very short story, involving Old Man Death and an early encounter with The Necroscope. For long time fans, and even those new to the story, this collection contains three stories previously unpublished in the United States. But that's not necessarily a good thing, as the stories' brevity and rushed pacing make these tales seem a bit thin.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Harry Keogh, the first Necroscope, is arguably Brian Lumley's greatest creation.  In the Necroscope series, readers saw Harry learn to use his powers to talk with the dead and travel instantaneously to any point in space and time.  They saw him take arms against the evil, twisted, metamorphic alien vampires who sought to feed off humans and enslave mankind.  They saw him suffer a great personal loss and then recover his family, and later his humanity, through a new love.  And they saw Harry wage the grimmest battle of his lifeagainst the vampire he himself was becoming!

Even after Harry's story was done, Brian Lumley continued to write books about Harry's legacythe other Necroscopes who inherited his weird talents.  But Harry himself would not go quietly into that darkness that lies beyond an author's imagination . . . and now Brian Lumley has written three new novellas about Harry and his supernatural adventures, which are published for the first time in the United States in Harry and the Pirates.
