HERO OF DREAMS:
Something vital is missing from David Hero’s comfortable, ordinary existence. One day is much like the next, simple, predictable…boring.
But the nights! Each night David Hero finds himself transported to a marvelous world where brave men and women battle terrible creatures possessed of cruel, dark powers.
Despite his fears, the Dreamworlds tempt David, drawing him farther and farther from the waking world. Here he finds noble warriors; beautiful, loving women; and challenges almost greater than he can imagine.
THE COMPLEAT CROW:
“He was tall and broad-shouldered, and it was plain to see that in his younger days, he had been a handsome man. Now…his hair had greyed a little, and his eyes, though still very bright and observant, bore the imprint of many a year spent exploring – and often, I guessed, discovering – along rarely trodden paths of mysterious, obscure learning.”
Mysterious, obscure learning….
To many thousands of listeners world-wide, Titus Crow is the psychic sleuth – the cosmic voyager and investigator – of Brian Lumley’s Cthulhu Mythos novels, from The Burrowers Beneath to Elysia.
But before The Burrowers and Crow’s transition, his exploits were chronicled in a series of short stories and novellas uncollected in the USA, except in limited editions. Now these stories can be told again. From Inception, which tells of Crow’s origins, to The Black Recalled, a tale of vengeance from beyond the grave, here in one volume, from the best-selling author of the epic Necroscope series, is The Compleat Crow.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Brian Lumley (born 2 December 1937) is an English horror-fiction writer.
Born in County Durham, he joined the British Army‘s Royal Military Police and wrote stories in his spare time before retiring with the rank of Warrant Officer Class 1 in 1980 and becoming a professional writer.
In the 1970s he added to H. P. Lovecraft‘s Cthulhu Mythos cycle of stories, including several tales and a novel featuring the character Titus Crow. Several of his early books were published by Arkham House. Other storiespastiched Lovecraft’s Dream Cycle but featured Lumley’s original characters David Hero and Eldin the Wanderer. Lumley once explained the difference between his Cthulhu Mythos characters and Lovecraft’s: “My guys fight back. Also, they like to have a laugh along the way.”
Later works included the Necroscope series of novels, which produced spin-off series such as the Vampire World Trilogy, The Lost Years parts 1 and 2, and the E-Branch trilogy. The central protagonist of the earlier Necroscopenovels appears in the anthology Harry Keogh and Other Weird Heroes. The latest entry in the Necroscope saga isThe Mobius Murders.
Lumley served as president of the Horror Writers Association from 1996 to 1997. On 28 March 2010 Lumley was awarded Lifetime Achievement Award of the Horror Writers Association. He also received a World Fantasy Awardfor Lifetime Achievement in 2010.
