I'm a huge fan of BRIAN LUMLEY'S NECROSCOPE series. I also like his TITUS CROW series and all of his other short stories. As a horror fan my entire life, there are certain genres that I like more than others. Lovecraft and POE are two of my favorite authors, and LUMLEY is a close third. Even as a kid, I never thought that vampires were that interesting or scary. The one horror movie that involved vampires that I liked and watched several times was "THE HORROR OF DRACULA". Any movie with CHRISTOPHER LEE and PETER CUSHING in it was always worth a watch. LUMLEY'S series the NECROSCOPE is different though, he depicts vampires in a different way, and in my opinion, it makes them pretty scary. The series involves a man who discovers that he can literally talk to the dead, that everyone dies, but a little of your" personality" survives death, and if he goes into any graveyard, he can communicate with the people buried there. That's how he discovers that vampires are real, and that they pose a threat to humanity, and that he must try to stop them. The books also involve the soviet union, british intelligance, and dead vampires. Very well thought out, each book( I've read the first 6) is about 500-600 pages long, but once you get into them, they're a fast-read. What's your opinion of LUMLEY'S work, are you a fan, or do your tastes go in a different direction ?
