Summary (From the publisher):

Vampire. Elder Gods. Nightmares. Mysterious elixirs. Wines capable of transporting the drinker - literally - to another world. Fossils that dream of rending flesh beyween their teeth. These wonders, and many more, spring from the fertile imagination of Brian Lumley.

Harry Keogh: Necroscope and Other Weird Heroes! collects eight long tales of four of Lumley's most popular creations: Titus Crow; David Hero and his companion, Eldin the Wanderer; and the original Necroscope himself, Harry Keogh, who is featured in three completely new stories, one of them a short novel. The other stories in this collection have previously only been published in the United Kingdom.

Titus Crow: Psychic detective, master magician, destroyer of the ancient Cthulhian gods. In Inception, we see the infant Titus at the moment his destiny falls upon him. In Lord of the Worms, a simple secretarial job lands Crow on a sacrifical altar. And in Name and Number, Henri Laurent de Marigny details a battle between Titus Crow and malevolent, occult winds that can rip living flesh from bone.

David Hero and Eldin the Wanderer: once men of the waking world, now agents for King Kuranes of the Dreamlands. Sips of The Weird Wines of Naxas Niss send the pair on a tumultuous journey from a buxom beauty's bed to the depths of a wizard's dungeon. Then, seeking his missing friend, David Hero boards an ill-fated airship that is home to The Stealer of Dreams.

Harry Keogh, Necroscope: vampire killer without peer, capable of conversing with the dead. A sudden windfall brings Harry to Las Vegas, where he meets Dead Eddy, a gambler who can't resist the temptation of one last big win - from beyond the grave! In Dinosaur Dreams, Harry's interest in fossils leads him to uncover the truth behind the death of a young amateur paleontologist...and to discover that it's not just dead people he can call on in a crisis. Harry's undying love for his mother leads him down a dangerous path in Resurrection.

Four of Lumley's greatest heroes. Three of his most popular worlds. Tales to chill and to delight. Open the book and be swept away.
