Brian Lumley, author, born 12/2/1937. Known for Necroscope series as well as various other outstanding horror/scifi titles. Served in the Germany based Corps of Royal Military Police.
At an early age, Brian Lumley published in a number of Arkham House anthologies. Projects included the likes of: Beneath the Moors, The Caller of The Black and The Horror at Oakdeene. By nature of his love for the works of Lovecraft, Lumley set many of his early works to the echo of the Lovecraft archaic style of adjectival writing.
But the Brian Lumley breakthrough came with the 1984 crafting of Necroscope®, a graphic horror featuring Harry Keogh as the man who speaks with the dead. Afterward came:
Demogorgon, Dreamlands, and then a return to the man with dead speak, Harry Keogh. But there was yet another gap between Necroscope II and Necroscope III. But that’s allright, for in the mean, we reaped: Wamphyri!
Bestsellers in the USA, Lumley’s books quickly accumulated one million sales with a lead toward two million. The success of previous Keogh-based works brough about the massive Lumley Vampire World Trilogy. It’s a horror collection totaling over 3/4 million words.
Thirteen countries and counting have now published, or are in the process of publishing these and other Lumley’s novels and short story collections. In the US alone, Brian Lumley books have topped sales of over three million copies.
When they’re not travelling, the Lumleys keep house in Torquay, Devon, England…
