Necroscope III: The Source.... This whole series takes the world of vampires and completes it. Where they came from, why they exist, how you really kill one, how they reproduce, why the gypsies are so closely associated with them and why they do what they do. The series is 100 times better than all other vampire books combined. Well Done Mr. Lumley, well done.(This book was my favorite of the first 5 in the series)

Necroscope III: The Source Paperback – September 1, 1989

The series began with a portal into a distant dimension. In The Source, Brian Lumley begins to explore the origins of the Wamphyri manifestation on Earth. The tale picks up years after Harry left E-Branch. The search for his missing son and family is in effect. But now, Darcy Clarke, the new head of E-Branch, has need for Harry’s unique set of “dead speak” skills.

On investigation of a new Russian base, Harry uncovers the consequences of a “blowback” from a high powered photon beam into an atomic pile. There is now a new “Grey hole” in space time. Russians have been sending people through the one-way passage. But alas, monsters into this earth have emerged from self-same “Grey hole.”.

Traveling through a parallel grey hole in Romania Harry enters the source world of the Vampires, a world known as Starside/Sunside, wherein Vampire overlords prey on gypsy inhabitants, and wherein his now adult son (his son having used time travel as well as interdimensional to avoid Harry) is infected as a Vampire/Werewolf and besieged by the world’s Vampire Masters as he seeks desperately to protect both himself and the world’s people without losing what remains of his own humanity in the process.

Harry and Harry Jr use the sun to destroy the Vampire lords. In the process Harry Jr is horribly wounded by the sun. Harry Sr. spends time with the only vampire Lord that was not banished to the Icelands, Lady Karen. She is struggling with her remaining humanity. Harry cages her in a room in her castle after destroying or freeing all her servants. After starving her for many days he is able to lure out her Vampire leech and kills it. The Lady Karen commits suicide, because she has known what it’s like to be Wamphyri. The book leaves off with Harry Jr. becoming aware of Harry Sr. watching him with his mind blocked off from his powers.[1]

About the Author
Brian Lumley

Image Author, Brian LumleyBRIAN LUMLEY,  Author SciFi and Horror

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...
