Brian Lumley is an English author of fiction. He is best known for his works within the science fiction and horror genre. He was born December 2, 1937, near Newcastle. Interested in horror classics in his pre-teens, he always liked science fiction best. Lumley became interested in science fiction and macabre fiction by reading a short story by Robert Bloch in a British science fiction magazine.

Lumley went to serve with the RMPwhile young in Germany. Once he found a collection of Lovecraft stories, Lumley began to search for every piece of work by the author that he could find. This eventually ended with him contacting Lovecraft’s publisher Derleth to see whether he could purchase some volumes he was still missing.

He included some of his writing along with the letter and Derleth asked Lumley if he had anything solid that could be a part of a novel he was readying for publishing called Tales of the Cthulu Mythos. It was then that Brian Lumley began writing, and his career in fiction began. Derleth went on to include his short stories in anthologies and publish three of his novels, including Beneath the Moors with the others being short story collections and novellas. These early works mirrored Lovecraft’s style a bit, but Lumley would come to craft his own style.

Lumley did serve 22 years with the Royal Military Police and even was promoted to Warrant Officer. During that time he was able to write several novels. He retired in 1980 from the army and began to write a large amount. He began the Dreamlands milieu four books and the Psychomech trilogy too.

His breakthrough book became Necroscope, which featured the main character Harry Keogh who can speak to dead people. The popular book eventually went on to make up a bestselling series. Not realizing this at first, he wrote another standalone novel in 1984 to 1985: Demogorgon. The next year he completed the Dreamlands series and completed the third book in the Necroscope series in 1987. The first two books were published in the UK and was picked up as a trilogy in the United States, only it kept on going.

Necroscope IV: Deadspeak and Necroscope V: Deadspawn came soon after. By the end of the eighties, all of the financial worries from leaving the army had been put behind Lumley thanks to the success of his books. In just America alone, his books passed a million sales, reaching for two.

The success of this series led to his popular vampire trilogy and several other fictional series. He has also composed over a hundred novellas and short stories. Lumley first became a published author with his short story collection in 1971 and his first novel published was The Burrowers Beneath. He was awarded the HWA’s Lifetime Achievement Award as well as a Lifetime Achievement World Fantasy Award in 2010. The short story “Necros” by Lumley was adapted by Ridley Scott on his series The Hunger on Showtime Television.

Lumley has also received the World Horror Convention’s Grand Master Award for his work while being Guest of Honour in 1998. His book Necroscope has been optioned and re-optioned another four times to be a major film, which will include the original trilogy if the deal goes through. He is well traveled and has been to the states, Canada, France, Cyprus, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and a couple of the Greek islands and the Mediterranean. When not traveling, he lives in Devon, England with his wife. He thanks his dedicated readers for their support.

The Burrowers Beneath is the first book in the Titus Crow series written by Brian Lumley. It was first published in 1974. The theme of this novel considers whether or not people were the first intelligent beings on Earth that made themselves masters of this world or whether others there before them had the honor of doing so previously without their knowledge. It features the main character of Titus Crow, who is an investigator of the occult, and his companion de Marigny.

Could it be that before the human being came out of the old jungles that others were in charge of this world? When you think about the possibility of other beings coming here and dominating the planet for their own use, it’s not that absurd. Could aliens have come here and sent out their signals to the stars while using the planet and calling it their own? And can Crow and de Marigny survive being on the run from giant worm creatures from their encounter with a grandfather clock that can travel through space and time? It’s certainly possible in this intriguing novel from Brian Lumley.

Lumley follows in the footsteps of the science fiction master H.P. Lovecraft and takes on the torch to continue a tradition of the macabre, blending horror and science fiction along with suspense. Readers will be dying to know what happens in this exciting novel and so if you want to find out whether the real lords of the Earth are people or if they are waking up the landlords that have been sleeping all this time, pick up The Burrowers Beneath and find out for yourself!

The Transition of Titus Crow is the second book in the Titus Crow series by Lumley and deals with aspects of the Cthulu Mythos like its predecessor. The book begins with de Marigny being found ten years after the events of the first book– but with no memory of what happened. Crow contacts de Marigny sometime after he is filled in on what has happened and what an interesting group called the Wilmarth Foundation is doing to keep the Cthulu Cycle Deities at bay.

Crow is hurtled through time and space and in the course we find out what has happened all this time, and it is a lot. Among being pursued by the Hounds of Tindalos, visiting other universes, black holes, and galaxies, going into the future and way into in the past, fending off dinosaurs in the Cretacious and crash-landing through Earth’s history are just some of what he does. Find out what happens and see the grand storytelling abilities of Brian Lumley at their finest by picking up The Transition of Titus Crow!

    Brian Lumley cannot be heralded enough in my opinion for all of his work. To my mind, his envisionment of what vampires truly are is the aoex of the genre, and while reading his works, I was very pleasantly pleased to see that he sees the same connection between vampires and werewwolves that I always have.

    He is in my opinion, the finest writer of Lovecraftian inspirations there is, and his Titus Crowe character is a fantastic melange of Lovecraft, H.G. Wells, and Doctor Who one could ask for.

    The Necrosope series speaks for itself, and while I’ve often pondered (hoped) for a film version of it, I’ve come to think that the only chance there is of doing it justice, would be for each book to be an 8-12 episode long self-contained series on a platform like Amazon (etc.).
