About this title
Edited by Brian Lumley and multiple Bram Stoker Award winner Stanley Wiater, The Brian Lumley Companion is an indispensable guide to the life and works of Brian Lumley. The Companion is illustrated with photographs from the author’s private collection and full-color reproductions of Hugo Award–winning artist Bob Eggleton’s eye-catching cover art for Lumley’s works.
Contributors to The Brian Lumley Companion include some of today’s most noted experts on horror fiction, including W. Paul Ganley, founder of Weirdbook Press and two-time winner of the World Fantasy Award; Stephen Jones, coeditor of Horror: 100 Best Books and winner of multiple World Fantasy, British Fantasy, and Bram Stoker Awards; Robert M. Price, author of H. P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos and one of the most respected analysts of Lovecraftian fiction; Robert G. Weinberg, an acknowledged specialist in weird fiction, and Stanley Wiater, host of the TV series “Dark Dreamers.”
In The Brian Lumley Companion, Lumley aficionados will find an overview of Lumley’s career, from his first short fiction up to the present day; essays comparing Lumley and H. P. Lovecraft, a lengthy interview with the author that delves into the heart of Lumley’s relationship with the writers and editors who inspired him and the fans who support him, and analyses of Lumley’s short fiction and novels. An interview with Bob Eggleton gives insight into the development of his striking covers for the Necroscope series and other Lumley works.
This companion also includes complete listings of the first publications of each of Lumley’s novels, short fiction, and poetry. Major attractions are the detailed concordances that focus on individual novels and series, including the three Psychomech titles, the Dreamlands and Primal Lands series, and each volume in the Necroscope series.
As a special treat, The Brian Lumley Companion includes three short short stories by Brian Lumley, works that have never before appeared in book form.

"I'm impressed with Lumley's talent. He's obviously one of the best writers in the field.” --John Farris
"Lumley's strength is in his jovial voice. Lumley's love of his pulp-horror subjects is gleefully apparent. He revels in stories within stories and convoluted histories. He writes in the grand style of the serial.” --San Francisco Chronicle
