Richard Garrison, a Corporal in the British Military Police, loses his sight while trying to save the wife and child of millionaire industrialist Thomas Schroeder from a terrorist bomb. While Garrison is recovering from his injuries, Schroeder makes him an offer the young man cannot refuse-refuge at Schroeder's luxurious mountain retreat and rehabilitation from the best doctors who can treat Garrison's blindness and if not cure him at least teach him a new way of life.

But Thomas Schroeder has a secret. He is dying and determined not to lose his life. The doctors tell him his body cannot be saved. But about his mind? Garrison's healthy young body would make an excellent replacement for Schroeder's failing corpus, if the machines to perform the operation can be perfected in time.

Garrison has no secrets of his own. Since the bombing that caused a loss of his sight, Garrison has become aware of new abilities slowly developing in his mind: mental powers he is beginning to master; strengths Schroeder cannot expect.
Richard Garrison and Thomas Schroeder, two strong-willed men locked in battle for the greatest prize-life itself.

Twenty years ago, the horror world was forever altered by the publication of Necroscope. An instant classic, Brian Lumley's astonishing feat of imagination spawned a universe which Lumley has explored and expanded through more that a baker's dozen of novels and novellas. Millions of copies of Necroscope and its successors are in print in a dozen languages throughout the world. Nominated for the British Fantasy Award, Necroscope has inspired everything from comic books and graphic novels to sculptures and soundtracks.

This new edition of Necroscope uses the author's preferred text and includes a special introduction by Brian Lumley, telling how the Necroscope saga came to be. It also includes chapter ornaments by Hugo-Award-Winning artist Bob Eggleton, long identified with Lumley's blood-sucking monsters.

As a classic, Necroscope rightfully claims a place in the Orb trade paperback list, for scholars of the field and the dedicated Lumley collector. And also for all the people who have read more than one mass market copy of the book to tatters.

Harry Keogh is the man who can talk to the dead, the man for whom every grave willingly gives up its secrets, the one man who knows how to travel effortlessly through time and space to destroy the vampires that threaten all humanity.
In Necroscope, Harry is startled to discover that he is not the only person with unusual mental powers--Britain and the Soviet Union both maintain super-secret, psychically-powered espionage organizations. But Harry is the only person who knows about Thibor Ferenczy, a vampire long buried in the mountains of Romania--still horribly alive, in undeath--and Thibor's insane "offspring," Boris Dragosani, who rips information from the souls of the dead in a terrible, ever-lasting form of torture.

Somehow, Harry must convince Britain's E-Branch that only by working together can they locate and destroy Dragosani and his army of demonic warriors--before the half-vampire succeeds in taking over the world!

Brian Lumley is an international horror phenomenon, with books published in thirteen countries, including China, the Czech Republic, Germany, Japan, Russia, and Spain. More than two million books have been sold in his Necroscope series alone, but that barely taps the potential of this wildly imaginative author. Lumley's horror often crosses the dividing lines between fantasy and horror or between science fiction and horror. The Psychomech trilogy, of which Psychamok is the conclusion, is a perfect blend of science fiction, adventure, and horror, combining in a fast-paced whirlwind of a story that leaves the reader doubting the evidence of his or her own senses.

Richard Garrison was once a corporal in the British Military Police, until a terrorist's bomb destroyed his eyesight and his career. Repaying Garrison for saving his wife and child from the blast, millionaire industrialist Thomas Schroeder introduced him to the Psychomech, an amazing machine that could either gift its users with astonishing mental powers-or destroy them utterly.

Having successfully harnessed the Psychomech, Garrison discovered the Psychosphere, a strange plane of existence where mental abilities were all. Thought became intent, word became deed, and Garrison became like unto a god.

Two decades later, Garrison is utilizing his unique powers to explore the universe. On Earth, his son, Richard Stone, is happily in love, until his beloved falls victim to "The Gibbering," a plague of madness that destroys men and women by destroying their minds. There is no obvious cause. There is no cure. There are no survivors.

When Richard Stone himself is infected by the Gibbering, the mental powers he inherited from his father enable him to defeat the madness, at least for a while. Then, to his horror, Stone discovers that the Psychomech has run amok and that the Gibbering is the result! Even though the insanity it creates batters his struggling mind, Stone realizes he is the only man with the knowledge and power capable of destroying the berserker mind-machine.

The son of Garrison is at war with Psychomech. Who will survive the final
battle, man or machine?

Horror, fantasy intermingled with the dark reality
During a stormy night, the Storyteller, sitting by the fire of a stake, inside a strange cabin, lost in a creepy woods of dead leaves, that seems taken from the nightmares of the craziest dreamer of stories, he tells his stories to all those who arrive at the cabin in search for shelter. Fist night: THE DARK REALITY. The stories narrated during the first night dig into the deepest of the human soul. They are horror and fantasy tales under which there is hidden a dark reality, stories in which the true evil lies locked inside the men ́s hearts. A patina of uneasiness, that will not abandon us at any moment during the reading, will adhere to our chest, while the errant minstrel rips story by story the mysteries and truths of the human nature, intermingling them with a powerful imagination and an overflowing fantasy. They will be cruel tales, but provided with not very few doses of sweetness, hidden among the shadows, like flowers under a cluster of bad weeds that try to soffocate their beauty.

The music floods in the room with sweet notes of heat, lust and sensuality. The old jukebox makes the needle to vibrate on the furrows of the old vinyl disc, making magic to happen. The torn voice of a beautiful singer, dead long ago, sings forgotten songs in the language of love.
There ́s a rain of red roses, carefully spread on the bed, drawing with tenderness a heart, its penetrating fragrance invades the cabin, built at the banks of a crystalline lake, situated in the deepest spot of a thick forest. The fine crystal glasses, full of a good red wine, wait on the table, where an exquisite meal steams.
The dim light of the candles and the warm shinning, provoked by the playful flames of the fireplace, create on the walls a wonderful shadow dance, getting the pe
