Hey there! Thanx for that, Id love to get into something new to read, my fav reads are anything by Stephen King and Brian Lumley! Ive read the Necrscope books over and over. So how are the reads on the books you've mentioned? Do they have the same feel as the others? I just love how he goes into all the details in his storys, it just makes my imagination run wild and thats what I love the most when reading his storys. Have you heard about the "movie"?!?! Now that is some very exciting news!! =)

about Khai of Khem, you read the sci-fi interview with Brain ?
well, he said it all, Khai has every thing except the kitchen sink. not really like any of his other work i think it's his best...next to necroscope.
House of Doors and Maze of Worlds...are about your worse fears. it's been awhile, a long while since i've read them.
these two reads [to start with] will show you how versatile Brian can be.
then you got Titus Crow books, the Dream Land books and another favorite of mine the Primal Land stories.
you can also do a search on these titles here on the board and see what others think, their opinions or just for fun.

Well much "Mahalos" for that! =) Mahalo in hawaiian means "thank you very much"!!
Well Im heading to Borders as we speak to see what I can get, Im also getting a Stephen King book, its from his Dark Tower series, its finally on paperback, which I can afford, lol!
I was over at amazon.com and was reading the first pages of the book, which I find very useful! So Im either going to start with the "Khai khem" or the "Titus Crow" books, its going to be which ever I lay my hands on, lol!!
Thanx so much for the help and the wonderful chats!! You know if your interested Im mostly at this forum where we chat about movies and tv shows, books, games, whatever comes to mind. If your interested let me know! =)

Titus Crow consist of 6 books and a bunch of short stories.
Dream Land, 4 books
these might be hard to come by at a book store, you'll have to try.
Khai is a re-release of an older book [Khai of Ancient Khem] only in hard back still, i think.
you'll most likely have to order any of Brians books, except necroscope.
i'm reading Wolves of the Calla right now.

Oh, and yes i've heard about the movie.there is also a web site, not up all the way but soon i hope. again you can check out this site for all kinds of conversation about the movie.
March 25th, 2005, 04:18 PM
Yeah went to Border, any books I want by Lumley would have to be ordered, they only have the Necroscope series. Ive also checked out website, its totally brand new nothing there YET! And as for the movie, I hope it will be soon but I bet its going to be awhile. So I check around here and see whats going on with the movie.
BTW..hows the book your reading?!?!
March 25th, 2005, 07:08 PM
sorry Lady Vee but we're going off topic, this thread is for Cthulhu Mythos.
it would be nice to see you stay around, join in on some of the other threads.there are some real sociable people around here.
BTW..the book is an inprovment over wizards and glass which was good but my lease favorite.
March 25th, 2005, 10:44 PM
Oh I plan to hang here as much as possible! =)
I need to pick up my copy which Borders is holding it for 3 days for me, but I aslo checked online and can get better prices.
March 26th, 2005, 04:50 PM
tott (totally off topic tops) ;)
Wizard and Glass was my favourite.
As for the Cthulhu Mythos, if you have anything specific you'd like to ask, ask away, althought I'm not around at the moment monday to friday, so if I don't immediately respond, I'm not being rude - I'm just not about!

Darn!! we got caught

This is my first time on this message board so I would like to introduce myself here!
I'm a fan of the Cthulhu Mythos for a number of years and I still find it a rich a rewarding subject. Also I noticed here the Book The Khai of Khem which I picked up and have just finished. I find it a very intersting adventure a little different than other novels by Brian Lumely, but got my attention from start to finish.
I hope to add my thoughts and views to this message board and make some firend along the way.

Welcome to the board anyway!

Titus Crow and the Dreamland Series are all great books. I love them, though I have loved everything Lumley has written. You can also find stories about the Cthulhu Mythos in some of his collections of short stories. I personally love Return of the Deep Ones and am rereading it right now.
The only Lumley books I have been able to find at bookstores are the Necroscope series, and even those are getting rare to see any more here. I have bought most of my books off Amazon.com. They have a lot of his books there, and usually at a better price.
March 10th, 2006, 03:29 PM
Thanx for that update, Im heading there right after this! =)
March 11th, 2006, 07:47 PM
You could also try Ebay as there is a special section for Lumley books. And if you are lucky they even might be signed as well.
March 12th, 2006, 04:14 PM
Wow!! Im heading there right after this! Thanx!
March 13th, 2006, 09:38 AM
Oh yes, I didn't think about ebay. I have not actually even looked there in a long time. All the new or re-release of Lumley books coming out recently has distracted me from looking there.
March 13th, 2006, 03:23 PM
Yeps I checked it out and its like a book store there! I had like Lumley fever, lol!! Anyways its very hard decide on what I want to read next, I want to read the books with a long drawn out storys like the Necroscope series. Do you have any suggestions?!?! =)
March 13th, 2006, 05:32 PM
I love the short stories and the Psychomech trilogy... Btut really, all he's written is worth reading.
Oh, 'long and drawn out' doesn't describe his stories, they're way too tightly written to say drawn out! lol
March 13th, 2006, 07:01 PM
lol! Yes very true but what I meant was how the books go on and on and thats what I love about the series of books, Plus I hated when the Necroscope series came to an end. =( Ive also read and have all the Psychomech trilogy, I didnt want that story to end either, lol!! So what would you recommend now?!?! =)
March 13th, 2006, 07:11 PM
But the Necroscope series has not ended! .. yet.
Why not just check out the books, read the descriptions and see what sounds good to you at this time. You will wind up reading them all anyway right? You can't get any bad Lumley.
March 13th, 2006, 07:51 PM
Lady Vee! It's been awhile.
Wondering if you ever gave Khai of Khem a try
March 13th, 2006, 08:11 PM
Yeps its sure has! =)
Nopes I havent YET, lol! Could you give me some 411 on the read, to help me decide?!?! =)
March 13th, 2006, 08:14 PM
Its not?!?! Ive read all the Necroscope series and then the last three, I think it was called "The Lost Years" not to sure, its been awhile since I reread them, lol! So whats after this? Do you have some inside scoops about whats coming if you do, some details puh-lease!!!!! lol! =)
March 14th, 2006, 07:01 AM
Get a couple of short story collections - you can dip into them at any time and some are deeply satisfying...
March 14th, 2006, 09:30 AM
There are 13 books in the Necroscope series http://www.brianlumley.com/necroscope/. Then there is a collection of short stories about Harry, Titus Crow, and David Hero and Eldin the Wanderer (from the Dreamland series) called Harry Keogh: Necroscope and Other Heroes! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0765308479/qid=1142335357/sr=2-2/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_2/002-0623013-7816815?s=books&v=glance&n=283155
And now there is a new Necroscope book coming out, The Touch. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0765316099/002-0623013-7816815?n=283155
If you really want someone to suggest a place to start I say go with Titus Crow.
March 14th, 2006, 03:08 PM
Thanx, I will look into those short storys! =)
March 14th, 2006, 03:11 PM
Ooooooh I want "The Touch"!! It sounds like a book I can sink my teeth into, hehehe! ;)
Juneis right around the corner and the price is nice!
Regarding the Titus Crow books, whats the story on that book?!?! =)
March 14th, 2006, 06:58 PM
Simplified version, Titus Crow battles the Elder Gods ... with a clock.
March 14th, 2006, 07:22 PM
Well then thats the book I will defintely look into next, now I just need to go shopping at either Amazon or Ebay so I can hopefully get the whole set of books so I can read them one after the other! Thanx! =)
February 11th, 2009, 02:43 PM
Does anyone know when the trade paperback edition of HAGGOPIAN will be released, and if it has the early Titus Crow stories that appeared in Brian's first Arkham House collection? I sold my copy of THE CALLER OF THE BLACK many years ago and I really want to re-enjoy those early Crow stories. Thanx.:)
