9780312868673: Titus Crow, Volume 1: The Burrowers Beneath; The Transition of Titus Crow

The Titus Crow novels are adventure horror, full of acts of nobility and heroism, featuring travel to exotic locations and alternate planes of existence as Titus Crow and his faithful companion and record-keeper fight the gathering forces of darkness wherever they arise. The menaces are the infamous and deadly Elder Gods of the work of H.P. Lovecraft. Chthulu and his dark minions are bent on ruling the earth--or destroying it. A few puny humans cannot possibly stand against these otherworldly evil gods, yet time after time, Titus Crow defeats the monsters and drives them back into the dark from whence they came. Volume One contains two full novels, The Burrowers Beneath and The Transition of Titus Crow.

Review:

The two novels contained in the first volume of Titus Crow--"The Burrowers Beneath" and "The Transition of Titus Crow" (originally published in 1974 and 1975)--are a matched set marking the introduction of Brian Lumley's Sherlockian paranormal investigator, Titus Crow, and Crow's Watsonesque partner, Henri-Laurent de Marginy. Both tales are grounded in the Cthulu mythos originated by H.P. Lovecraft, but Lumley offers an effortless introduction to Cthulu for newcomers.

While Lumley is perhaps best known now for Necroscope, the Crow novels (which also include those collected in Titus Crow, Volume Two and Titus Crow, Volume Three) offer an early glimpse at the creative talents of a contemporary horror master. Crow is a fascinating character--an obsessed genius uncovering ancient gods in a late-20th-century world that is blind to its imminent destruction. At the same time, de Marginy, writing through epistles and journals, brings a naive immediacy to the narratives. Lumley's prose has a baroque feel that lends an antique patina to Crow's world (supposedly in the 1960s and '70s), and his blend of horror à la Lovecraft, adventure reminiscent of Edgar Rice Burroughs, and techno-science fiction with shades of Asimov is always pleasantly surprising. Titus Crow makes for solid and enjoyable reading that deftly crosses genres. It's a pleasure to have these novels in a readily available form again. --Patrick O'Kelley

From the Publisher:

"I'm impressed with Lumley's talent. He's obviously one of the best writers in the field." --John Farris

"A worthwhile read indeed. Titus Crow is an engaging adventurer. Lumley takes his cue from the Lovecraft mythos. It's a wild, over-the-top ride, but told with the kind of imaginative writing that gives readers the unique sensation of feeling their minds open with the power of the writer's vision. Lumley's Titus Crow tales are a welcome, refreshing return to a larger canvas of ideas." --Fangoria

"Those who enjoy being scared out of their wits will find plenty to like here. Lumley weaves horror, mystery, occultism, science fiction, and mythology into a wonderfully fascinating story. A wonderful reading experience." Rapport

"It's nearly impossible to stop reading....Fans of Lovecraft in particular are in for a real treat as Lumley presents a modern horror saga based on the Lovecraft mythos. Readers will remain immersed--and surprised--throughout. Highly recommended indeed." --The Bookwatch

"Lumley's style here is straight out of the classic pulp era, fast-paced and full of eerie landscapes and sinister plots. Titus Crow and his Watsonian sidekick, Henri Laurent de Marigny, face one danger after another with a mix of horrified fascination and grim determination. Lumley's settings are worthy of H.G. Wells as well as H.P. Lovecraft." --Publishers Weekly
