In addition to his stellar "Necroscope "series, Brian Lumley is
highly regarded for his short fiction, for which he has won the
British Fantasy Award. "Beneath the Moors and Darker Places, " a
companion to "The Whisperer and Other Voices, "collects nine
lengthy exemplars of the best of Lumley's short works, many of them
unavailable for decades in any form.
The Cthulhu Mythos of the immortal H.P. Lovecraft provides
inspiration for much of Lumley's work, including "Dagon's Bell" and
"Big C," both included here. The explosive creation of a new
volcanic island off Iceland in 1967 led to "Rising with Surtsey," a
homage not just to Lovecraft but to the great August Derleth.
"David's Worm"--which takes an interesting view of "you are what
you eat"--was published in a "Year's Best Horror Stories" and later
adapted for radio in Europe.
The collection also includes the macabre "The Second Wish,"
published here for the first time with the author's original,
intended ending, and "The Fairground Horror," first published in
"The Disciples of Cthulhu" twenty-five years ago and not seen since
save for a small press edition.
The title tale, "Beneath the Moors, " a complete short novel, has
been unavailable in the United States since its first publication
by Arkham House in the early 1970s. It is considered to be one of
Lumley's strongest short works; Tor is proud to restore this and
the other pieces in this volume to Lumley's growing readership.
At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without
Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
