"Since reading Lumley's "Necroscope" series, I know that vampires really do exist!"—H. R. Giger
"Lumley excels at depicting heroes larger than life and horrors worse than death."—Publishers Weekly
"I'm impressed with Lumley's talent. He's obviously one of the best writers in the field."—John Farris
"An accomplished wordsmith, Lumley wields a pen with the deft skill of a surgeon, drawing just enough blood to titillate without offending his readers."—The Phoenix Gazette
"Lumley's strength is in his jovial voice, a diction that dominates the narrative. Lumley's love of his pulp-horror subjects is gleefully apparent. He revels in every telling detail, in stories-within-stories and convoluted histories."—San Francisco Chronicle
"Nightmarish in a manner obviously inspired by Lovecraft . . . long hard to find in the US. Lumley succeeds at spine-chilling creepiness. Juicy indeed—worthy additions to the mythos and the horror genre alike."—Booklist on Beneath the Moors and Darker Places

After five years away, mighty magician Teh Atht has returned to the Primal Land, having failed at his quest. He comes home seemingly empty-handed. At the same time that Teh returns 'home' Tarra Khash continues his hedonistic ways of wine and women until the ugly vampiric lamia Orbiquita bites him. The results of her teeth is to cause him to lose interest in females even as she prepares to give up immortality to become a desirable woman as she wants him. Evil sorcerer Black Yoppaloth plans to become immortal and rule eternal over the minion of the Primal Land he is on the brink of success with the only possible way to prevent his enslaving everyone is Teh and Tarra teaming up but the former is under a curse and the latter mistrusts all magic practitioners.------------------- Like its two Primal land predecessors (see THE HOUSE OF CTHULHU and TARRA KHASH: HROSSAK!), SORCERY IN SHAD is a collection of interrelated tales that fans of the series will enjoy as Brian Lumley brings the fine fantasy to a conclusion.. Though a few of the twelve tales seem more like sidebar fillers that do not enhance the theme, Mr. Lumley completes his delightful homage to the macabre world of H.P. Lovecraft¿s Cthulhu.---------------- Harriet Klausner
