Simon L'Furil, also known as the Sellsword Bard, travels with three companions: a mage from the feared country of Colta, a dwarf fond of strong drink, or any drink, that has a tendency to ax first and question later, and a seven foot tall Northman of the White Wolf clan, the age-old enemy of all dwarves. They have been up to every challenge thus far, but when Simon agrees to help a besieged duchess they will face a Necromancer for the first time, a Necromancer supporting a neighboring duke's army with the undead he controls.

Occult societies, murder, brothels, London, and a young debauched Victorian on the loose… From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Douglas Clegg comes "...a cross between the Marquis de Sade and Charles Dickens...Scintillatingly brilliant."* "Readers will find themselves enthralled by the early life and lessons of young Justin Gravesend...There is a richness to the prose in this book reminiscent of 'The Confessions of an Opium Eater' penned so long ago. Side by side, they might have been written by contemporaries, and that is the magic of Clegg's prose in this volume." -- Reviews. A short and very disturbing novel (or novella), 140 pages in print. "...A terrific prequel to the Harrow House novels as readers obtain an intriguing look at Gravesend through his late nineteenth century journal and a scholarly introduction to Necromancy...Together these segments give this strong 'coming of age' horror tale a deep Victorian Era feel. Fans of the series will treasure this brilliant work, while newcomers will go chasing after the rest of the series." -- The Best Reviews. *"...Like reading a cross between the Marquis DeSade and Charles Dickens.. [Clegg's] prose is scintillatingly brilliant in parts and I was sucked right into this squalid tale of black magic. ...the book is worth this little gem of horror literature..." - Alternative Reality Webzine. "Justin Gravesend's story is one of perversity and debauchery and his embracing of it. Clegg does not back away from the more unsavory elements, yet keeps the language of the time (presumably the late 1800s), so that sometimes it felt as if I were reading something from Boccaccio or the like. 'The Necromancer' is never anything less than compelling, and I finished this relatively short tale in two sittings." - Craig's Book Club Reviews. The man who created Harrow had a secret history. In The Necromancer, Douglas Clegg explores the story of Justin Gravesend's youth and his induction into the organization known as the Chymera Magick. From a Welsh village to the back alleys of London, university student Justin meets his destiny in the underworld known as The Pandemonium.

Salem, Massachusetts, 1692: The witch-hunts begin. Neighbors are turning on one another. A smallpox epidemic has broken out. People are dying. One man is responsible, a warlock of great power-The Necromancer-and he has just seduced one of Salem's purest women into a perdition that will haunt her the rest of her life. Using actual historical events as the backdrop for the fictional story of Reverend Ambrose Blayne and Susanna Harrington, it is a novel of passion, horror, love, and the cruelty which man is capable of. It is a deeply disturbing, often graphic depiction of those brutal and uncertain times. The novel, while primarily set in Salem, sprawls across Europe from witches being burned at the stake in Scotland to spiritual awakenings in the Roman Amphitheater and depraved Witches' Sabbats in the Harz Mountains of Germany. The series of events culminates in the warlock's summoning of a Lovecraftian demon which threatens to unknit the fabric of the world and an ending that will chill the reader's blood.

He is all but forgotten today, but in his time, British author GEORGE WILLIAM MACARTHUR REYNOLDS (1814 1879) was a veritable Victorian Stephen King whose penny dreadful serials were more widely read than the works of Dickens, and shocked delighted readers with their lurid tales of murder, intrigue, and supernatural doings.This horrible tale, first published in 1851 2, opens in the year 1510 in an actual Gothic hall, where a young lady of exquisite beauty has been terribly affrighted. From there flows a tale so fiendishly wicked at least to 19th-century sensibilities that even a King may find himself haunted... Fans of horror and students of the history of pulp fiction will be enthralled by this little-remembered novel, which Cosimo is proud to present here in a charming replica of an 1857 edition, complete with the original illustrations.

The continuing chronicles of the Second Neoluzian War. In "The Oath of the Necromancer," the tide of war rises against the good races of Neoluzia by the marauding armies of the Orcs from the north. The Orcs are led by Arkan Spiritstrike, a powerful Orc wizard who drives his forces to fulfill an Orc destiny designed over one thousand years ago. After the Veiled Institution restores Darius, David Parr is given the opportunity to return home to Earth, a place the Veiled Institution has declared a "forbidden world." Before he leaves, Parr is taken from his elven hosts by a disciple of the Veiled Institution so that he can be shown the true security danger in Neoluzia. Armed with this new information, Parr reluctantly decides to remain in Neoluzia so that he can find the great necromancer Termaplix, the last remaining hope for the salvation of the land. With his dark elven companions and a feisty dwarven paladin, David seeks to deliver this message tasked by Darius to the Salon of Enlightenment. Unknown to Parr however, the Orcs have planned to prevent his valiant party from leaving the elven forest of Frontentia alive and the stranger from Earth finds that he cannot escape The Second Neoluzian War.

She has never feared the walking dead. It's the power required to reanimate the dead that startles her, seduces her. The power that dwells inside her . . . and is growing. For Professor Ruby Montagne, being a necromancer has brought her nothing but heartache, and she walked away from that part of her life long ago. However, her quiet existence in San Francisco is shattered when she stumbles upon the body of a slain witch, and the supernatural community insists she transform him into a revenant to track the killer. But his murder was just the beginning, and Ruby soon realizes that the stakes are higher than anyone can imagine--and that revenants have nasty minds of their own. Now demonic creatures have escaped into the human world, and zombies once again walk the streets. For humanity's sake, Ruby forms an unlikely alliance with a witch, a revenant, and Ewan March, a demon warrior who sets her senses on fire. She's always distrusted demons, and Ewan is no exception.

But she suspects his job of patrolling the portal separating humans and demons conceals a dark and deadly past that may consume them both. With events spiraling out of control, Ruby unravels a plot that threatens the human and demon realms and puts Ruby's very soul in jeopardy. Because when the dead walk, no one is safe.

The start of a fantastic new series. Johannes Cabal has never pretended to be a hero of any kind. There is, after all, little heroic about robbing graves, stealing occult volumes, and being on nodding terms with demons. His purpose, however, is noble. His researches are all directed to raising the dead. Not as monstrosities but as people, just as they were when they lived: physically, mentally, and spiritually. For such a prize, some sacrifices are necessary. One such sacrifice was his own soul, but he now sees that was a mistake – it’s not just that he needs it for his research to have validity, but now he realises he needs it to be himself. Unfortunately, his soul now rests within the festering bureaucracy of Hell. Satan may be cruel and capricious but, most dangerously, he is bored. It is Cabal’s unhappy lot to provide him with amusement. In short, a wager: in return for his own soul, Cabal must gather one hundred others. Placed in control of a diabolical carnival – created to tempt to contentiousness, to blasphemy, argumentation and murder, but one may also win coconuts – and armed only with his intelligence, a very large handgun, and a total absence of whimsy, Cabal has one year. One year to beat the Devil at his own game. And isn’t that perhaps just a little heroic?

In a Massachusetts town, an evil wizard is about to come back from the dead and a young hero must fight to stop him . . . In the days of the Salem witch trials, the sleepy hamlet of Duston Heights had just one practitioner of the dark arts: the notorious necromancer Esdrias Blackleach. As the fever for witch hunting reached its terrible peak, Blackleach was accused of using powerful black magic against his fellow townsfolk. But just before he could be brought to trial, he dropped dead, escaping justice forever. Or so it seemed . . . Fast forward to the 1950s, the inquisitive young sleuth Johnny Dixon and his mentor Professor Childermass are getting ready to donate a box of Blackleach artifacts to the local museum when a descendant of the sorcerer shows up and attempts to steal his ancestor’s wooden hand. He has a fiendish plan to raise the old necromancer from the dead, and only Johnny and the professor can stop him and make the town safe from black magic forever. The Johnny Dixon stories, from the award-winning author of The House with a Clock in Its Walls, have been acclaimed for their “believable and likable characters” (The New York Times) and “spine-tingling” supernatural adventure (Publishers Weekly).
