Short Stories and a Novella

Brian Lumley

Tor Books

The Whisperer and Other Voices offers readers a complete short novel, The Return of the Deep Ones, as well as eight short stories from the dark imagination of Brian Lumley. Here are several of Lumley's best H. P. Lovecraft-inspired tales—including "The Statement of Henry Worthy," "The Luststone," and "The Disapproval of Jeremy Cleave"—all of which, as Publishers Weekly noted, are "as punchy and direct in their approach to horror as the author's blood-curdling Necroscope novels . . . The tone and temper of these tales [are] satisfyingly consistent with his novels."
