A twig snaps in the mist and you spin to face lantern eyes and slavering jaws. Most would panic, run, and within moments die. But not the monster hunter. Reflexes like coiled springs unleash with fury into the beast and the never-ending struggle between hunter and nightmare begins with blood…

Use Enough Gun, Blood Trails and Doomsday. Divided into four sections beginning with The Werewolf Hunters and following with The Vampire Hunters, The Spirit Hunters and The Monster Hunters, these adventures take us on hunts through misty forests, foggy streets, old west deserts and snow covered peaks and describe almost every monster in the book, some expected, and some not.

Creatures will die. Hunters will die. But no one will go without a fight.

The Nonesuch and Others

The Nonesuch and Others features a new Brian Lumley hero, the Man With No Name. As stated in the introduction, the Man With No Name “is just an innocent bystander who happens to be standing by in the wrong place at the wrong time: a witness to terrifying occurrences, monstrous events, who can never be one hundred percent positive that the things he has experienced are real. And why not? Because a man who sees pink elephants might as easily see just about anything.”

Neither hero nor anti-hero, the Man With No Name is narrator of the three stories in this collection, but in The Nonesuch he’s at least seen to be brave if not actually heroic. However, “if you the reader were confronted by the bizarre, inexplicable nonesuches whose paths tend to cross his in the following stories…well, how brave would you be?”

From the Introduction:

This pretty much is what the title says. Many of the stories/novellas here will have only been done in limited print runs, such as in fanzines, magazines, pamphlets, special editions or online magazines.

It’s a mixed genre of stories and these are what Brian considers the best of the rest of the stories in his body of work. We’ve got 111,000+ words in this collection so that means lots of enjoyment in what is likely the last collection coming from Brian.
