DescriptionWho corrupted Justin Gravesend, body and soul?
Victorian London, a powerful but dangerous occult society, and a nightmarish brothel all seduce the youth who would one day build Harrow, house of infinite hauntings. A gas lamp supernatural gothic right out of "the Marquis de Sade and Charles Dickens...Scintillatingly brilliant."* WARNING: Not for the faint of heart! "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." -- FeoAmante.com Reviews. A short and very disturbing novel (or novella), 140 pages in print. Set in the British Isles. "...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.
