Book Description

Richard Garrison, a corporal in the British Military Police, loses his sight while trying to save the wife and child of millionaire industrialist Thomas Schroeder from a terrorist bomb. While Garrison is recovering from his injuries, Schroeder makes him an offer the young man cannot refuse- refuge at Schroefer's luxurious mountain retreat and rehabilitation from the best doctors who can treat Garrison's blindness, and, if not cure him, at least teach him a new way of life.
But Thomas Schroeder has a secret. His is dying and determined not to lose his life. The doctors tell him his body cannot be saved. But what about his mind? Garrison's healthy young body would make an excellent replacement for Schroeder's failing corpus, if the machines to perform the operation can be perfected in time.
Garrison has secrets of his own. Since the bombing that caused the loss of his sight, Garrison has become aware of new abilities slowly developing in his mind: mental powers he is beginning to master, strengths Schroeder cannot expect.
Richard Garrison and Thomas Schroeder, two strong-willed men locked in battle for the greatest prize - life itself.

Product Description


Thomas Schroeder is a fabulously rich industrialist. He has money and power but now he wants a new body for his immortal mind. Richard Garrison is a young soldier waking from a strange dream. When he meets Thomas, his life changes into a fantasy of wealth, sex and power.

3.0 out of 5 stars psycohomech 6 Dec. 2007
As a great fan of brian i was a little surprised with this book,,, i didnt think that it had much going for it. There was no shocks no gripping tension. I only finished the book because i was ill in bed and didnt have anything else to read..You know what the ending will be like half way through so it sorts of spoils it and you think why bother,

Okay, I'm going to say some things in this review that some people might feel are unkind - so I want to preface that by making it clear that I am a great admirer of Brian Lumley. He writes some really good stuff, particularly the Necroscope series. However, like all authors, he ain't perfect, and some of his imperfections show up rather vividly in Psychomech.

Lumley's strengths lie in his intriguing concepts, memorable characters, and deceptively intricate plots with logical chains of causality. His main weakness is dialogue, and to be fair, the dialogue in this novel stinks. Not only is it wooden, over-expositiony, and melodramatic, but it just doesn't build character well. I also got tired of breathy female characters crying 'Oh, Richard!' or 'Oh, Gareth!' We also have to put up with male characters slamming their fists into their palms. And when, in one such fist-palming episode, a character cries, 'God damn!' I almost fell about laughing. Adam West and Burt Ward sprang to mind.

Enough unkindness, however honest it might be.

Psychomech is not the worst novel you will ever read. For me, it reads a little bit like a dress-rehearsal for Necroscope: The major themes are all there; ESP, teleportation, high-technology versus the paranormal, metempsychosis, father-son relationships, fear of death, life after death, etc. Furthermore, some of the lesser motifs appear; the swamp, the alien landscape with strange rock formations, there are even mentions of vampires! I can imagine that these themes were eating away at the author when writing this novel, but they finally came to a head with the brilliant Necroscope.

The characters in Psychomech are all memorable, although none of them are in any way nice (possible exception of Vicky).
