Morgan Freedom has been very busy it seems.

Necroscope had a brief tabletop RPG adaptation back in the 90s. I previously contacted the Lumley Estate about the likelihood of republishing the tabletop game in digital format, but I was told this isn't possible because of restrictions made by the movie deal. Oh well.

Anyway, I like Necroscope because it has psychic espionage. You'd expect that to be more common, but Necroscope is the only series I've been able to find that deals with psychic espionage. Or ESPionage as it's nicknamed in the books. And the series introduces a ton of other things on top of that, like vampires, other worlds, aliens, space magic, and Lovecraft references.

Necroscope... now there's a name I haven't heard in a long, long time.

I liked how horrific vampires were depicted, and the fairly disturbing work involved in necromancy (which basically involves tearing a corpse apart to find the secrets).

Calling it “necromancy” is technically incorrect, but considering how difficult research was when it was written…

Wikipedia calls this “anthropomancy,” but doesn’t properly cite its sources. Google provides other sources: https://occult-world.com/anthropomancy/

In defense, that's what Lumley calls it in the book and I was using his terminology. You're right of course (maybe it could be called anthroharuspicy? Or am I butchering languages again?).

In Lumley's defense, the term "necromancy" had developed negative associations according to Encyclopedia of Fantasy. It had become synonymous with black magic, so becoming synonymous with anthropomancy is the next logical step.
