Years ago this definition was used in the original Necroscope® printing in the UK by Grafton. (The jacket with the nasty half
flesh/halfbone skull and red spine.)

Why this definition never appeared in the US editions I don’t know … it would have certainly answered the question to all the US
readers who wanted to know then and still want to know now.

Here is Brian Lumley’s definition of a Necroscope® as taken from the inside of above mentioned book.

The following material is copyright © Brian Lumley (2013 to infinity and beyond). It is not to be used in any other publication
without express permission from Brian Lumley ... which won't happen as Necroscope® is a registered trademark

Tele- (Gk. tele: ‘far’.) A telescope is an optical instrument which enlarges images of distant objects. For example: the surface of the
Moon may be viewed as from only a few hundred miles away.

Micro- (Gk. mikros: ‘small’) A microscope is an optical instrument which makes small objects visible to the human eye.  Through a
microscope, a drop of ‘clear’ water is seen to contain countless unsuspected micro-organisms.

Necro- (Gk. nekros: ‘a corpse’) A Necroscope is a human instrument which permits access to the minds of the dead. Harry Keogh is a
Necroscope – he knows the thoughts of corpses in their graves.

The main difference between these instruments is this: the first two perform purely physical, one-way functions. They are incapable of
changing anything. The Moon cannot look back through the telescope; the amoeba does not know it is under microscopic scrutiny.

That’s Harry Keogh’s big problem: his talent seems to work both ways. The dead know – and they won’t lie still for it!
