The Psychomech series consists of 3 books:

I found these to be a bit scattered when reading them but entertaining all the same.

Plot ***Spoilers***
Richard Garrison is a corporal in the Royal Military Police who is disturbed by repeated nightmares involving a silver car, black dog, two men, a beautiful unseen girl, a Machine and a man-God and ending in an explosion. Thomas Schroeder, a German industrialist, along with his trusted companion and employee Willy Koenig, a

First... I love reading Brian Lumley. I'm disappointed that he hasn't gathered the kind of audience that he deserves in the United States. In many ways he's picked up from where H.P. Lovecraft left off, and complements the horror of Clive Barker. I've read a few books from Lumley's Necroscope series and find them very compelling, well written and very entertaining.

Psychomech so far, hasn't disappointed me. I'm enjoying the characters and the story. The only quibble that I have is some of Mr. Lum
Brian Lumley is one of the main authors who helped me to start reading when I was younger. I honestly just do not know what to say about this book. The only reason why I am giving it two stars is for two things. The writing and character development were good; however, the plot was average and honestly the synopsis of the book is completely different than what it is really about. It was so ridiculous at times, especially the vivid and out of place sex scenes, that I found it to be mortally agoni ...more

This book took quite a while for me to finish, not because it was bad but because it was so intense that I needed brakes from it sometimes. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this genre of writing. Brian Lumley is definitely one of the best!
Very different, but all Lumley's books seem to be. I didn't like Richard Garrison anywhere near as much as I loved Harry Keogh.
Jeffery Chatham
Well written and while confusing sometimes, I loved it. The trilogy as a whole was great and made me want to read even more of Lumley's books.
Michael Daniel
Different and out there, but not very well done. Lumley is an ex SAS officer, and his violent scenes are very nicely done. It is quite easy to ruin a scene with a poorly written confrontation or fight. Entertaining, but his later books (Necroscope) are far better.

อานคำโปรยปกหลังนึกวาเปนเรืองแนว Ghost in the machine. แตอานเรืองแลวกลับเปนแนวมนุษยพลังจิต Supernatural + Super-machine เครืองจักรขยายพลังพิเศษ คงตองเปลียนคำอธิบายเรืองหนอยละ

อานแลววางแทบไมลง ตองอานรวดเดียวจบไปเลย
Michael Hempstead
While not quite as page-turning as Lumley's Necroscope novels, like all his books, the final 100 pages keep you glued with your phone turned off.
way better than most of the random books I grab from the Science-Fiction section.

I enjoyed it quite a lot.
Not as good as I was expecting. Some interesting ideas, but seemed like only half a story.
Christopher King
Obviously one of his earlier works.
Not much to say about the book beyond that
Laurie Walstrom
started slow but finished very well.
Some psychic horror/sci-fi stuff.
Steve Homer
Bloody awful.
