Publisher's Summary

"He was tall and broad-shouldered, and it was plain to see that in his younger days, he had been a handsome man. Now...his hair had greyed a little, and his eyes, though still very bright and observant, bore the imprint of many a year spent exploring - and often, I guessed, discovering - along rarely trodden paths of mysterious, obscure learning."
Mysterious, obscure learning....
To many thousands of listeners world-wide, Titus Crow is the psychic sleuth - the cosmic voyager and investigator - of Brian Lumley's Cthulhu Mythos novels, from The Burrowers Beneath to Elysia.
But before The Burrowers and Crow's transition, his exploits were chronicled in a series of short stories and novellas uncollected in the USA, except in limited editions. Now these stories can be told again. From Inception, which tells of Crow's origins, to The Black Recalled, a tale of vengeance from beyond the grave, here in one volume, from the best-selling author of the epic Necroscope series, is The Compleat Crow.

A great collection of short stories based on 1 guy

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I'm not familiar with the authors work but I really liked Titus and the whole Supernatural Sherlock Holmes and Watson that permeates the stories around him. Very enjoyable.


What other book might you compare The Compleat Crow to, and why?

I'd have to say Sherlock Holmes. It's not looking at Crime, instead he's dealing with the Supernatural but we have an intelligent, quirky main character who has his Watson tagging along as well.


What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I've listened to other books narrated by Simon. He's a great narrator and you can tell that he's got experience and he's got a great style as well as a good voice.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

That's not something I can answer with this collection. Some of the shorts appealed to me over others but that's not to criticise any of them as I really liked the book.
