I recently started Brian Lumley's "Demogorgon"... again. Tried reading this damn book 4 or 5 times throughout high school, never got past the first few chapters.
I think it's just the fact that this book can't possibly be as good as his "Necroscope" saga...
In the bleak life and modern times
Under grey skies and electric light
Mortal men are living gods
More real than any god ever was
