The Clock of Dreams is the third novel in the Titus Crow novels and shows a big change in the narrative. Instead of the titular character, the protagonist is now Henri de Marginy. Having been bequeathed Titus Crow's TARDIS-like coffin and a magical cloak, he proceeds to go on a mission to rescue his friend and his friend's new wife from forces that have imprisoned them in the Dreamlands. Henri is a more grounded character than Titus Crow and more rounded. Those who expect a more traditional Lovecraftian set of scares will be disappointed as this is more a psychedelic sci-fi journey across the multiverse. Brian Lumley is clearly fascinated rather than appalled by the Cthulhu Mythos and there's a lot of beauty here instead of grotesques. I think every dedicated fan should check it out, though. If you don't mind the Old Ones being evil and the heroes being good as well as the former getting spanked badly ala Ghostbusters, this is definitely the series for you.
