Thomas Harris books.png

We are a collaborative encyclopedia focusing on the work of Thomas Harris, an American author best known for a series of best-selling suspense novels about his most famous character, cannibalistic serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

The first novel to feature Hannibal Lecter was Red Dragon, which sees the character in a more secondary role while Will Graham works on the Tooth Fairy case. The book was followed by The Silence of the Lambs, in which Lecter meets Clarice Starling as she investigates Buffalo Bill; Hannibal, continuing the relationship between Lecter and Starling; and Hannibal Rising, a prequel novel that explores Lecter's origins.

Aside from including information from the novels, this wiki also covers all five Hannibal Lecter film adaptations, many of which famously featured Anthony Hopkins in the role; Harris' books outside of the franchise (Black Sunday and Cari Mora); the television series Hannibal, starring Mads Mikkelsen as Lecter and Hugh Dancy as Will Graham; and new series Clarice, which premiered on February 11, 2021 and is now airing.
