Titan Books has put together a collection of Dupin-inspired short stories by some of the best writers in horror including Clive Barker, Joe R. Lansdale, Jonathan Maberry, and more.

Experience the further exploits of Dupin as he faces enemies both human and otherworldly; follow the adventures of his grandson, the Pinkerton detective; learn the fate of Dupin’s great-granddaughter; discover how Dupin connects his creator, Poe, with Sherlock Holmes; and more!
