With his short story “The Murders In The Rue Morgue”, Poe gave rise to the first literary detective, Le Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin. 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. We’ve got an exclusive look ate Lansdale’s short story, “The Gruesome Affair of the Electric Blue Lightning”. The book will be on sale on July 26th, 2013.
Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘The Murders in the Rue Morgue’ introduced the world to its first literary detective, Le Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin, and established many literary devices used in future fictional detectives, including Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. Now Dupin’s legacy continues in brand-new tales of ratiocination, mystery, and the macabre. 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!
