Overview

Dedicated to master dream-weaver, Edgar Allan Poe

Nevermore Tales of Murder, Mystery and the Macabre is an homage to the great American writer, the incomparable Edgar Allan Poe, and a must-have for every fan of his work.

Compiled by multi-award winning editors, Nancy Kilpatrick and Caro Soles, Nevermore Tales of Murder, Mystery and the Macabre presents a tantalizing selection of imaginative stories by New York Times best-selling and prize-winning authors Margaret Atwood; Kelley Armstrong; Richard Christian Matheson; Tanith Lee; William F. Nolan; Nancy Holder; Christopher Rice; Chelsea Quinn Yarbro; Michael Jecks; Lisa Morton; J. Madison Davis; Barbara Fradkin, and many others.

The anthology consists of 21 original tales that blend supernatural and mystery elements in unique re-imaginings of Edgar Allan Poe's exquisite stories.

In addition to these amazing stories, we've added two bonus items:

BONUS 1 "The Opium-Eater" by David Morrell

Previously unavailable in print, now included here for the first time...... The Opium-Eater by the New York Times best-selling author, David Morrell, recipient of three Bram Stoker awards, finalist for an Edgar and Anthony award, winner of a Nero and Macavity award, and recipient of the Thriller Master award from the International Thriller Writers organization.

BONUS 2 "Edgar Allan Poe, Genre Crosser" an essay by Uwe Sommerlad

This essay adds an historical dimension to Nevermore as it enlightens readers to the fact that Poe's oeuvre went far beyond his fame as a writer of dark fantasy and supernatural tales. This well-researched essay traces the powerful influence of Poe in the literature of other countries as well as in the English speaking world. Poe is the father of the modern mystery story, but Sommerlad shows that Poe's reach extends to realms as diverse as science fiction and romance. Nevermore is a blend of what Poe imagined, a genre-less world of unique stories and re-envisionings.

  • Reviewer: Staff

This eclectic and delightful collection of original short fiction celebrates Edgar Allan Poes far-reaching influence on numerous genres and many well-known and respected writers, from his own contemporaries to modern-day stars. Asked by Kilpatrick and Soles to create Poe-like tales, 25 writers, including Margaret Atwood, David Morrell, and the late Tanith Lee, took to the page with obvious gusto, delivering such gems as Robert Loprestis Street of the Dead House, a heartbreaking exploration of The Murders in the Rue Morgue; Kelley Armstrongs waggish The Orange Cat, a new twist on its ebony cousin; and Christopher Rices Naomi, a gruesome update of The Tell-Tale Heart thats all too topical. Kilpatrick and Soles have amassed a cache of worthy tributes to a fundamental member of the horror and weird fiction pantheon. (Oct.)
