Clive Barker Revisits Poe In This ‘Beyond Rue Morgue’ Excerpt [EXCLUSIVE]

Earlier this month, Titan Books celebrated one of writer Edgar Allan Poe’s great creations, Le Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin, the protagonist of the first known detective story, “The Murders in Rue Morgue.” In the anthology, “Beyond Rue Morgue,” a collection of writers returns to Dupin, spinning new tales of the macabre for the first detective–and one of those writers is “Books of Blood”/”Hellraiser” and “Candyman” creator Clive Barker.

After the jump, read an excerpt from his story, “New Murders in Rue Morgue.” “Beyond Rue Morgue” is available now in print and digitally from Titan Books.
