Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
07/21/2014
Execution doesn't match concept in this uneven anthology, which includes Poe's "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" and nine stories inspired by that classic tale introducing C. Auguste Dupin, the prototypical eccentric sleuth, whose brilliance is chronicled by an admiring sidekick. In Mike Carey's sly and witty "The Sons of Tammany," easily the volume's best entry, political cartoonist Thomas Nast narrates Dupin's experiences in 1870 New York City investigating the death of 20 men working on constructing the Brooklyn Bridge. While the authorities are quick to write off the fatalities as accidental, Dupin quickly ascertains the truth and the motive behind the crimes. Given that Dupin was created to be the master rational problem-solver, readers may be disappointed that some selections are thrillers rather than whodunits. Other contributors include Clive Barker, Simon Clark, Joe R. Lansdale, Elizabeth Massie, and Lisa Tuttle. (July)

    Paul Kane & Charles Prepolec in their book, ¿Beyond Rue Morg

    Paul Kane & Charles Prepolec in their book, “Beyond Rue Morgue” published by Titan Books have edited an anthology of stories based around the very first mystery detective, Le Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin, created by Edgar Allan Poe.




    From the Back Cover:  Further Tales of Edgar Allan Poe’s 1st Detective




    Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Murder in the Rue Morgue” introduced the world to its first literary detective, Le Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin.  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!




    Featuring original stories from Steve Volk, Lisa Tuttle, Simon Clark, Joe R. Lansdale, Elizabeth Massie, Ed Gorman, Jonathan Maberry, Yvonne Navarro, Weston Ochse and Clive Barker.




    Before there was Sherlock Holmes there was Le Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin.  Sadly Mr. Poe only featured him in three stories, the first of which is included in this volume. Paul Kane & Charles Prepolec have rescued us from this Dupin vacuum and given us nine new stories.  Are all of them great?  No.  They range from great to ah okay.  That is my opinion yours may be different the good news is we have nine new stories no matter how we judge the quality.  There are some wonderful mysteries presented here and great fun to read and try to solve.  I say try to because I think only Dupin or his genealogy can solve these crimes.   I assure you if you are a Sherlock Holmes fan then you will enjoy these stories.  If you are a Dupin fan then you are going to be thrilled.  I hope that Titan will bring us more anthologies like this one.




    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Titan Books.   I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
