Harold Schechter

Historical fact and startling literary invention converge in this stunning novel by "America's principal chronicler of its greatest psychopathic killers" (The Boston Book Review). Praised by Caleb Carr for his "brilliantly detailed and above all riveting" true-crime writing, Harold Schechter brings his expertise to a marvelous work of fiction in the tradition of Carr's own The Alienist. Superbly rendering the 1830s Baltimore of Edgar Allan Poe, Schechter taps into the dark genius of that legendary author -- and follows a labyrinthine path into the heart of a most heinous crime.He is an aspiring writer, plagued by dreadful ruminations -- a man whose troubled nights are haunted by dreams of his angelic cousin Virginia. He is Edgar Allan Poe, a literary critic known for his uncompromising standards and scathing pen. His recently published attack on the autobiography of Colonel David Crockett, U.S. congressman and celebrated American hero, has brought the indignant frontiersman -- unexpected, uninvited -- to the chamber door of Poe's private sanctum. Neither man is prepared for where this fateful meeting will take them: on a quest for a killer through the city's highest and lowest streets and byways.In a modest boarding house, an elderly widow of sad circumstance has been found murdered by an unknown assailant. On the wall above her bed, scrawled in the victim's blood, is a single, cryptic word. But the meaning of the chilling clue is merely one piece in a complex puzzle that ensnares the writer and the politician in a twisted and deadly game. For the ghastly crimes, each more bizarre than the last, have only just begun.Combining the phantasmagoric voice of Poe's legendary tales with an historian's exactness, Harold Schechter hovers between fact and fiction, horror and passion, destiny and doom, while conjuring historical detail with uncanny precision. Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Poe's death, Nevermore is both a tour de force of narrative suspense and a dazzling secret history of one of American literature's unique and enduring figures.

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore! -- from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe At once an homage to one of America's greatest writers and a page-turning psychological mystery that is equal parts horror, humor, and romance, NEVERMORE is the story of Varen -- a Poe-fan and goth -- and Isobel -- a cheerleader and unlikely heroine. When a Lit. project pairs the two together, Isobel finds herself steadily swept into Varen's world, one that he has created in his notebook and in his mind, one where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. Isobel slowly learns that dreams can be much more powerful than she'd ever expected, and that pain and despair come in all shades. As labels of "goth" and "cheerleader" fade away, she sees more in Varen than a tall, pale outcast, and a consuming romance is braced against the ever-clearer horror that the most terrifying realities are those within our own minds. When Isobel has a single chance to rescue Varen from the shadows of his own nightmares, will she be able to save him -- and herself?

William Hjortsberg

In his first novel since the classic Falling Angel, William Hjortsberg returns to the labyrinthine world of mystery and horrific murder he has made uniquely his own.Set in 1920s New York City, at the dawn of the Jazz Age, Nevermore opens with the shocking discovery of a brutal double murder in a Hell's Kitchen tenement. The seemingly random attack baffles the police, but as the murder rate escalates, each new crime more grotesque and elaborate than the last, a shocking pattern takes shape. From the bloodcurdling screams of a one-eyed cat atop a decomposing corpse to a bottle-blond floating in the Hudson River, the unknown killer meticulously recreates grisly scenes out of the pages of Edgar Allan Poe's fiction - crimes that until now existed only in the famed author's macabre imagination.Meanwhile, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the brilliant creator of Sherlock Holmes, while touring America to promote the Spiritualism in which he passionately believes, finds himself plagued by visits from Poe's ghost. His unlikely friend Harry Houdini, the world-renowned magician (who takes personal and professional pleasure in debunking mediums - all the while secretly yearning for contact with the beloved soul of his deceased mother), may in fact be the murderer's true target. Both men fall under the spell of Opal Crosby Fletcher, a beautiful and seductive high-society clairvoyant. Convinced she is the reincarnation of Isis, the ancient Egyptian fertility goddess, she truly appears to have the startling ability to contact inhabitants of the spirit world. Opal knows entirely too much about the nature of the crimes, and she haunts Houdini's dreams in ways that are not entirely spiritual.As the noose tightens around Houdini, he is bound together with Sir Arthur and Opal in a thrilling knot of maniacal terror. Forces beyond their comprehension conspire to destroy all three, sweeping them into a bloody vortex of vengeance, madness, and death.

Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look. Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares. His life depends on it.

Nevermore ** contemporary romance meets Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" ** Love and loss. Passion and pain. I’ve always been a fan of Edgar Allan Poe because his work epitomized how one can be driven mad by the truth and freedom of those emotions. So, when I needed to put the finishing touches on my doctoral research on Poe, I returned to my hometown of Richmond, VA—a place Poe also considered home. In truth, I could’ve gone anywhere. But Jackson Parker was back in Richmond. Best friends since we were twelve, JP was my support system. Separated by life but connected by technology, our relationship always had a flirty undercurrent, but it wasn’t sexual. Although our attraction was mutual, our affection was platonic. Until it wasn’t. I didn’t know when it happened. I didn’t know why it happened. I didn’t know how it happened. But love and loss, passion and pain collided in September and when I found the truth in the madness, that set me free.
