A Signing at the Rue Morgue!
FORBIDDEN PLANET is delighted to be hosting one of our trademark multi-author signings. At 1:00pm on Saturday July 27th, Forbidden Planet 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London will be playing host to: -
• Mike Carey • Simon Clark • Paul Kane • Lisa Tuttle • Stephen Volk
To promote the release of the fantastic BEYOND RUE MORGUE anthology (Titan Books), Forbidden Planet has gathered a host of authors into one event – an event to bring writers and fans together.
Edgar Allan Poe’s 1841 short story The Murders in the Rue Morgue introduced the world to the its first literary detective, Le Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin, and established many literary devices which would be used in future fictional detectives, including Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. Beyond Rue Morgue invites its authors to continue the exploits of Dupin, while retaining that touch of the strange and macabre for which Poe’s work is so well known.
This will be one of our trademark multi-author events, bringing our guests out from behind their tables and giving their readers a chance to meet them and talk to them about their work - and join us afterwards for drinks at the Spice of Life!
