Return to the House of Usher(1996)
A novel by Robert Poe
Based on notes and nonfiction writings of Edgar Allan Poe, this dark contemporary novel begins an intriguing new series. John Charles Poe, a small-town reporter in Crowley, Virginia, drinks a lot of bourbon and works because he doesn't have to. The heir to the family fortune, he has just received the most unusual part of the Poe legacy--the casket. The wooden box contains the notes and personal papers of all the Poe man dating back to Edgar Allan. He has sworn not to divulge its secrets, but a call from his oldest friend, Roderick Usher, on the verge of a breakdown, may justify a broken oath.
