Meet the Poe Boys

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be illustrating a new series of three books – ‘The Poe Boys’ – by Gordon McAlpine, to be published by Viking Press.

The series chronicles the madcap adventures of two twin brothers who just happen to be the great-great-great-great grandnephews of Edgar Allen Poe. The first in the series, ‘Meet the Poe Boys’ is due out in 2013.

When their pet cat Roderick Usher goes missing the Poe boys set out on a rescue mission, little knowing it’s part of a nefarious scheme by a dastardly nemesis with designs on the boys’ incredible abilities.

Expect flying monkeys, dead poets and dire warnings, an evil plan, a road trip, a sinister postcard and a very, very important spelling mistake. Oh, and a black cat, of course.

I’ll keep you up to date with things here as they unfold. It’s going to be gothic.

  1. That is such wonderful news. You are so talented and I’m over the moon on your behalf. Very well done! But what a long wait for us to get to buy it.

  2. I can’t wait to see how this progresses – it’s so exciting! I like the sound of the story and I think your illustrative style will suit it well. Congratulations again!

  3. Hey Sam, missed you last Saturday in York! Excellent news on the book deal, couldn’t have happened to a nicer chap. Your drawings are ok too 😉
