A struggling author must confront the dreadful secrets of his famous family's past
 
Two men argue in the low light of one of nineteenth-century New York's vilest bars. One is an aristocrat, clearly slumming, while the other, in appearance no better than the gutter-trash around him, is the finest author of his age. The wealthy man is Hudson Usher, come to berate Edgar Allen Poe for using Usher's family history as fodder for his most famous story. The house of Usher has not fallen, Hudson boasts. It will endure into the centuries.
 
One hundred and fifty years later, the Usher line persists. The newest heir is Rix Usher, a hack horror writer whose ailing father has just called him back to the family's North Carolina estate. To become the new Usher patriarch, Rix must confront a Gothic mystery more twisted than anything even Poe could have imagined.
