This distinguished book selling establishment pays homage to the late writer Edgar Allan Poe, master of the creepy and macabre.

Edgar Allan Poe 1809-1849

Don’t his eyes just pierce your mortal soul!?

Anyway, NeverMore Books is located in the quaint antebellum coastal town of Beaufort, South Carolina.

Beaufort’s claim to fame?  Edgar Allan Poe lived here for a couple of years during his short, tortured life.

The NeverMore Bookstore capitalizes on this local connection by its Poe-inspired decor. The raven, being front and center, is a nod to Poe’s most famous poem, The Raven.

Look at the little book in his mouth!

The name, NeverMore Books, is a reference to the the raven in the poem who terrorizes the protagonist with its constant repetition of the word “Nevermore.”

The unofficial slogan for the bookstore is “look for the raven on Craven!” because the store is located at 702 Craven Street. Cute.

The feel of the store is decidedly Gothic. And creepy.
