    Never More...

    Time for my Poe fix, it's been a while but I'm going to have to read The Tell Tale Heart. That one gets my heart pumping (forgive the pun) but it's my favorite and I love how grotesquely comforting it makes me feel.

    Bloody Brilliant...literally

    Edgar Allen Poe is, in my mind, one of the most brilliant authors. There is just no other way to describe his work. What I admire most is his willingness to explore the dark, and psychotic part of the human psyche...in depth. There are very few things that I admire more than a...

    He is my favorite writer of all time.

    I have a collection of his complete works. His works are ****** up, maniacal, and incredibly dark. Most days this is the perfect description of who I am. I call this side of myself, my Inner Poe. My Inner Poe is what I am trying to get rid of or, more likely, tame.

    Classic Horror

    I read The Tell-tale Heart when I was ten years old, and was an instant Poe fan. I loved his stories and how slow and dreadful they were.... how intricate his descriptions were... how creepy his settings were. I have his entire collection in my library.

    There is a fatal trick to his intelligence

    Edgar Alan Poe, in my opinion, was the best writer of mystery and horror of his day.  It is all too sad that IN his day he didn't receive the recognition he deserved.  If you are a Poe fan and have read the story of his life, the general opinion is that he died alone...
