    Edgar Allen Poe has been a big influence on my

    writing. One of the first horror writers I got introduced to when I was young. His brilliance as a writer both in the short story format and poems cannot be over emphasized. Here is my list of his five greatest horror stories: 1. Cask of Amontillado 2. The Tell Tale heart...
