    Lenore And The Conqueror Worm

    The first horror story that I ever read was The House of Usher. I had to read it for 8th grade English. I fell in love with the works of Poe that afternoon. We were given the weekend to read it but I found it so fascinating that I spent that Friday evening reading the entire...

    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...
