    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...

    Poe's Most Profound Writing (imo)

    WHATEVER doubt may still envelop the rationale of mesmerism, its startling facts are now almost universally admitted. Of these latter, those who doubt, are your mere doubters by profession — an unprofitable and disreputable tribe. There can be no more absolute waste of time...

    My Favorite Author

    EAP has always been my favorite author. Did a couple of research papers over his short stories in high school and in college. He is the quintessential tragic genious. The fact that he couldn't cope with life is due to the very symptoms that allow his work to bleed genius. The...

    A succulent desire. Filled with wildness fire. Tame it down, with devotion. Devour my peddle like flower. Don't be hasty, Like fine wine, Time decides such taste as mine.
