Edgar Allan Poe

Status: Bookseller Picks

 

This year Edgar Allan Poe turned 200.  What better way to celebrate the author who truly started the Horror and Detective genres than by reading his tales and poems. 

 

 

These two collection are the top of The Eerie Coterie's List for Poe books.  The first is a brand new collection of some of his most famous tales and poems of the macabre, where the latter is the definitive collection of his entire work.  It is hefty so you may want to look into the Vintage Trade edition for your pocket and keep the larger volume at home to peruse.

 

Happy Birthday Edgar Allan Poe (1809-2009) and Happy Halloween to all.

I love Poe! His stories are top-notch scary Halloween reading material. I still remember hearing "The Tell-Tale Heart" read aloud for the first time... I've been hooked on Poe ever since.

My mother had bought a Halloween "Famous Ghost Stories" LP back in the '80's and one of the tracks was "The Tell-Tale Heart."  From that moment on I was in love with Poe and as a kid, really believed the heart he heard was of the old man.

I heard Poe's Annabel Lee and The Raven poem and I've loved him ever since. I especially love his Annabel Lee poem.
