Seasonably Spooky Stories to Read: Edgar Allan Poe’s Works

Think Spooky Stories, and most likely, you think Edgar Allan Poe. Born in Boston, Massachusetts on January 19th, 1809, Poe became famous as a short-story writer, poet, critic, and editor. Author of such psychological terror classics as The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, and too many others to list, Poe also invented the detective story with The Murders in the Rue Morgue. Learn more about this literary pioneer at poemuseum.org.
