This summer read at least one short story by Edgar Allan Poe.
Just one. You’ll want to read more, but at least read one.
You can read a well known story like The Black Cat, or The Cask of Amonrillado, or The Murders in the Rue Morgue.
Or read one of the lesser known stories (those not made into Vincent Price movies) such as A Tale of the Ragged Mountains, or The Balloon-Hoax.
Then read some of Poe’s poetry.
Poe is the master of mystery and horror, the inventor of the modern detective story, and a true romantic. To put it bluntly, he tells a damn good story.
We’ve all seen the Vincent Price movie versions. Who doesn’t love Vincent Price?
That said, I urge you all to find a quiet corner and READ at least one of Poe’s stories. Just one.
Let me know what you think.
