A direct follow-up to "How to Write a Blackwood Article", this short story displays, yet again, the failure of Poe's humor to translate well to modern times (I am assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that it worked better when originally written). The "heroine" (and I use the term loosely) from Blackwood puts herself into a life-threatening predicament and describes her own death in some detail.
