it was amazing

As a child of 8 or 9, I picked up a book by Poe that likely belonged to my father. I cannot remember which book it was and to be honest, it doesn't matter because I quickly devoured everything by Poe I could get my hands on in quick succession. Thus began my love affair with the dark world of the macabre and Poe. I remember my teacher and the school librarian both being quite alarmed at my choices of reading material. Thankfully, I was raised by parents who believed that one should never discourage a child from reading anything unless it was going to be truly harmful to them. They say with genius comes madness and I believe truer words were never spoken in regards to Poe. His work is timeless and no doubt dark and scary no matter your age.
