You had me at Rin Chupeco and Kendare Blake reimagining Edgar Allan Poe, but then I read the rest of the contributors and almost fainted. This is going to be the best anthology ever. What a blessing.

I am so excited to be part of this anthology!

(And hopefully I will resist the urge to make Poe-themed puns.)

* I have a story in this collection *

And I love it so. Each retelling transforms the way I look at the original, and makes me think.

"Unnatural love kills, the whispers claimed, or spoils at least, and when sickness comes, a ruined girl has no defense against the cold winds of hell, nor the yearnings of heaven.”

This was a bone chilling collection that will make you sleep with the lights on for awhile. Prepare yourself for horror like you have never witnessed before.

There were a couple of stories that didn't work for me at all, but several more really shone. A printing error meant that Amanda Lovelace's contribution didn't appear properly, and I'm really, really curious to see what she's done in a later ARC/final copy! Regardless of which Poe stories or poems you most enjoy, this collection will assuredly have something for you. Full review TK.

A unique and haunting story collection that launches off Edgar Allen Poe's literary works but becomes far more. Standouts include Tiffany Jackson's truly terrifying take on The Cask of Amontillado and Tessa Gratton's stunning interpretation of Annabel Lee.
