really liked it

Collected by the organization that awards the famous ‘Edgar’ busts, MWA, this Poe-offering in honor of his 200th birthday actually pleases. The short stories I took the most joy in probably were those who took inspiration from him or wrote modern-day versions of his tales. I appreciated the understated acknowledgement opposite the saturated wink/wink-nod/nod self aware stories. So, while a few pieces left me feeling less than happy in their attempt at being clever, the others thrilled and inspired.
A few favorites were The Poe Collector, Seeing the Moon, A Nomad of the Night, Challenger, Rattle-Rattle-Rattle, Rue Morgue Noir and The Deadliest Tale of All.

If you love Poe, I truly suggest you sample this tidbit. Upon a midnight dreary if possible.
