We are celebrating the 200th anniversary of Poe's birth this year. His 200th birthday was in January. I am nuts about Poe, so, here's a website that changes almost every day. It's a blog that has info/trivia about Poe.I look at it daily. The man that does the blog is quite the expert,and he has a lot of cool things to share. So, I'd highly recommend you check it out. You can go back all the way to the beginning of the year to read his posts , if you like,and I ordered a calendar from him , way lower then regular price due to it being a 2009 calendar. I received it in the mail. Also this guy knows Matthew Pearl who wrote THE POE SHADOW. I've actually met Matthew. He's a really great guy,and so interesting!!! I' ve invited him to join the group. Hope , hope, hope he will. Anyway, here are two websites to enjoy,and let me know if you decide to read Matthew Pearl's novel, or any of his novels. I think they are great!

Pat | 2 comments Great idea to start this group Gary, I love everything POE too. Thanks for the website info, it's really interesting.
I loved Matthew Pearl's book "The Poe Shadow". It's a nice addition to my book collection concerning Poe.
