Dismal, dreary Poe day to you all…

It’s Eddie Poe’s Birthday!
Light a black candle, curl up with a big, bulky, leatherette-bound volume of the works of the Grand Master of Terror and Suspense and forget the world.

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” – E.A.P.

Now seek out some great horror to fill your night with the terrors of The Night’s Plutonian Shore. Might I suggest the excellent novella The Poe Toaster? Based upon the real mysteries surrounding Poe’s last days, and written by the estimable Jennifer Word. Available on Smashwords,  Kindle and Nook!

    Your buddy,
