Meet the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.

I love Edgar Allan Poe is a great author I'm facinated by his style, he's dark and glommy but also sarcastic and funny.The black cat is a great storie, it shows how easily you can tormente a person,making them go crazy.It also embrasses the sphycopath inside and the clevernest and crazinest of a killer.

A most gripping story yet. The black cat presonifies the wife because she sweet and loving while the husband on the other hand despises her. When he decides to do away with the black cat with an ax, his wife is the one that dies.

I wrote a story about a black cat, I haven't heard of this, and so I'm not sure if it's similar..I had wrote of a demonic black cat that would only come out at night, and has only black holes for eyes and sharp protruding teeth. And tortures with it's demonic game. By the end the cat had torn out the eyes of the person it was constantly torturing by night.

Edgar Allan Poe We all know the extrordinarie works of Edgar Allan Poe but he still seems to take us by suprise.With a title like that you think that Snow White is a scary storie but you are dead wrong.This is a thrilling mind blowing storie that makes you think twice before buying a cat.I knew that cats had 9 lives but he's like 'Jason'from 'Friday the thirdteen'he just keeps coming back.And trust me when you read this book you will see that his a animal lover and a loving husband.

Robert Poe does a fantastic job at taking his relatives book and making one of the best adaptations i have read from any Poe story. As you read, you feel like your an detective and don't be surprised if you find yourself writing down who you think the killer is. Always fast paced and always a twist around every corner. One will also see how religion, prejudice and the Wicca culture conme into play in this book, soon to be a classic.
