Overview

The master of the macabre is back. A fictional memoir told in Edgar Allan Poe's own literary style, "Black Plume" recreates in vivid detail Poe's strange marriage to his child-bride, his struggle to make a living, his addiction to alcohol and his agonizing battle against the sensuality of his nature.
Rather than violate the innocence of his wife, Poe indulges in a passionate, opium-laced affair with two mysterious fortune tellers, whose exotic allure blinds him to the danger that swirls around them. When the women are brutally murdered, Poe is drawn into an adventure that brings him face to face with a terror even he couldn't have invented...and inspires his uniquely dark imagination to create the first American detective story.
Told with chilling detail, "Black Plume" will light up your evenings and darken your days.
