Meet the Author

Edgar Allan Poe was an American poet, short story writer, playwright, editor, critic, essayist and one of the leaders of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of the macabre and mystery, Poe was one of the early American practitioners of the short story and a progenitor of detective fiction and crime fiction. He is also credited with contributing to the emergent science fiction genre.Poe died at the age of 40. The cause of his death is undetermined and has been attributed to alcohol, drugs, cholera, rabies, suicide (although likely to be mistaken with his suicide attempt in the previous year), tuberculosis, heart disease, brain congestion and other agents.

This book was very amusing. A high quality of confusing vocabulary. Keeps you on the edge of your seat especially the ending! Overall this was a very scary story that will interest all fans of horror.

A giant hall stretches, reaching a lit up room with a glowing floor and the statue of a dragon at the center. The dragon is a golden waterfountain, a pool of the most beautiful fish surround it. A shining, crystal chandelier hangs, candles that never burn out placed on it. The chandelier gives the water and gold a beautiful look. A table of ice that never melts circles the fountain. Glowing white plates lay on the table, gem designs etched into the surface. Silverware made out of real silver is placed by each lovely plate.

Edgar is very strange because he had a bad life. He loved his mother more than anything. She died, and Edgar was very dipressed. He put all his feelings in the stories he wrote. Then he got engaged, the wife died too. Edgar was so depressed. That is all I am going to say.
