In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe edited by Leslie S Klinger My thanks to my contacts at Pegasus Books, Iris Blasi, Katie McGuire, and Maia Larson, for my review copy of this book. You ladies rock! The volume is a collection of short horror fiction written by various co-scary story writers of Edgar Allan Poe. They cover a time period from 1816 to 1914. Some of them were old friends of mine and some I read for the first time in this collection. Horror fiction can be about ghosts, the supernatural, vampires, werewolves, zombies and other dwellers in the dark. The can be about strange cities, haunted houses, deserted towns, ships, trains, buses, cars, and a gentle stroll by the sea. There can be actual evil forces active in the story or the whole can take place inside a person’s head. Whether dreams or delusions, the mind can cause horror like no other. I give the volume four stars Quoth the Raven
