About 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 have always been a sci-fi fan but my knowledge of early works were limited. This was a great compilation of works from the 1800's which is a really interesting view on how people then saw the possible future. I really had to laugh at some of the things they were right and wrong on. Also what I enjoyed was how they gave a little bit of a bio of each author, how they came to their beliefs, etc. Which was a really nice intro before jumping into their short stories. I would be curious to read some more compilations similar to this. Good read!
