Summary

To coincide with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Edgar Allan Poe, this anthology celebrates the depth and diversity of one of the most important figures in literature. Compiled by multi-award winning editor Ellen Datlow, it presents some of the foremost talents of the genre, who have come together to reimagine tales inspired by Poe. 

Sharyn McCrumb, Lucius Shepard, Pat Cadigan, M. Rickert, and more have lent their craft to this anthology, retelling such classics as "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Tell-Tale Heart", and "The Masque of the Red Death", exploring the very fringes of the genre.

A good selection, high quality tales. Thought provoking - and has sent me back to reread Poe himself.
