The Collected Tales of Edgar Allan Poe By Edgar Allan Poe
eBook (ePub): $3.99
As a storywriter and poet, Edgar Allan Poe was master of the macabre and one of America's great literary geniuses. His collection of poems, short stories, and literary criticism not only helped... More > define the horror genre, but it transcended it, and would go on to influence subsequent strains of mystery, crime fiction, and sci-fi. Poe's classic masterpieces include: "The Raven," "The Tell Tale Heart," "The Fall of the House of Usher," and many more. Poe was the first well-known American author to make a living solely by writing, which, because he lived a tormented life anyway, was something of a curse. At the time the U.S. publishing industry was a mess: publishers bootlegged British works instead of paying local authors for original work. Appropriate to the artist's life and work, Poe died at the age of 40 from unknown causes, though it's been "variously attributed to alcohol, brain congestion, cholera, drugs, heart disease, rabies, suicide, tuberculosis, and other agents."< Less

The Hell In me, The Hell In you By Craig Podmore

“UK born writer, photographer and filmmaker, Craig Podmore, brings us another 131 pounds of flesh in his new and gravel-rash-raw collection of poetry The Hell in Me, the Hell in You. A textual... More > viewpoint of a nightmarish pop-culture of the future; a snuff television addled society and dirty cum-faced blow jobs, Craig invites De Sade to the table and serves him with blood and champagne. Its bleak, unrelenting and it will most likely piss a lot of people off, like all good literature with intent and purpose, it proposes a dark viewpoint of reality that is hard to argue against or ignore.The poems are short, punchy and without dull prose or unnecessary lines. Some things are just a soft tap, a quick squizz over and it’s done, put the book down and walk away. Craig’s work in this collection is as much a punch in the face to read,as it would have been to write and to live. Solid and meaty, this book burns spot fires exactly where they should be lit; in your guts.” - Ben John Smith< Less
