Happy Birthday Edgar Allan Poe!!

Happy 206th Birthday to Edgar Allan Poe, father of the detective story, master of the macabre, and one of the most important figures in the rise of the American short story. I couldn't agree with this Lovecraft quote more: "Poe has probably influenced me more than any other one person. If I have ever been able to approximate his kind of thrill, it is only because he himself paved the way by creating a whole atmosphere & method which lesser men can follow with relative ease." — H. P. Lovecraft in a letter to J. Vernon Shea, June 19, 1931. 
Edgar Allan Poe was born 206 years ago today!!!
