New stories by Edgar Allan Poe?
Impossible, you say?
Not at all. Admittedly, Mr. Poe is in no condition to be writing much these days—which is why in this anthology he’s getting a little help from his friends. Friends like Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. Carole Nelson Douglas. John Shirley. Mike Resnick. Some two dozen in all.
These writers were given a task: to take a little-known, unfinished story fragment which Poe wrote near the end of his life and turn it into a complete story—in any way they wished. The only rule was that they use Poe’s language, his images, his ideas—that they truly work together with the master.
Today’s best authors. Joining forces with Edgar Allan Poe himself.
Posthumous collaborations for the ages—collected here in this extraordinary anthology.
Since the Poe fragment’s original publication some sixty years ago, a few authors have attempted to complete it—but this collection marks the first sustained gathering of talent to work on the piece. Editor Christopher Conlon provides an Introduction which explains the background of Poe’s unfinished tale and includes its original, unaltered text, while the completed stories reflect the amazing variety of the writers themselves—from lighthearted fantasy to gothic horror, from romantic adventure to hard-edged science fiction.
This book, then, is a celebration of the art of storytelling—hosted by two dozen dazzling talents, with Mr. Edgar Allan Poe as Guest of Honor.
