Mr Gaiman posted this over in FB land. It‘s from a couple of years ago but it‘s still a fun listen to him read The Raven.


Happy Halloween, y‘all! 🎃 👻 🧛‍♂️

On a side note, I won't be taking part in the pumpkin carving contest as my hands mirror and I'm awkward with knives.

I looked through all my books and not a one had a raven on it, so I'm coping out a little. My husband knows like half this poem by heart, which is wild!

"I must not only punish, but punish with impunity."

The Cask of Amontillado is my favorite Poe work. As I've been reading through the short stories the past few days, I am finding that they are hit or miss for me. Some are excellent and really strike a chord with me, but others bore me to tears. I have mostly skimmed or bailed on those. I must confess though that I'm not a huge fan of short stories in general. #shortstories #poe

rretzler I‘m not a huge fan of short stories either. There are a couple that I can think of that I love (tagged is my favorite), but most I could take or leave. 8mo
cherinium @rretzler I'll have to look into that one. Thanks for the recommendation. 8mo
rretzler You can find it online for free but it‘s not a story that everyone likes! 8mo

@mjester Here is my edition. It is my most favorite book in my collection. Every once in awhile I have to take it down off the shelf and read it. My favorite works by him include The Tell-Tale Heart and The Bells but my utmost favorite would have to be The Masque of the Red Death.
Have you seen any of the original Vincent Price/Poe films?

ravenlee I saw The House of Usher years ago. Creepy. Love Vincent Price. Have you seen him in Laura? Very different from his usual roles. 12mo
Leniverse Gorgeous edition! 😍 Yes, I‘ve seen the movies. I love Vincent Price. But the movies are only loosely based on Poe‘s stories and more funny than horrifying. 12mo
Gina I love V. Price! I am reading... apparently he transtated Poes works into French and had quite the man crush on him in the 19th century! 12mo
See All 13 Comments
Gina Translated 12mo
SumisBooks @ravenlee @Leniverse @Gina yes he did actually have quite a man crush on Edgar Allan Poe. I ask because he is probably without a doubt my most favorite actor of all time and a few years ago I was privileged enough to go to a horror convention and meet his daughter. I promised myself that I wouldn't cry in front of her but I ended up balling like a baby 😭😭😭 12mo
Gina Wow that is soooo neat! He seemed like such a nice man. I loved his adverts and commericals in the 70s and 80s 12mo
SumisBooks @Gina thank you so much! It was definitely one of the highlights of my life. I also own a few of his written works. One of my favorites as his book called Monsters. I spent a pretty penny on adding it to my collection but well worth it!!! 12mo
mjester @TheReadingMermaid I have seen The Pit and the Pendulum with Vincent Price. Really creepy. I like that copy you have, no wonder it's your favorite. 12mo
SumisBooks @mjester also if you have Netflix streaming, there is an animated feature called Extraordinary Tales on there and it is five or six animated stories by Edgar Allan Poe. But the narrators are what you really want to watch it for. The Tell-Tale Heart is narrated by none other than Bela Lugosi!!!!😍😍😍 12mo
mjester @TheReadingMermaid I sure will check that out. Bela Lugosi! 😻 12mo
SumisBooks @mjester thank you for sharing with me this morning. I am reading my Poe book now. Needed a break from studying 😜 12mo

Edgar Allan Poe May not have been born in Baltimore but it‘s where he died and is buried #MyTown #BaltimoreMD We have Poe themed Bars & Restaurants, Poe‘s grave where you can take a tour and listen to performances of his works. If you love Poe it is a fun place to visit 😊 #ANewChapter 🥂

A book that I've been reading on and off for ages, it's just overwhelmingly huge; it's such a beautiful book. My favourite story so far would be Bon Bon, it was rather witty.

Have you read any Poe?
What's your favourite piece of writing by him?

I'd also like to watch some Poe adapted movies, could you recommend any?

lalogan Poe has always been a favorite of mine. I don‘t think I could pick just one - I love so many of his stories and poems for different reasons. I have yet to see a movie adaptation I enjoyed, although I will say the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror featuring The Raven was pretty cute. Also, there is a movie called The Raven with John Cusack playing Poe and it was entertaining- it was more of a historical fiction than an actual adaptation of his works. 2y
DGRachel I love Poe. I haven‘t read all of his work, but I have sentimental attachments to The Cask of Amontillado and The Masque of the Red Death. 2y
rohit-sawant Really cool edition! Hard to pick a fave, but "The Tell-Tale Heart," "Ligeia," "The Black Cat," "The Fall of the House of Usher," & "William Wilson" definitely top the list. 2y

Be still my "heart". I can't believe I found this! I'm so excited to have found it just waiting for me in my room.


Just read "The Balloon-Hoax" and "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" again today. I'm rereading the ones I read for school for one of the prompts on the Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge. These two are not my faves but I did enjoy rereading "...Rue Morgue" more than "The Balloon-Hoax" though. ?

GarthRanzz They used to have so many cool Poe items. I was able to actually get one of the lunchboxes a few years ago. It‘s still in the plastic. I haven‘t looked at their site in a long time though. Not sure what else has passed through that I missed. @mypoesoul and I also just recently stumbled upon these.
