Edgar Allan Poe’s spirit hovers over the Mid-Atlantic. If you fly over the region at night, you can see a string of lights connecting places where Poe lived and worked: Richmond, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York. Each has a Poe museum. Looking forward to the publication of my Poe-themed mystery, The Tell-Tale Tarte, I visited the Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond last weekend. What a treasure trove!
The museum's website has a wealth of information about Poe and the artifacts in its collection. When you visit the museum, you will definitely encounter Poe's haunting spirit. For more about Poe, visit these pages on my website: Origin of the Detective Story, Poe and Abraham Lincoln, and a Poe trivia quiz.
This blog, like the books and stories I write, combines mysteries, food, trivia, and a bit of humor to leaven the grim subject of crime. Sometimes random subjects intrude here .
