Special Halloween Episode: ‘The Raven’

Happy Halloween, everyone! To celebrate, here’s a little spookesode, courtesy of one of my favorite characters and one of America’s greatest writers, Edgar Allan Poe. One good turn deserves another: I had so much fun writing a fictional version of him for Purgatory, that it seems only fitting that I present his classic poem, The Raven. I love some of the phrases he turns in this poem — “grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt”, for example. It really is a musical work. Mr. Poe was much more than the comic figure I made him out to be in my novel. He was the original American mystery and horror writer.I leave you with one word: Nevermore. Enjoy!
