About the Author:
Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is one of America's greatest and best-loved writers. Known as the father of the detective story, Poe is perhaps most famous for his short stories--particularly his shrewd mysteries and chilling, often grotesque tales of horror--he was also an extremely accomplished poet and a tough literary critic.
Poe's life was not far removed from the drama of his fiction. Orphaned at a young age, he was raised by a foster family. As a young man, he developed problems with gambling, debts, and alcohol, and was even dismissed from the army. His love life was marked by tragedy and heartbreak. Despite these difficulties, Poe produced many works now considered essential to the American literary canon.
Daniel Stashower is a member of the Baker Street Irregulars and is the author of Teller of Tales: The Life of Arthur Conan Doyle. He is also a co-editor of several other books about Sherlock Holmes and his creator, including Arthur Conan Doyle: A Life in Letters.
