Uprising, unveiling, affirm
That the play is the tragedy, “Man,”
And its hero, the Conqueror Worm.–Edgar Allan Poe

Children of horror, follow me as we cross the ghoul guarded gateways, the labyrinth of the lost, and the decrepit crypt into that cherished abyss that is moonlight, swamp, and darkest night. Forever are we outsiders to this world and the coil that is man. And, for that relish in the strange, the grotesque, and the unnerving as we push ever farther, without a torch, flashlight, or candle into shadowed waterways, fog-fetid bayous, and amongst moss-covered oaks. These truly are our home.
Our name is LEGION horror fans for we are many. My LEGION, walk the cobwebbed, cyclopean stairs with me. Climb the bat filled bell tower on the expanse of endless night wind. And fly through mists into ancient cypress as we learn the mysteries of creatures in the dark.
I promise, as we splash and lumber through the darkness, to protect you from the
ghastly ghouls within.
A heart beats in a rat covered tomb, a black cat screams in the shadows, and a raven screeches “Nevermore” as we return to the ghostly grave of Edgar Allan Poe.
Edgar Allan Poe, the master of the macabre, was a writer, editor, and literary critic. He’s best known for his poetry and short stories. Poe is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and of American literature, and he was one of the country’s earliest practitioners of the short story. It’s without question he was the inventor of the detective fiction genre and influential in the emerging genre of science fiction. It is noteworthy that Edgar Allan Poe was the first well-known American writer to earn a living through writing alone. Unfortunately, as with many aspiring writers, it resulted in a financially difficult life and career.
Poe and his works influenced literature around the world, as well as specialized fields such as cosmology and cryptography. He and his work appear throughout popular culture in literature, music, films, and television. A number of his homes are dedicated museums today. The Mystery Writers of America present an annual award known as the Edgar Award for distinguished work in the mystery genre.
Tonight, we present the first in a series of haunting and horrifying poems from Edgar Allan Poe. These are the poems that we believe bring the best in terror and the macabre to give you many sleepless nights. They truly are the ghoulish verses that refuse to stay dead.
It is with sincerest hope that our “from the grave” mentor’s words haunt your life…as he has haunted ours.
