Since 2009 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Edgar Allan Poe, a whole slew of books--or perhaps sleuth of books, since Poe invented the detective tale--have been released. My current review on Monsters and Critics examines three of these books:
- In the Shadow of the Master, edited by Michael Connelly;
- On a Raven's Wing: New Tales in Honor of Edgar Allan Poe, edited by Stuart M. Kaminsky; and
- Poe: 19 New Tales Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, edited by Ellen Datlow.
