Happy Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe!


Neil Gaiman says Edgar Allan Poe should be read aloud, and he’s right: he recorded this video of him reading”The Raven” in 2016 as part of Pat Rothfuss’s Worldbuilders charity drive. It’s Poe’s birthday today, and I can think of no better way to celebrate it than to listen to it again.

Other ways to celebrate this magnificent torch:

* The magnificent pop-up variant

* The 50s hipster argot edition

* The 1969 rock-and-roll version

* Vincent Price and Boris Karloff’s Raven-inspired magical duel
